Just installed an Xecuter 2.3b Lite and getting FRAGs w/ the modchip enabled. My problem is most likely cold solder joints.
My question is this: how do you avoid those? I'm a newbie at soldering but have a good eye and a steady hand. Bought a new 15-watt soldering iron, some 0.32" Rosin Core Solder and some Desoldering Braid. I touch the soldering iron to the tip of the pin, apply the solder to the base, and it all balls up; doesn't seep down into the "hole". I've even "tinned" the soldering iron.
What the heck am I doing wrong? Should I have bought some flux and put some down in the holes?
