Had a friend over ended up getting wasted and he pissed in my Xbox. The board is pretty corroded and nasty. But the hd looks fine and what I would like to know is there a way to get game data off this hd and transfer it to my new Xbox one S? I was at 80% in gta 5 and I really don't want to start over.

He doesn't know when to stop drinking. One time he took a shit in my bathroom and completely missed the toiled then tried to clean it up with one of his socks. But just ended up smearing shit all over the floor.

That model has a metal cover with a gasket, no way piss makes it all over the board like that. This is fake news. Yes, the sides are open, but even then it would take a direct, intentional piss to evenly dispense urine to every part of the board, and you would have to adjust the angle during and after urination to do so.

There's a giant fan for the CPU under that fan is the CPU and cooling fins. There is absolutely nothing stopping liquid from entering the vent on top going through the fan then through the cooling fins on the cpu. It's absolutely positive.

You could at least have bathed the whole thing in isopropyl alcohol and given it a good scrub or ultrasonic cleansing to see if it still works.

Anyway, you fucking fairy. Connect the old drive to your computer internally or externally, then do the same with the new drive. Get a linux live cd and use the "dd" command in a terminal window to make an exact copy from the old drive to the new (google how to use that command), assuming both drives have the same capacity.

Whatever you do, DON'T TURN IT ON like that.

Remove the motherboard, and
10: let it sit in DISTILLED water for a while (like days).
Agitate the water.
Then do it again with fresh DISTILLED water.

Videotape the above process. Save the piss-water for when your friend comes over and gets thirsty. After friend has consumed all the piss-water send him the video of you collecting it.

Anyway, that will dissolve the (conductive) minerals and salts in the water. Those minerals got under the BGAs so it will take a while to get it out.

Then, let it DRY completely! I mean *completely* Wait days if you need to. Keep it warm if you need to. Use a fan. Wash it with 99.9% isopropyl alcohol if you're in a hurry.

Distilled water is only slightly conductive, but even so it's not a good idea for anything to be even slightly damp.

Inspect board, to confirm that it looks absolutely mint and there is no residue whatsoever. If there is, GOTO 10.

Only once you are satisfied that the thing is absolutely clean of any minerals and water, then put the mobo back in and try it.

doesnt that shit get backed up online anyway?

The best way was already mentioned. remove hardrive, buy usb to sata or what ever version hdd it is and copy data to a pc then to a flash drive that you can then load back on to your new xbox.

OR GROW THE FUCK UP and do something bettet with your time.

lots of people talking out of their asses! microsoft takes great pains to make this sort of thing not work. they encrypt stuff, they modify the HDD's firmware so it only unlocks on the original xbox machine. with every new model, they make it tougher to access by outsiders. and they ban anyone they think is fooling around where they shouldn't.

only people with modded machines are free to copy stuff.

>> No.1303640

no some of that was good business sense. the original xbox 360s only worked with a limited number of hard drive types for good reason. people try to swap out parts like that, their chinkypoo discount or secondhand drive craps out then it doesnt boot. then they have to argue with the customer over why their 3rd party part isnt covered by warranty.

consoles are sold at a loss. they are a DRM box. the whole idea is that you buy games to play on them so part of that business model is making them only able to play games you didnt just pirate on the DRM box they just lost money on giving it to you.

t. worked in a computer store
I have terrible stories from this time.
>someone buys a new computer
>its too slow
>they take it to another computer store to have them "upgrade it"
>customer comes back complaining about how they had to spend all this extra money on it to make it faster
>lolwut
>open it up
>original 230w HP power supply is blown
>the guy gutted their computer, replacing the motherboard, cpu and installed a graphics card.
>left the OEM psu in the case
>overloaded it
>customer proceeds to complain about how its our fault

>old lady brings in her sons XBOX
>RROD
>she says its been getting hot
>she likes covering it with a blanket because she doesnt like the noise

>notice a pattern with the RROD
>customers all say they basically just keep it in a sealed box, drawer or cabinet with no ventilation

Here's how you fix this:
1. Kick 'friends' ass severely for being extreme dumfuck
2. Extract money from him to replace xbox
3. Never speak to 'friend' again because he's a severe fuckup
Problem solved.
