I cannot believe how badly I failed, and how hard this really is. How could any normal person modify an xbox in such raw, risky fashions? How is there any technological sense in trying to apply molten metal to microscopic points of the console's internal circuitry? I cannot conceive it. I tried it, croaked, and I still cannot conceive it.
What did I do wrong? I heated my soldering iron, and touched the spring-shaped solder to the tip of the hot, metal rod. The solder melted, and actually started dripping down the rod itself, so I tried to even out the molten solder around the tip by smearing it with the unmelted solder itself. A dumb move, because even more solder melted onto the iron's tip. Now I had a massive glob of liquifying metal running town the iron's rod, when the tip used for the soldering barely had any on it at all. I tried to decide if I should go for it, and realized the miniscule LPC hole did not match the size of the huge, clumsy glob of solder I now had. It started smoking too much, more so than I figured was safe, and the entire iron was turning brown for some reason. I had no clue if it was a fire hazard or not but I couldn't take chances. I was risking my Xbox, as well as my entire f*cking dormatory. I backed out like a coward and couldn't stop shaking for 10 minutes. How sad am I? Really? I don't deserve to have a modded box.
My hands are still shivering. I'm looking at my swollen, browned, deformed iron that's finally cooled. I think I ruined it. My motherboard is completely disconnected, and it took too long to take it out to put it back without having modded it. I'll have to beg my freind to do this for me once I go back into town. Man, I really want this but... sigh... I need to go to sleep.
