    I picked up a jtaged 360 just now no problems and after I used it for 2 hours playing some halo 3, I get a red light with no error message I can still play the game I am in the middle of and get this light I can still restart it and it will go away then comes on again, I am not familiar with the error it's not overheating. I would like to know how to fix it because it's making me nervous a little now.

    It probably have a cold solderjoint under the GPU/CPU/HANA/RAM
    You might be able to reflow it (won't fix it permanently) or reball (permanently)

    I don't think it's the JTAG connection it self (unless it magically shorts somewhere...)

    Oh great I might as well go out and buy a slim then this keeps happening even when it's horizontal (not sure if it makes any difference) not even an hour now.. black screen before the red glowing light.

    It could indicate a failing harddrive.
    If you have a harddrive attached to it.

    Yep, you still have the JTAG, you just make sure the HDD isn't failing.

    Yep, CR4XL is needed + NAND-X (don't think it's a Corona so you don't need a SD R/W kit)
