    I always use IDE cable when I'm modding, it's cheap, readily available and easy to use. In terms of desoldering, you definately at least one of those things [​IMG] I personally use an electric desoldering pump, but braid works just as well

    I wouldn't advise that, because the solder seems to stick to (or melt) many things it touches. You'd likely end up with a solder short (someone i know bricked his wii that way installing a modchip)... Also, most solder contains lead, so a spoon you eat with wouldn't be a good idea. Disposable plastic ones will melt.

    Braid is typically cheap anyway.
