Default XBOX 360 Repair

I decided to start tinkering with xboxes, So far, I have fixed the first 2 with red ring of death. Of the ways I have heard. Wrapping them is NOT recomended.
Not sure how long the other fixes will last, But so far so good.

I live in eastern Iowa if you have an xbox that has red ring.

Cost you over $100 to send to microsoft to fix.

2 red lights is usually a easy thing to deal with since it is caused by overheating.

3 Red lights is when you get into the fun stuff. If you haven't already you need to go read up on secondary error codes.

I fixed two of them with 3 red lights caused by thermal cycling cracking the solder on the board under the X Clamp. I used the washer method to reduce the spring tension in the clamp. It worked great for about 2 weeks and then **** the bed again.

This problem has been addressed by Microsoft in the newer versions right? I just ask because i just bought a brand new 360 last month.
