I'm pretty sure the towel trick will continue to work for quite some time, you're just delaying the inevitable. From what I've read, it's worked 10, 15+ times for some people.

For those asking: do a search on youtube or google for "towel trick xbox 360" and you should find some more information. It's hardly a fix, but like the OP mentioned, it will work if you don't have a warranty on it.

Guys, the towel trick is only a temporary solution. You may as well just get it repaired or buy a new 360.

Yeah my 360 RRO'D the last week of August, so I toweled it and it worked.

2 Weeks later in bricked again so I did it. This time it only worked for around a week before Bricking. After that it only worked by days then hours before I needed to do the trick again. The solution is only tempoary, you're better sending it off now before Fable II and GoW etc come out.

It's like you looked into my past lol.
I found that the trick continued to work for around 3 weeks at which point the box was unrevivable. I was thinking try and force 3RRoD instead of the 1 but I don't have any clue how so I was left with 2 choices, new 360 or call MS again. Now I have a 2008 manufactured 360 and a 280 paperweight. Thinking I might just sell the paperweight for whatever I can get as it's useless to me now.

Call up MS and pay the $25 to get the warranty for it and get it repaired the right way so you (in theory anyways) won't have to continually wrap it up in a towel every time.
