I soldered everything related to a CR4 install on just fine except the NAND-X, so I went back and tried to re-do the job. I ended up putting a bit too much solder on, so all the points connected in one big bubble. I cleaned it up the best I could, pulled it off, and was going to re-solder it but saw this:

Did I kill it? Or should I clean it up and try again?

It hurts to look at ;_;

Clean it really REALLY GOOD!
Then make a very detailed picture of the points.
If it's fucked then you got to scrape traces to dump the NAND.

Edit:
Did you turn on the 360?
Did you smelled electricity?
Did the 360 turn on properly?

Here's how she looks now:

Sorry about the blurry quality, but my phone doesn't want to take clear photos up close. It looks a lot better now, and the burned parts are just solder burned onto the mobo, so I don't think it's that bad.

I haven't turned the 360 on yet, is there any way to do it with just the bare mobo exposed?

It's hard to tell when it's blurry.

Well you can bite the bullet and test it.
Just hook up the AV + power + DVD + HDD + RF board and power it on.

It powered up just fine, no burning smell, so I went ahead with soldering it back on, and I'm getting this error when I try to read the NAND:

Checking Files
Finished Checking Files
Version: 10
Flash Config: 0x00000000
Can not Continue

I'm guessing it's the NAND-X still not being soldered properly?

    @BigOnYa,
    I don't listen? What didn't I listen at? I just want to know all the possible risks on that part
  • A @ ATEMVEGETA:
    Hayato even said it's dangerous to backup the save files to CFW
  • A @ ATEMVEGETA:
    how is this dangerous? A ton of people did this it's the most common thing to do with CFW

    @BigOnYa, Man, first of all thanks for your willing to help, much appreciated. But, it's not that I "don't want to listen", rather than I need soemone to EXPLAIN to me how and why all these are risky.

    For example, HOW is is risky to get banned if you extract the save files to the CFW?
  • A @ ATEMVEGETA:
    isn't this proccess be done while you're offline?
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    We are not Nintendo, so we don't know exactly how/why/when they ban, but better to stay on the safe side and not do shady stuff, if you don't want to be banned. Hayato is one of the most knowledgeable ones here on the subject and I believe what he says.

    @BigOnYa, Yes ofc we don't know how Nintendo bans work, but if there are situations where a lot of people have tried safely then we can at least assume that this path is pretty much safe. To say don't try anything homebrew relative just to be safe forever is the easiest thing to say to someone. What I am trying to figure out here is with which cases and what actions got most of the people their bans for.
