    Most mobile phone repair shops just swap the pieces instead of soldering nothing, it's normal. I wouldn't do such a risky job

    You have to find shops that do it because they say they do it

    Got my SX Core the other day, except I realized I got the hands of a recovering meth addict and nothing can still these guys.

    So now I am calling around to old modchip installers the transitioned to phone repair, basically the ones who can repair cell phone ports that are soldered on are probably the best bet, or ones with modz at the end of their name.. lol

    For some reason these seem to have been sent from Los Angeles, CA to Jamaica, NY. Now I guess they have to move back across the US after going through a 3rd party shipper.

    Y think is no especially difficult if you have appropiate soldering tools. I had a thin diameter tin (Sn+Pb), a thin soldering iron tip I ordered and patience

    US $46.50 when you actually select it

    Most these stores will have pros and cores and the pro being cheaper of course.

    Do you guys just order from AliExpress or do you contact the seller first? What's the process exactly?

    I just ordered mine. There were few sellers posted here but none of them sells it any more. As mentioned few times Ali has good buyer protection in case things go wrong and you won't get your goods so I guess no brainer? I've ordered mine on 17th with regular cheap shipping and it's now being sent to my local post office so I expect it before weekend. Can already track it with UK royal mail tracking service. I'll post a pic when it arrives. Still worried of what's inside the package - SX Core or just couple of AA batteries :P

    if you are using SX Core or SX Lite, do NOT use Tinfoil's Incognito feature. This will cause a brick and we're not sure it's even reversable. For those that bricked their units with ChoiDujourNX, sit tight. We have a solution in the works.

    Good thing I don’t plan on using either of those tools.

    So the sx core is very easy to install if you take your time and have a good magnifying glass/lamp. I have never done micro soldering before, but got mine in just fine!

    Got my chip today.

    Looks like v1 is easy enough for me, but v2 seems way trickier.
