this is all new to me i firstly got rrod with seeking advise a friend told me how to cure it as it was a overheating issue that i get after a couple of days.so i purchased a xbox repair kit extreme edition to witch i followed the tuition on these forums ive followed it step by step as it illistrates and when i get to the bit where it says about baking the cpu till i get 2 red rings i cant seem to get it to get hot enough to complete the procedure....
is there something im doing wrong or is it a more serious issue than than i think.....

the kit is a temp fix as said, but i have seen people use it in past.

make sure u block any of fan gettin to gpu sink, and put dvd drive in so it makes a closed compartment, should get hot enough, you can also use the fan just on cpu and not gpu, that will get it major hot if left.

Overheating your xbox will do more harm than good, it gets no where need hot enough to "fix" anything plus will probably damage other components in the process. like i said you need it re-flowing or re-balling, otherwise it's just a waste of money if you ask me

The kit won't "fix" all errors anyway. What error are you getting? Maybe it is an overheating issue or maybe not. The error would be good info to tell someone if you plan to have it professionally repaired.

You need to get it professionally repaired matey, re-flowed or re-balled. Those kits are ok for after the proper repair, to keep things cooler.as advised by unleashed1982
