So I have a console that had 0021, I got a heatgun and reflowed it. Then I put the bolts on the back and it went back to error code 0020 so I though, "Ok no big deal just mess with the tightness for a while." Well, after an hour of screwing with those bolts I decided to just pull an xclamp, and put it on instead of the bolts. I got it all set and it still flashed 0020. Then I restarted it and it flashed 0001. Restarted again and 0020. I played around with the tightness of the pegs on the xclamp, but with no success.

Finally I dialed it in right and started it up. It flashed green lights then I heard a POP and something started smoking. I restarted and got 0001. i can't find anything though that blew. All the capacitors and other "cans" on the mobo are in good shape. Exactly what happened?

Something on your board blew. I'd guess it's a capacitor, as those are typically what fail after a bad heat gun job.

Are you sure you're not missing something? Extensive pics would be helpful. (I'm talking good, clear, high-res pics, not blurry crap.)

I second a blown capacitor. They are the only thing on a motherboard that would "pop".
