Everyone one has different opinions !!
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... wink.gif

You don't have to take the solder out...

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

??????????????

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? laugh.gif

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

well, if you insist, you can try to rest the chip on the points,

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

good luck

let's not forget that when solderless mods first came out there were only xbox's with filled lpc holes.

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

im going to have to try and put the chip so it just about touches the solder in the holes as my soldering iron cannot reach them holes as the tip is too big i wont be able to solder im afraid

thats what I said,

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!
