Oh well, I have a more reliable system with a blu ray player and 120 GB hard drive. I like xbox but I couldn't deal with it anymore. Feel free to add me guys, though my games will be most likely mw2, socom, nhl 10 in the future and possibly MAG.
plus free PSN, bluetooth, etc... Bad thing is, you can't mod/hack PS3 - like the ridiculously exploitable 360, lol - I just JTAG'd an old XBOX 360 I had laying around (I repair them as a side job) that wasn't working (didn't have a valid DVD rom) now I have every live arcade game ever made, and 50 of the latest games all running off of a 1.5 TB external drive! lol, F*ck you M$!
haha thats crazy, u helped me with a bunch of stuff on my old xbox's. Now i have two that have E74 that i'm tired of ****ing with. Hey if you wanna buy some broken 360's, i got two!
The only thing that sucks on PS3 is i play NHL 10 and the voice chat is terrible on the PS3 version. It's very frustrating. The menu's are better in 360 too, but i'm liking the PS3 a lot, i just wish they had the party chat feature like Xbox added.
The E74 error is a hard one man, I've only been able to fix one out of the three I'm come across. It's all about putting pressure on the ana/hana chip, I believe:
here is one guide:http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?showtopic=646900
I remember one guide I used that used pennies to apply pressure to the ana/hana chip, that one seemed pretty good.
I use the llamma forums more than XBS, and they are really against the penny tricks for anything. I guess it eventually causes massive warpage. Most of their fixes involve reflowing and using a hybrid xclamp fix, all of which would be cool to try, but i don't have the desire to do that much. I can get the E74 going for about a month, by baking the motherboard and doing the xclamp, but it eventually goes out again.
The pennies are only used to apply pressure to the ana/hana chip - for some reason this is the only real fix for it, I'm not referring to using the pennies as some imaginary headsink on the ram chips - that's just crazy talk.
I use XBS and afterdawn.com - afterdawn is great for everything related to consoles, pirating, home theaters, computers, etc and I always get quick responses there. the reason I like XBS is because they were some of the first ones on the scene and most every tutorial/guide has been posted there, but the mods are Nazis!
The team hybird fix is the best, it seems like a lot more work but it really isn't and for many reasons like the shams around the GPU and CPU and sanding down the standoffs it is much more thorough. I started with the llama guide and then I realized that basically everything there was just copy and pasted from XBS and their RRoD fix isn't nearly as thorough.
I haven't got into the re-flowing yet - I probably should since I have about 3 360s laying around that are still RRoD. I just don't want to buy a heat gun and the guide's I've seen use nice heat guns and electric griddles. The hair dryers just seem like a was of time to me.
