Sysadmin, Because Even Developers Need Heroes

Fixing Bandar's Xbox 360

2009-11-04 by Mohammad H. Al-Shami

A few days ago my friend, Bandar, was disappointed because his Xbox 360 was freezing up. After a few Google searches we realized that this is the prequel to the famous RRoD (Red Ring of Death).

Since we didn’t want to see an RRoD on Bander’s precious Xbox, we decided to take it apart and fix the heat sink. Midway we decided to document the endeavor. Here you go

And the result, you ask? Drum rolls please.


Congrats man, hope you spend many hours enjoying it.
