    I have a good friend who repairs the rrod's with some expensive equipment. He heats and removes the chip cleans up the crap ms solder resolders and bobs your uncle. All this for 35. But the downside is postage- about 11 to post one way so thats 57 total repair cost and new Arcade is less than 100.

    I know you think it's fixed because its now working but this is only temporary. What you've done is corrected the warping of the MB. This will only last for about 6mths (IME). The 360 will continue to get hot due to a poor design with bad airflow and the solder joints around the gpu will breakdown permanantly. I would definately get someone with a reball station to do the job properly. But this only my opinion from my own experiences.

    forgot to add. the reason the solder joints break is because of the CHEAP solder MS uses

    I buy xbox 360's with rrod off ebay and fix them all the same way... the way I do it is the same as the above shown link... works great, then I sell them on... Very few can't be fixed, however, ones where ppl towel them ect (all the crap quick fixes) can ruin the CPU/GPU points and then you have a very different problem. Other great methods include case mods...try these:

    Xbox 360 (VERY GOOD)

    Thermal Paste and How To Use It - techPowerUp! Forums

    techPowerUp! :: How do I properly lap a heatsink/ waterblock?

    Xbox_360_Cooling_Mod

    Xbox-experts.com - Tutorial - Heatgunning with Isolation (LAST OPTION!!)

    After all this if nothing works...then sell it on ebay for scrap/parts and get a new elite! Hope this helps....it fixes them for me!
