Not sure if this is a joke topic, but YLOD is pretty much impossible to fix for any decent period of time, even with a decent reball it will still eventually break again, getting worse each time.
Although not as prevalent as the RROD, it's far, far worse.
Transferring old data to new PS3 now. It's humorous that people think I'm joking. But that's their problem, not mine.
It's not so much that people think you are joking, as the hair dryer trick is known to work, it's just that we know it won't last very long. Shouldn't matter too much if you are transferring your data over though, as long as it doesn't break before it's done.
