How to REALLY Repair Your Xbox 360

This is an excellent tip, and having gone through the Microsoft Xbox support channel twice (Xbox support disaster #1, Xbox terrible support #2 and a friend) and wanting to die before I do it again, a very applicable point (oh yea, and also cause their hardware has a 30% failure rate). 1.
