    I lost all faith in my Elite after it RROD'd & haven't used it since it came back from its little holiday. Keep meaning to trade it in at Game or Gamestation.

    I would call them back and just explain that as you got off the phone and you tried it again you got the RROD ( with some tweaks as above )

    Amatures, you just wrap it in a towl so that it covers the vents, turn it on and start playing a game or simply leave it running. This leave the seals intact and will happily allow the CPU/GPU to massivly exceed their heat thresholds causing a RROD.
