    Well, UPS tells me that mine will arrive on 6th February. I can't wait. I'm off to buy a new soldering iron (30W) over the weekend and some lead free silver solder (1mm). Oh yes, also on the list are a Heatsinc, a new DVDRW+- and a triwing attachment for my screwdriver.

    Can't wait!

    I've been told its better to use a 15W soldering iron for soldering modchips, I have a 26W one, and it was ok to solder but I guess 15W would be perfect

    I ordered a Wiinja from PTchip some days ago, but they are only dispatching them on the 5th.

    I just pre-ordered 3 Cyclowiz chips from modchipman. There is no shipping date on their site. It simply says: "CYCLO-WIZ IS ON PREORDER. PLEASE CHECK WWW.TEAMCYCLOPS.COM FOR THE ETA. YOUR CARD WILL BE CHARGED AT CHECKOUT FOR THE PREORDER. PREORDERS WILL SHIP FIRST!!!" I have ordered from them before and had a good experience. I am hoping to get this chip by middle of the month. I wish team cyclops would update their site.

    According to the tracking, ours should be there by tomorrow (Feb. 2nd) or at worst the day after (Feb 3rd)

    We had expected it earlier but we were told that there was a good reason for the delay. We'll see.

    Anyone a first-time solderer? If I was, I'd be scared as hell.

    I'm waiting until region-free is cracked/region free backups are playable.

    Solderless solution would be nice, too

    Not a first-time solderer, but hopefully a first-time-successful-mod [​IMG]

    Ruined a PSOne a few years back because my iron was too hot and I lifted a tansistor off its pad [​IMG]

    At least we all know to use 15W-30W

    This would be my first time solder, but i didn't order the modchip yet...I'm always a bit of a skeptic until proven wrong (not by maxconsole however).
