As long as you cool it properly now it should be just fine. If it's working right now there isn't much point to reballing it.

TBH its not permanent, unless your console is a warrior lol. The first 20-30 Xbox's I heatgunned all worked perfectly for long periods of time. BUt now as I'm getting xbox's that have been fixed before and I reflow them, it only works for a couple months or a couple weeks. In all honesty it just depends on whether your console wants to work or not lol.

If it fails again you should get it reballed. Until then though it should be fine. I wouldn't heatgun it more than once to be honest.

Re-flow is not permanent fix and if you do it again make sure you watch the temps you are heating the chip up to and if you can use some liquid flux it will help with the end results. I use a thermal coupler to monitor the temps and you should preheat the motherboard as well so it doesn't flex while heating the chip. If you have not read much about the melting point of non-leaded solder its at 220c and to get a proper re-flow you need to hit that point. Leaded solders melting point is at 180c and if you get it re-balled that is what they will use. Its what I use when doing mine.

Re-ball- Send it to someone to get it done because it takes more than the household tool box. I have done a lot of re-balls and they do have a better result than a re-flow. They take more time and will cost a little bit to be done.
