Matt,

Your 360 will get the rrod again.  I highly suggest you not do the towel trick or the overheating trick.

When it does break again (and I guarantee you it will), bring it to a professional to get it reflown with a real reflow station + preheater.  Stay away from the quacks who use heatguns and electric griddles/hot plates.

A reball with leaded solder will be the best option as it's the longest-lasting repair, but it can be expensive (around $60 on craigslist).
