I am thinking about removing my jewel and adding a new one. Last Xbox I had i used a hair dryer to try and remove it... damn thing god pretty hot but never came off. i tried it again and used a butter knife to get under it, scratched the case a bit but came off.
I heard if i stick the case in the freezer for long the jewel may come off. anyone try this yet and did it work well?

I ended up cracking my case with this method. Just be careful (unlike me) and you should be all right though. cool.gif

That worked perfectly for me, put it in freezer for about 30 min, took it out, than hit under the jewel with an hammer, and the jewel popped right off.

just dont hit to hard.

I've used the freezer method on 4 xboxs and it works great. Like the others have said be careful though, I usually hit mine with the handle of a screwdriver that is hard rubber so I don't knick anything up. don't be afraid to be afraid to give it a few good whacks.
