    Then I turned it on for the 3rd time after and it works now, I turned it on and off about 3 or 4 times after and no RROD, wtf :ugh:

    Any of you ever had this before? RROD but it seems here and there, then all of a sudden it works again?

    I had this happen with my personal XBox 360, bought this one off eBay about a year ago. It decided to RR probably 8 months after I got it (and I had actually just hooked it up back online for the first time in 4 months after the ban waves, and it missed the ban) right after I finished turning it on and off 2-3 times when I was un-crippling a client's hard drive. I turned it off-on twice in a row. I said fuck it. Played on my back-up 360 in the other room for a couple of days.

    I came back to my original 360 just to test it one more time before I opened it up to work my magic (X-Clamp Fix), mother fucker worked. And it's been working fine 3 months later. I went ahead and did the X-Clamp fix last week and I'm selling it today for $190. :rofl:

    xclamp fix it just replacing the goofy heatsink clamps with bolts/washers. Reflow is heating up the board to re-melt the solder.

    hmm sounds like reflow would be more beneficial no? What kind of tools do you need to do a reflow? I googled it and holy fuck it looks complicated. :wtc:

    Both are temporary fixes. :dunno:

    It's random as far as how long they last. The average rate is about 3-6 months. I've had a few rare ones last more than a year to this day. Then there are those faggot boxes that last like 3 weeks. I think I've only had maybe 3-4 of those happen out of...shit...120 RRoD fixes total?

    buy a Jasper (newer revision) and be done with it. I mean I'm sure they red ting too but they seem to be doing pretty good so far.

    My method of "reflowing" is to unhook the fan and turn it one for ~10 mins to overheat it. :o
    It works for a couple months.

    Ya im gonna pick one up after work today and take it home, swap the bottom and top shells with my current one, and refund it. :)

    Free upgrade to Jasper. Thats how i feel towards Microshit after going through 4 of these pieces of shit. Are all units sold now pretty much gaurentted jaspers? or do i have to go into the store and still stalk for the box labels :greddy:
