i suggest the bottom side D0 if you are refurbishing your install.
the top-side D0 has a layer of laminate that most people neglect to prepare for soldering.
never use the top-side D0...that's my advice.
check out my duoX2 tutorials (links in sig) to see the proper way of doing the D0.
Yeah I had already soldered it to the bottom side d0, I tried to use the top but it failed.
Surprisingly I fixed the problem, after nearly breaking 3 or 4 traces (I honestly cannot believe I didn't break them, they look like shit!) I decided to try to solder the d0 straight to ground, it worked. It's pretty destroyed around the top and bottom d0 on my xbox now though, I think that my flux is expired or it was just shit to begin with, I sat there forever trying to get the wire to stick to the board and subsequently it now looks pretty burned up.
Nonetheless the xbox is now working correctly and that's all I could ever ask for.
Thanks for the help litspliff, it's truly appreciated.
