    Hi all.

    at the moment i am making an hard mod on my 3ds so i can place a nand backup back..

    everything is going well and i have soldered 3 of the 4 cables correctly.

    but the last 1 doesnt want to get soldered to the contact point (c106 aka the clk point)

    I use the one on the back of the mobo since im a lil scared of breaking the flash card since i still need it for my downgrsde process.

    please some advice.

    Wesley

    Hey, can you tell me how to soldier that c106 ? I have the same problem using very thin tin with flux (in paste), but the tin refuses to adhere to the c106...

    I think k just had luck to get it to the right port. If i were you i would just pay any soldering specialist a few bucks to do it for you, saves a lot of time and fail attempts i thinks :)

    Yes, I agree. Yesterday I've tried it on a electronic's store in my town, but when they say the (astonishing) tiny size of the hole, they recommended me going to another place, so I'll go there as soon as I could.

    Thanks !

    When solder doesn't stick i usually just use the tip of a scalpel and scratch the copper a little bit, also expose a bit of the track when available, never fails.
