too much to say for anyone to want to type out. remember to not get it too hot, u could ruin the board, ummm, dont do it if u dont think u can, maybe get a bread board and try hooking up a led (easy instructions all over the net) so you can get a feel for it becuase it all comes down to experience with this skill. equipment is going to pretty much be the same all over, people might have their preferences but there really isnt too much difference between them. i got mine at a flea market for really cheap and it works fine for me.

what I recomend purchasing if your going to attemp to solder in your own chip on the 1.6mobo.

15Watt thin tip soldering pencil
.32 solder
flux
desolder braid
32gage wire
wire strippers
electrical tape

some things on the list are optional. Now I hope you look over 1.6 guides and are confident you can do that. If you know you cant then follow the url in my signature those guys do a amazing job. But if your set on your self doing the install you really should practive a lot before you touch your xbox. Especially since it's a 1.6
