There is a thing called the wet towel trick, but it melts your solder within the Xbox, which renders your warranty void.

Search YouTube for information.

Microsoft will check the Firmware version, see it is Flashed and not do a thing.

If it is Flashed, you could try restoring the firmware an try the flash again but i'm pretty sure you are screwed
