    Just wanted to ask, i contacted a few repair shops near my area and all of them basically said the same thing, since its a launch 360 and its has the 3 rrod its either not fixable at all, or very very hard to fix and may not work and im better off just buying a new one. i dont think they'd have a reason to lie cause it'd just money loss for them, but just incase they're misinformed, is that true about the console, should i just buy a new one? i did try fixing it myself to save money a while back, with a repair kit i bought from ebay, followed the instructions to a t and it didnt work but its the first time ive ever done something like that, ive never even put my own PC together so i guess i still done something wrong. just wanted to make the topic before i make the decision of buying a new one and throwing this one away or selling for parts i guess. thanks :)

    Either get a new one or get it reballed if you really want to.

    It's not worth fixing a Xenon.

    It's the best to do indeed.

    Xenons are only good to get non banned Keyvaults off off with the RGH (if it's glitching the Xenon lol)
