    tell you the truth being honest,

    many ppl use to stay u can fix the problem by wrapping a towel around the 360...

    i thought it was Bullcrap, but i tried it and it seriously works...

    you might want to try

    oh and the more you wrap it the more it works...

    Oo... I like your idea... Buy a RROD box, fix it, then flash it.

    Ima do that once I get some cash.

    Yeah be carefull tho, some people try and fix it themselfs and severly mess up the xbox leaving you with it ... which you then have to sell on if u cant fix it etc...

    So im guessin ur going on ebay, message the seller asking him is the warrenty still valid, if it is buy it nd send it back LOL! a new xbox for 30 job dun.

    If the warranty is still good I doubt they'd be selling it on eBay with RRoD though...
