Hi all!

Been crusing the forums for a while - and now I need some (moral) support.

Had my 360 E Corona all setup and nice and dandy, had some NAND issues that I resolved and all worked fine. Aurora on, the works - all good.

Then I hit the mainboard with my elbow and managed to get the PLL ripped. With the pad. Yes, the really small one over at C5R3.

Tried to resolder it by going deeper, but the solder won't stick no matter how much flux I throw at it. And after 3 long hours of frustration I tried it out and got a red-ring flashing. Noticed this morning that I havent even mounted the cooler on properly so that might explain it. But the issue is still there - the bastard won't stick. And now the hole is deeper then that of a pornstar and I have copper exposed, but it-wont-stick (goddamnit). I think I might have gone to deep.

Yes I'm a muppet.

What are my options now?

  • Are there other vias I can connect to for the same functionality as C5R3? I tried to checkout the schematics, but was just way to tired.
  • Go for RGH 2 or any other glitch?
  • Not put more time in it and get another one for 20 bucks?

Thanks for all your help! Feel free to share your f-ups to make me feel better.

Well unfortunately there is no alternative to the PLL point on slims, so alternatively you could get an ace v3 and do s-rgh if you wanted but rgh1.2 and rgh3 are out of the questions since they both require pll.
