    I actually just got an update that it moved to Jamaica, New York. Has anybody else ordered from sxflashcard? Does anyone know how long it took to get it from there?

    So, check your local postcode number here: http://parcelsapp.com/en/tracking

    Not sure, but it looks like a 3rd party shipper (Pitney Bowes) is in-between Yanwen and USPS. And they have pretty bad reviews online. DHL or FedEx is probably a better choice than the standard shipping.

    Ok that's interesting, cause I had that location on my tracking initially and is right near JFK airport which is also I believe is where customs is located in Jamaica NY. Also IfI ordered from sxflashcard. Just curious do you live on the east coast or west?

    I think v1 is easier because of its larger pads and wiuthout concerning about touching other capacitors

    Why most people use a gel-based flux instead a waterbase like JBC's?

    Isn't this suitable?

    I used a water based flux. Chemtronics do a “no clean” flux pen which you press down on to dispense. Brilliant stuff and best suited for SMD soldering.

    Despite the no clean claim, the solder I used contained flux too so to clean that off the board, I used Electrolubes Fluxclene. Great stuff and quick drying too. Not conductive and quick drying! Used this also to clean off thermal paste.

    I thought about as well until i realizes that the image on the videos is been recorded with a microscope video camra that has a lot of zoom , and in my hand , and can berly see the silver parts of the capacitors

    Correct, but 4 are tiny enough that'll be easy to bridge and make ya desoldier 4 times over

    A shop with the word mods at the end of their name doesnt install mod chips, go figure :blink:

    with the lite you have more solder points but it literally pads to pads you align them and apply solder its actually easier than the smds lol

    im annoyed that i found better solder in my stash that looks way cleaner than my initial install.
    not touching my board as it works fine
    just means everyone else i do the job for has a better application than me T_T

    I think most guys who could do that are still afraid to mod the console, because it is something new. I found out a lot about unlocking Nintendo 3ds(and nintendo switch) with the local Pokémon Community(I'm from Asunción, Paraguay), since having competitive pokemons quickly requires having an unlocked console(most of the time). Maybe if you could contact them, they might help you out.
