Re: Soldering Iron?

Cheers for all the help guys! as always very much appreciated ;)

I think I will go for that one, tips are reasonably priced and you can buy a complete replacement iron for £11

I dont do much soldering really, xbox bits now and then, bit of repair work etc so should be fine

Soldering Iron?

Can anyone recommend a half decent soldering iron?

I dont really need a hugely expensive Weller outfit, but something that will do work on xbox and smaller stuff such as busted memory sticks would be handy...

Pointers appreciated ;)

Re: XBMC4XBOX360 Sort of..

Hats off to the coding, very impressive, my only thoughts is wouldn't you just use Plex? its based on XBMC code and Elan is an ex dev from those days..... I'm not really a fan but it is easier? :?

Re: Apple boys?

"Apple cant really say your device is too old buy a new one when you try to install an app" Hmmmmm.... you sure about that? ;) Apple want you to buy a new device every year! thats why they stop iOS upgrades for older kit. Aparently iPad 2 has already had features removed so its days are numbered yet...

Re: Apple boys?

Hmmmm I thought it was more iOS related.... my motorola Xoom still runs the latest BBC iPlayer just fine and is the same age as a gen 1 iPad and probably has a less compatable CPU the Tegra 2.... yet the iPad and iPod wont even install the app, And thats the same for everything from Angry birds to T...

Re: Xbox 1.4ghz upgrade finally done!

Yep I have the N64 1Ghz/128mb Xbox - the work looks like it came from the factory like it! :D

I'd be interested in the 1.4Ghz box if the half speed switch can be made to function correctly and save me having to patch games ;)

Cheers fellas! Yeah the Samsung's do keep appearing when I start looking... :? seem to have a bit of everything going for them.

Android tablet?

Hello guys, I was stuck deciding on a new tablet so just thought I'd ask what people have on here... I've always bough reasonably cheap tablets, Hisense 8" and Refurb'd Nexus 7 are my current drivers, but I was thinking of something a little more high end for my next one... I got some cash for a few...

Re: Xbox 1.4ghz upgrade finally done!

Hows it coming on N64? any news on the half speed switch?

If you can get that working, would it eliminate the need to patch games?

Re: Fallout 4

Top stuff! - I haven't switched FO4 on for a while... it was getting a bit repetitive... after I had the XO-1 power armor and a fully tricked out combat shotgun I could basically kick everythings ass with ease.... 8-)
