    Leaded reball is the only real permanent fix for RRoD.

    -New Topic-
    Flashing the DVD drive firmware is good, but JTAGing is way more fun.

    The red ring of death has nothing to do with flashing the 360 drive. The red ring is because of the CPU or GPU has broken a solder. Also the thermal gel has melted off the CPU or GPU causing the 360 to over heat. So ways to fix this get some rubbing alcohol clean both processors till mirror finish. Then get so thermal gel from radio shack cover evenly over both processors rebuild 360 "hope for the best" . Then if that does not work you need to take 360 apart. Take fans set on top of the heat sink of the CPU keeping it cool while the GPU over heats 45 min should be good. It will fix the solder itself worked 10 for 10 for me so it does work. This is basically how you do this there are more steps with drilling, new screws and washers so pm me if needed and mail 360 to me if you cant do it good luck all.

    I know RRoD has nothing to do with flashing the drive. You must have misunderstood my post. I was talking about two different things.

    Like I said the only permanent fix for RRoD is to reball the GPU with leaded solder. Google it. The fixes you are doing are only temporary. I know why it happens and I know how to fix it the right way. Also the removing the fan from the gpu and only cooloing the cpu in attempt to get the cpu to reflow itself does nothing. The GPU can not get hot enough to melt the solder balls by itself. Even it it did somehow work, RRoD will be back. The solder Microsoft used was not make to stand up to that much heat. Thanks for the offer but I can fix them myself, the right way.

    I'm not trying to crap on your thread, I was just putting the information out. I'm not going to sit here and argue. If the way you "fix" them works then that's great. Just maybe do some research as to the proper fix. Its not cheap though.

    Like I said I'm not here to argue and I admit that came off wrong. I didn't mean to attack you or the way you fix them. I do appreciate what you are doing here.

    I totally agree. That was the wrong way to go. Its no competition. I would get on Live with ya, but ever since they banned me back in Novermber I never renewed. I have a different 360 but its JTAGed so you get banned in a few hours. I'm not one of those MW2 hackers, I hate that. You ought to look into a JTAG they're tons of fun.

    All my JTAGs have LT. I sell them over a xbox-scene.com. Both my brothers like to play online as well, so I bought them some Arcades and flashed LT on them. My one brother got banned back in November as well. It was his 360 he bought and I talked him in to flashing the drive. Kind of felt bad he got banned so I bought him a new one.

    That's a dangerous move playing Madden that early. Do you run your games through ABGX360?

    I'm with you on that one. When my systems got banned I had a Samsung with iXtreme 1.61 and a Hitachi with iXtreme 1.51. It was before the days of LT. I read already that the new consoles trip a switch when you open the console. Instant ban even without modding the drive, not that you can anyway.

    That seams illegal, just for the fact that pretty much there saying you cant even open the system to clean it. microsoft is such crap they already monopolized the market they steal every idea under the sun copy other people product then remake with a twist. and they still try to nickel and dime you on everything.
