So I ordered two RRoD 360's, found they had already been messed with, and had to gun.
I've only gunned the first one so far.
Started it up, found that the drive says "Unplayable Disc", no matter if the firmware is hacked or stock, no matter if the game is original or burned. However, it Will play music discs. ???
The drive makes odd clicking noises, so it makes me feel that it's on its way out.
The model is 0047DJ.
I also have a 0078FK. Is there anyway to swap the hardware and retain the same DVD drive board straight up, or do I have to do the key flashing and everything like that?
If you have any additional information such as tutorials for this or whatnot, please let me know, it would be greatly appreciated.
Another problem I'm having is after the gunning, the 'Box runs awfully hot, and after a few minutes on it locks up. Could this be a problem with having the GPU heatsink on too tight or something? It has a screw, nylon washer, Mo-Bo, nylon washer, heatsink. Tips on getting it to run cooler would also be appreciated.
Also shout out to Wilhelm, I thought that the DVD drive was causing 0021. Just had to regun it!
