couldnt you just like force rrod, than gut swap it with a new xbox? im assuming this would work as long as you blow dry off the serial sticker and swap them as well. not positive if you would even have to swap the serial number as i haven't opened my xbox before.

What do you mean by serial sticker? do you mean the one that you have to remove in order to open the xbox or the one on the back that actually shows the sticker?

dont worry about the serial, most people a walmart just dont care. i would go there right before they close when they just want to go home.

Induce RROD on it and then send that S*** in.

That could work, but i thought you get on the "do not fix" list when you get console banned

Yea i got on just now to learn my console had been banned, I was none too happy i have another working one and i just bought a RROD one, any tips to get it beyond repair so they will be forced to send me a new one?

Also all of my gamertags reset to zero

If your out of the 3-year RROD warranty, just re-register it under another name, since that renews the RROD warranty. And if you're console banned, just force RROD and ship it in. I have never heard of a do not fix list. It would be a hard job to go look up serial numbers of every Xbox that comes in, especially since it's probably a lot. So, my assumption is, there is no such thing. Most people get a console in a couple of days. I got mine on Wednesday and I shipped it out Friday.

When you get your new console, you can always re-mod the DVD drive.

So you are trying to get rrod so they will send you a refurb one?

Yep my arcade console was banned yesterday so I'm trying to force RROD to the point they just send me a new one :cursing: I taped up the holes on it and wrapped two towels around it has been about 10 hours now and still no RROD, if it doesnt work soon i'll just pop off the RAM chip.

this one isn't flashed or anything either they banned it for a couple of soft mods my friends have worse on theirs and they haven't been banned

My friend sent his in when it was banned. But they might update the blacklist every week or something, otherwise just use someone else's serial xD, they will probably say they have lost it and send you a knew one.

Has anyone actually ever sent their banned console in and not have it fixed?
