I just fixed a 0021 error. It was NOT the drive.
The error was bad soldering af the southbridge. It was fixed by resoldering the southbridge, with a hot air gun.

Hey

I have the 0021 error and have tried everything possible with out voiding my warranty. I was wondering if it is possible to flash my Xbox 360 without having to void the warranty, apparently according to my friend who works in a gaming store says that there is a way to do so using the USB and some program that the store purchased to update the firmware for ppl that don't have internet and all this is done without voiding the warranty.
I would ask him what the program is called but he is out the country at the moment and i would like to know soon as possible, so just asking here first till he arrives back at work.

thanks

you cant flash a drive without voiding the warrenty, flashing the drive itself voids the warrenty, if you have a warrenty and an error why not just have MS fix it for free?

Ok two questions

1) Did the DVD drive fix work on an Xbox that has previously been working before with the flashed drive?
It seems like that fix would only fix a 0021 error happening immediately after a flash, not on a system that was running fine.


2) How do you resolder the Southbridge? Do you have to unsolder the chip off the board? How do you do this?


0021 error is destroying my life..

thanks in advance

I highly doubt that the error 0021 is a drive related error.

I got an xbox with an error of 0102, fixed it by bending the xclamps to give it more tension,but it still locked up while playing games, but no 3rod.

then i decided to just replace the xclamps with bolts, now i get 0021.

Seams like 0102 and 0021 are closely related, dealing with the GPU.

also i noticed that after the 0102 error the fans were running very high

but now with the 0021 the fans ramp up slower, but still get very high.

Update, I'm not sure but i think a 0021 is a fatal hardware failure specific to the GPU, i closely examined the GPU and saw that it had hair lin cracks, this would explain the high temps im getting. though while working on fixing the problem i got a 0020.

i have come to the conclusion that the xbox 360 is the worst designed game console ever
