I removed the X3 solder-less adapter but I don't remember in which hole should the wire go into. I have been looking for install guide but only found the solder guide which doens't show this part. Would anyone still have the solder-less guide?

So I managed to find the hole were the pin hair goes but my chip acts ups. It will load sometimes and sometimes it wont, I have to push down on it or have something weighing it down so that it can boot correctly. This mod chip as always given me problems this way.(X3 CE) Would anyone know if I solder the pin hearder in place of the solder-less adapter if it will boot normally or would I have to bios flash the chip again?

Always prefer pin header install as the solderless adapters are so touchy.

The console should boot the modchip BIOS after pin header and D0 connection (that spring wire/finger on the solderless adapter) are made. You will not have to reflash the modchip. The data doesn't disappear from the chip based upon the installation method used to connect it to the LPC Debug port.
