right so i was getting annoyed with the process of relocating my expansion pak so then i decided to find an easier way... so after 20 mins. i found out that on the board you dont have to put a wire on every strip there are little holes in behind some of the strips that you can put the wire to directly so when your soldering the wires they are not so close( im almost done and its been about 30 mins.) so here is a visual image with my not so great art work :P :

Don't try to relocate the cartridge slot this time. Just let it stay and work around it.

relocating the cart slot is relatively easy even for noob solderers

the expansion however is where i believe he fudged up

so you relocated the hardest thing on the board, which takes extreme care and precision, and heaps of double checking
and you fried the n64 by

you need at least 7.5v to power the thing, or 7.4v. There is like a THIS CHARGER POWERS EVERYTHING charger on the website. It shouldn't be that hard to find.

cool and i just bought a new cordless portable soldering iron that heats up in less than 10 seconds its the best soldering iron a geek can have :P the only down side is that it heats up super hot (too like 1050 F ) so u cant use it for a long time
