Actually, I found Divineo to be the worst place. I ended up paying $70 for my chip, plus $45 shipping. When it arrived it was marked shipping payment on arrival, then I had customs on top of it. At the end of the whole thing I ended up paying £160 for a modchip I could have bought from Gamefreax.de...

I recommended Saa3 did a similar thing, but actually build it into the case rather than just sticking in like it is.

GameTag is BORING!!! You are paying someone to play roms online... Phantom is looking to do the same? Apparently they don't know zSnes and DGEN and MAME...they wanna risk losing money, that is their peragative. If I donated money to them to make the console, I would be pissed and demand that money ...

2 more holes left that wont desolder... a few that still have a little solder blockage preventing wire going through it.

EDIT: Started soldering in wires.. It's a big puzzle. I accidently ripped up another trace on the DVD unit so I need to find an alternative source to solder it to now.

Yes, and Maplins don't have desoldering irons, they have desoldering pumps, one of which I bought from Maplin and was pretty expensive. Still not doing the trick though..

No progress, I'm still desoldering these holes. They're too small for any kind of real sucking.

No RadioShack in the UK.

Get XenoGC. All it does is boot games, but it does a great job of it and is incredibly cheap and simple to install.

If you're looking for functionality over bootability, get Qoob Pro. It's cheap and lets you customise your background and boot files from it's USB flash.

That site is fanboyish crap. For a start, when you make a screenshot twice the size, it's going to pixelate and look crappy. And they also missed out Touch screen and Stereo jack on Inputs / Outputs to make the DS look featureless. It has a GBA port as an expansion slot. And the PSP has had way more...

Yeah cost is another factor why I'm using an external pack along with weight. Since I've already got some batteries, despite being large, they work, so I might aswell stick to them and just make the case smaller like I had planned. it gives me a chance to fix some of the impurities anyway.

Costs? sizes for Li-poly / ions? Pro's and cons of using them?

Would I have room to fit them in the cavity on the left of the picture?

Not quite. I'd need to bulk up to fit the batteries in, that section is too thin for batteries.

I've decided to revisit my handheld Gamecube whilst I'm bored of trying to desolder dozens of holes. http://img144.imageshack.us/img144/7205/hgccutgh0.jpg As you can see, there's a big empty cavity below the Gamecube. This was so I could use the original handle on the case as a stand, but now I've d...

Yeah UK. No idea if there's a Radio Shack, but I haven't got one local if UK does have Radio Shack...

You might be interested in my Gamecube Micro project whilst you're doing this mod. My target size is 11 x 12 x 5cm which it is at the moment.

The nearest hardware store which sells desoldering irons is about 10 mile away, (a long way with no car) and they sell them for £50.

I bought a solder sucker and a soldering iron for much less than that.

Recommend any online stores?

braid doesn't get the crap out the holes.
