Aright, heres the deal. A friend who said "bah" to the fee most charge at modding consoles went against my advice, and tried to mod it himself with limited knowledge. The guy isnt good with computers either, but hey.. like he said.. "how card could it be". Long story short, he came to me a few weeks later after i questioned why i hadnt seen him on live, and about a few new games that were out. "Man, i fucked up. I killed it. Im buying a new console today. Can you mod it?" So i felt sorry for the guy, because yanno damn, sucks to have to replace a 200 dollar unit. Either way, he gave me his borked console as he was going to throw it away. Its a halo edition console, but thing is, when he tried to flash, he didnt store the key. So it returns like "000000 0000000" for the key or whatever. Basically making it useless. Itll turn on, etc etc but wont read discs. I hate having this thing sit around, so what does a console thats broken fetch? Im sure someone would buy it for parts , like the heatsink, the case, the hard drive casing / drive, and the cd drive ( benq ). Should i sell it on Yardsale for parts? IF so how much? I cant post a feeler thread in there so, its going in here. Or, since the market is so fucked and theres not a market for the millions of broken consoles, just keep the case and cd rom and hard drive, trash the rest.
