    Pretty sure you can wrap your 360 in towels and let it run for like 30 minutes, turn it off, turn it back on, make sure it has RROD, and ship :thumbup:

    try just sending it in saying it has the red lights. They have to give you the benefit if the doubt when you send it in because sometime a RROD xbox will boot perfectly fine then freeze after 10 mins of playing. Its not like they have a mexican sitting there for hours testing every xbox.

    Best way for prod is to head it up. Get a blow dryer or a heater and blow some hot *** air in it while its playing a movie. Worked for me twice.
