I am going to RGH my Trinity Console. I saw that you need to have an internal HDD to create a HDDX partition. But I don't have one. Is there any other way to create the HDDX partition? Like on the internal memory (the 4GB one, that only Trinitys have) or on an external HDD?

not possible but since you have an RGH you can put in any 2.5 HDD and should work i would get a 500gb-1tb if you are planning to put a ton of stuff on it. i would go minimum 150gb

My JR Programmer V2 and my Matrix V1 are on the way. I think I will use my HDD from my PS4 since it is dead.

I watched a ton of 'how to solder' videos and also some TWM Guides. I hope I don't mess anything up. It looks easy and hopefully it will be when I get my chips.

Videos looks easy. You must practice.

I know when I tried my jasper v2 install I lifted a pad and once you lift a pad you either have to scratch off the trace and solder to it or find an alternative point. trust me I thought I could do it but that happened and I just let someone more experienced do it (one of my family members) but practice on a few junk boards first is definitely the way to practice for a beginner.

Did it even lift with flux or did you use any flux?

Would you say if I practice like 10 minutes or something like that on a scrapboard, and feel comfortable, I should go on into RGHing the Console? Because I don't own a soldering iron and for this process I'm going to borrow the one my friend owns. I don't want to waste his time practicing on a scrapboard for 30 minutes before I get into the real deal.

sure you can do that also remember don't put it on a very high temp as that will lift a trace if your not careful also use flux

I plan to set the temp on like 300°C - 350°C. Or should I stick to 300°C?

350 should be fine just remember DONT hold the soldering iron on the pad for too long 350 should be safe to for you.

Alright, thank you. I can hold a bit longer on the ground point, because it dissipaits more heat than usual, right?
