    Why not just send it to Microsoft?

    Because some people don't want to wait ages/don't have a warranty.

    From what I've heard that is just a temporary fix anyway.

    temporary maybe, for how effective its done
    just redose the soldering part of it which is what caused the rings of death

    snore.

    seriously, this method is hopeless.

    "it works, i've done it three times"

    is that to 3 different consoles? or the same one?

    there is only one "almost" permanent fix for the 3RLOD and it
    doesn't involve towels or ovens.

    here:-

    obviously if your warranty is up, try it by all means, you have nothing to
    lose. if still in warranty, be patient and send it back to M$. they are now
    (apparently) ensuring that you get your "own" console back and not some
    grubby snotty nosed oiks who has used his to collect dead skin cells.

    I'm sure there is a cream or something you can get...?

    Oh, you meant for the 360 - my bad.
