From trash to treasure

by bri1232001

My Problem

Found an xbox someone had put on the trash on moving day. Turned it on and of course it had the ROOD.

My Fix

Pretty smooth. Follow the guides on this site and you will be in good hands. Just take your time and have a good working space.

My Advice

The most difficult and tedious part was definitely cleaning the old thermal paste off the CPU/GPU. Use 91% IPA lots of cloth and TAKE YOUR TIME. That part alone took 30-45 minutes.
