first things frst im pretty new to new xbox at all, but i already modded/unbricked sucessfully some psps, wiis, ps3s and other stuff.(/edit im an it specialist and my dad was electrician with master degree(and more^^), hope i described everything right, so i've got really good acces to tools/parts/knowledge all over)
And this is the first board i register to about this because its the first pretty "trustworthy" i found ^^
Btt: i'd get an xbox from a friend, he had it now for about a year in his closet with 3 ROD, 0102, so he asked me if i wanted to give it a try or else he would trash it :/
So i tried> heat gun fix(like in a dumb yt video, isolated the sorrounds and heated only gpu chip, worked for 10minutes, rrod>0102 -.-), after getting more information i decieded to replace x-clamps with bolts and washers and replace the crappy thermal paste with AS5.
After getting it altogether again (dumb i know) i got 0020, loosed the gpu bolts a tiny bit and got 0102 again, now im going to do it all over again and try the heat gun fix again but without anything on the board and i wanted to ask you pr0s for tips^^
Should i try to to heat up also the cpu and/or ram too? Is it even possible to "reflow" or reowrk with a gun properly? it has a pretty good heat point and gets above 400° at level 2, but still im not certain about that method.
Some suggestions about duration/intensity/isolation or anything else? I already build a holder for the board when i treid the fix first, so a clean and steady environment is given.
Thx forward for all those who'll read this ^^(and sry for my english i'm german^^)
p.s: should/could i open a new thread?
