I have a Globe 360 ordered, but haven't gotten it yet.
Not completely sure, but logic would think this should work. Solder points on the SST chip(after epoxy removal) are much easier, after examining the board. There are 2 points which I am unclear about.

You are exactly right in fact thats how I did it. Forget about soldering on the MT1359 controller IC. I'm a pro and I could't do that without a microscope and superfine RF solder Iron. I don't know why the instructions show that method. I removed the epoxy with a heat gun and soldered D0 - D6 on the SST firmware chip. I saw another guy here scrap the traces and soldered to them. That glue really stinks when melting. Good job updating the picture Biosyntrix. I'm really really dissappointed in the lack off support from the makers of this Globe 360.

Heres a pic letting you see how long the wires should be. This chip will not fit inside the dvd case so you need to mount it on the side of the frame next to the DVD drive. This is a samsung drive that I scraped off the epoxy in order to make soldering much easier

The D1 connection is the pin to the left of the D2 connection on the SST chip. I verified this with a ohm meter. As far as removing the epoxy goes I'm pretty clueless. I used a 12 watt soldering pencil and it works good at melting / scraping the epoxy away from the pins on the SST chip. The other areas on the board I used solder wick on the lands and worked it back & forth while heating it with the same 12 watt soldering pencil. This method works but you must be very patient and do a little bit at a time or you'll start lifting traces off the board. I'm sure there is a better way.
Lasly when removing the flat ribbon cables from the connectors on the board you need to be very careful. I ruined the ribbon cable that goes to the laser. The edge connections seperated from the mylar backing. Now I'm waiting for someone to sell me a bricked samsung drive cause no repair parts are available yet.

sorry to be a noob but what does the globe 360 do? I dont have a 360 yet so I havent been paying much attention to 360 modding. If your going to be a dick about it dont even bother responding, I just wanna know what it does....not how or why.
