    Title..
    I havent got mine yet but it would be interesting to know if someone has got their 360 repaired even though the warranty is void because of it being flashed and wrent banned from live when they recieved it, only in the uk guys as the us seem to be more lucky with everything :)

    im from uk, mine had RROD,flashed samsung drive, sent it to ms last 30/07/07, returned after 20 days brand new with manuf.date 08/07 but with benq hard drive (better). dont worry ms will replace it brand new.
    p.s.
    btw the new 360 they gave got the new and improve heat sink so no worries of overheating and RROD...i hope.

    so lucky we pay like twice as much for the console lol.

    i was about to send mine in as the USB's are dead and the laser seems to be on its way out...

    i know people have done it. im just going to revert my firmware to original and make sure my warranty sticker is where i found it... If they wanted to ban me i woudnt need to send it to them for it to happen

    My son had ring of death sent it for repair it was already flashed it came back flashed and he is still not banned from XBL

    i sent mine back it was flashed they sent it back repaired unflashed and banned from XBL

    it depends on the repair my DVD drive was knackered but on my sons it was his motherboard so they didnt touch his DVD drive.

    mine has gone back for the second time as again i got ROD but this time its motherboard so should come back still flashed

    I know of four machines that were flashed and have been sent back to MS for repair. Each one had their firmware restored to stock firmware and a good sticker re-applied to them. One was banned.
    All 4 came back no problems, the banned one came back as a new machine and a happy owner as he is now un-banned !

    You can play xbox 1 games on a 360, but you must have a hard drive in order for the games to work.,
