    Started a little business in my city, buying & fixing peoples RROD xboxs.
    The elite in the middle is mine and it works fine and has a warranty :tongue:


    [​IMG]

    Total cost of the 4 white ones was $300CAN, that's also including 3 harddrives, a wireless controller, headset, play and charge cable, and they all have power and AV cables.

    That one with the sticker is signed by Billy Talent.

    I also managed to get MS to fix one for free, I'm just waiting for their box :thumbup:

    Good deal?

    I didn't even know 2 of them came with HDDs so I'm pretty satisfied. It doesn't even matter that I bricked 2 of the drives because it's still a good deal :thumbup:

    You should move to Canada, then you can take advantage of business opportunity like this yourself!

    Fixing one by yourself will cost you maybe $25 because you need thermal paste which is a tad pricey.
    I suggest following Scar's tutorial

    I think I've repaired about 10 so far and sold them on ebay. Its a great way for students to make a little extra cash.

    I sell locally because you can make more money. Shipping = less profit

    I haven't a clue where you find people willing to rid of their boxes for so little.
    Only places I would ever look would be here or X-S, and most there know how to X-Clamp. >_<
