definitely the easiest way even for idiots

heating up the jewel with the hair dryer and while it's heating up, slowly pull out the jewel by sticking a very fine tipped icepick *worked for me anyway*

should come off nice and smooth

never force the shit tho smile.gif

GL!

I heated it from the inside.
I took the Xbox apart, removed the heat shield, and proceeded to use a hairdryer on the inside of the case.

I dremeled the little tab under the jewel. Steamed the controller for 5 minutes. Used a small flat head to push the jewel out with the hole I created with the dremel. Worked like butter baby! smile.gif

The best way is to talk dirty to it and show it other jewels with the paint off.

Tee hee laugh.gif

I thought I would make a funny on my 100th post.
