Also, when i first turned it on, it took a lot longer the usual for the three red lights to appear.

I did 310 F for 1 min
350 F for 1 and a half min
400 F for 1 min
445 F for 4 min
And I did this in a normal oven.

I think i got somewhere now. The xbox has TWO red lights. This means it's overheated. I dont have the heatsinks or anything on. The difference this time was i baked it at 500 F, for 8 and a half minutes. Anyways, I'm hoping this is better, and do i put the heatsinks on?

You can overheat the solder and ruin the chips themselves if you get them to hot and heat guns get to hot. Ovens are in consistent and do not heat properly(temp display is off usually).
Stop trying to save money by NOT sending it to a Professional to get repaired. I charge $50 for a reflow and $20 on Ebay.
STOP BEING CHEAP! Now you're pretty much screwed because your 0102 error was easily fixable but after many failed oven attempts,etc your console is doomed. 0102=Reball upon failed Reflow attempts.
Well just because it's overheating doesn't mean once you fix that the initial red ring error won't be there. More than likely it will be there once you fix the 2 red rings. If you don't have the heat sinks on it's not making contact causing the 2 red rings.
Put them on and try it out.
You will just end up doing more damage than good with a heat gun. STOP WATCHING THESE KIDS thinking they know WTF they're doing! If you don't, you will regret it. Some get lucky and don't damage components but most do and end up making the console harder and harder to save.

Anyways, I'll wait another hour and see what happens

If you have years of experience repairing these you would know the only proper way is a BGA Rework/Hot Air Machine or IR Rework/Reball machine.
@John Check the sec. error on the 2 red rings. This will tell you what is overheating. Going to be 0011 or 0012(cpu or gpu). It can also be a 0013(RAM) but probably not. If it's 0011 add some more thermal paste on the chips and remove the metal 4 washers that sit right under the CPU on the top side of the board. If it's the GPU overheating try the same thing and just leave the CPU alone.
This will help get rid of the overheating but then the initial red ring error may still pop up or it will boot or not boot showing a different sec. error.
As for spending to much money/time. I cannot agree completely. This is why I keep saying to people get it done right the first time. Stop wasting so much time/money on trying to do "tricks" to save some money because in the end, you will spend more. Plus let the repair company worry about the error for a few months(most warranty).

Why I'm against oven reflows and heat gun reflows.
