The thing is I heard a heat gun could damage the 360 and I have a heat gun with like the lowest setting being like 450 degrees I think. But I wanted to know what does he mean by memory issues or short on the motherboard also he said he uses a special reflowing station. this xbox is precious because it has the older kernel
It has been speculated that the memory chips on the board can cause these errors, but it's rare for that to happen (if it happens). I'm not even sure if it's anything more than "theory". If he really does have a reflow station and that didn't work then I'm not sure he is to blame.
When I did mine I used a heatgun with about that temperature. Tin foiled everything except the GPU and HANA chips and went back and forth on the back of the motherboard for 4 minutes, and 1 minute on top. It worked.
Really it seems like you don't have much to lose, so you might as well try it. Just be gentle. If you go on craigslist for your area and just pick up a random red-ringed xbox, they're usually 7 series or earlier dashboard. I have 3 myself
