I’ve had a lot of comments on my post about my Broken Xbox 360 – Flashing Red Ring of Light (RoL) and there have been quite a few people who have been crazy enough to try the “Blanket Trick” in order to fix their Xbox disregarding the potential this has to fry the Xbox 360 and render it useless.
Basically, what the “Blanket Trick” does is it essentially causes your Xbox to overheat. The overheating of the Xbox causes a faulty solder connection to heat up enough in order to reconnect itself. Crazy, but true. It seems like there have been a lot of people who have had good results with this technique to solve the red ring of light problem on the Xbox 360. I’m curious to hear all of your stories. Is there anybody out there who has absolutely fried their Xbox by doing this? Let us know!!!
