Hi, Old school modder here getting back into the scene. I've recently broke out the old SID softmod and updated it to Rocky's and added a 2 TB drive to it. I have an Open Xenium on hand and I believe I will install that on the 1.6 I have running. Looking forward to dusting this hobby back off. Thanks, Screwingates
G'day all! i've recently got myself a soldering iron and am eager to TSOP my 1.1. I've not yet used the specific soldering iron (waiting for a practice kit to arrive in the mail) but i do have some experience with soldering so i generally know what i'm in for. The main issue is that the fear of messing something up and rendering the console useless is immense! I've barely used it as is so as to not wear out the hard drive, so it'd be a shame to have to bin it. What would be the correct method to join the required points. From many of the sources i've seen, the general strat (without using conductive ink or wire) seems to be apply solder to iron apply iron to points and move it around for no more than ~2 seconds pray that the points have been bridged is this correct? would it be a good idea to use flux on the points or would it not really do anything? Cheers!
