A few weeks ago my buddy's xbox 360 got the RROD, but, because he was getting an elite for his birthday, if I could fix it, I could have it. And so I started a desperate crusade to find an easy, cheap and lasting fix for the dreaded RROD. THIS IS IT!!!
(Note: this fix requires you to open the console, THIS WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY! if your warranty is still valid, just send your xbox to Microsoft.)
Step 1: So What Is It??
This is known as the penny fix. I know some people imediately think that 8 pennys cannot fix an xbox hardware problem and now think my instructabe is a load of bull. please just read one step further and i will explain exactly how and why this works.
