But since you have a ver 1.0 with filled lpc, and if you plan on using a solderless adaptor...Good luck...
You win some you loose some....
Yeh it will work, but for how long ?????
The best way is to remove the solder and fit a pin header... 100% no dramas with alignment, bad connections etc...

If you do though, get some fine desoldering braid and heat up the hole with it.

|yea well i aint got enough money to get a proper soldering iron for them small holes so ill hav to try my best with the solderless chip|
15 dollars max?

its just i had some money and forgot all about buying the mod chip and blew it on dvds so i asked mny mum and dad an they sed be on ur best behaviour so ill get 1 nxt friday

get a solder sucker (maybe $5 or 6)
and empty the holes
OR, get some solder braid, learn how to use it, and empty the holes
solderless mods require holes!, how else do you expect to get an electrical connection?, brownian motion?
really, its easy to unbung the holes, if you're unsure, get someone who can to do it for you, Go and give the local electronics buff a couple of cans of beer, it'll only take 5 min to unsolder the holes (well, 35 seconds if you're quick ;-)
or, pay someone to install the mod for you and then you wont have to put another post on asking what the components values are of the little bits you've accidentally broken off!.
as for D0, use a little bit of wet 'n dry, or just solder to the alternate d0

heat one of the pins up and melt a small blob of solder onto the pin, kind of holding the soldering iron tip so it just touches the LPC point on the xbox so the solder melts in the hole and meets with the solder you've put onto the pin. Add a bit more solder to give mechanical stability to the joint (very poor practice this, but if you insist)
then do every other joint the same, should only take about 20 min or so, TAKE YOUR TIME
my suggestion, do one pin on one end, then a pin on the opposite end, then work through one by one

it should work fine, although obviously alignment will be easier with holes.

try to add a little more solder to the holes so they're just 'sitting proud' of the surrounding PCB, that'll make things easier!
