    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:

    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?

    What would be the best way to clean it? I don't want to do more damage than I already did

    Isopropyl alcohol and a solder sucker/soldering debraid.

    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?

    NAND-X isn't soldered on correctly then.

    My uncle is an electrician, so I figure I'll wait til Saturday and let him see if my work is fixable instead of fucking it up worse. I'll post an update then.
