    It's RROD weather, I can feel mine urging to go red whenever I turn it on lately.

    Re: repair questions

    Well my baby was picked up Fri & got to Germany yesterday.
    I've got Halo3 & COD5 to play when it comes back so I hope they can pull their fingers out! I'm hoping my Xbox skin goes back on properly as I had to peel it off before sending

    mine should (apparently) be delivered tomorrow, so 12 days (7 full working days) most of which spent in transit! Oh how I've missed it!

    To completely fix/ best prevention of the RRoD issue it requires more than the above. If you go on modding sites only a full heatgun and re-soldering in some cases is the way to go and if your not willing to do this just send it back to MS.

    Like the majority of folks who own a 360 mine is white

    Elites are a bit redundant now that they all have HDMI & you can buy HDDs easily, time for a change MS! Maybe by the time this RRODs again & is out of warranty I can buy the new colour/version
