Recent update completely bricked my xbox.

A couple days ago, I turned on my xbox to play Red Dead Redemption, as I had done just the other night, and I noticed I had an update to install. The update downloaded, and when my xbox restarted, I immediately got RROD. I do NOT have the dvd hardware for which the firmware update has been causing problems. I never had a problem with this particular unit in the past, and I find it to be more than coincidence that the update that has caused so much trouble actually totaled my xbox. It's enough of a stretch for me to believe it isn't a little too convenient that my three year warranty JUST expired, but I refuse to believe my xbox just coincidentally had hardware failure DURING the update, when it had given no previous signs or symptoms of despair. I understand Microsoft is checking some code over the network to determine whether people are eligible for a new unit because of the firmware disaster, but is there any hope for my particular case? I cannot and refuse to pay $100+ for microsoft to repair my xbox when, in all likelihood, they broke it in the first place.

Ya, My 360 slim worked great, I had it for about 5months with 0 problems. Then i got the update on the 19th and it worked great when i turned it off, But when i turned it on in the morning (The 20th) The light on the power supply would turnd red. So i thought nothing about it so i just bought a new power supply and the power supply light still turns red when i try to turn on my 360. And after hearing about all these problem with this new update, I would have to say that the update bricked my 360. So now it's on it's way to the repair center.

Never buy one on Ebay ever unless your intentions are to smash it to bits once you get it.

I would advise you to consider clearing the console's cache and attempting to download any updates again. This may be your best bet without having to buy a new hard drive. Hope this helps.
