  1. The other answerer is right.

    The towel trick is a gimmick. The RROD is caused by your system overheating and the parts melting. By doing the towel trick, you’re only melting the parts even more, just screwing over your 360 more and more every time you do it.

  2. DO NOT DO THE TOWEL TRICK! Email me at [email is not allowed] and I’ll walk you through step by step on how to fix your xbox.

  3. you are KILLING your xbox. you are severely overheating it. DO NOT do the towel trick. you will break it beyond repair. if it is not already.
