    How easy is it to do a DIY RROD fix?

    Are there any easy guides? Is it worth me buying my mates 3 red ring 360 Pro for £20? Thanks.

    you could still try and blag it, ive had stories of them getting replaced without sticker on. just luck of the draw. either way... your console gets returned

    Would they still take it without reciept/proof of purchase?

    simple solution:
    take it
    smash it
    buy a ps3

    Ide strongly recommend getting someone who has previously done this.. it isnt as easy as just peeling it straight off it can get tricky.

    im just about to attempt the same thing. had the clamp fix sitting around for a few weeks now - just havent had the time to get on with it.....i attempted to send back to MS but was 3 mnths out of warranty.

    its not easy, tbh honest it is a bit of a pain but great sense o accomplishment to see it working again, have done it only once and that was enough (only lasted or 6 months after though)

    smashed Xbox 360 vs normal PS3...........I'll take the Xbox

    try console wizard it cost me £35 quid with pick up and drop off by parcelforce, he flashed it and made it like new. No problems since.
