If you see that you mess up on it, and remove the excess solder *BEFORE* you turn on the XBox, then there's no harm done. But if you accidentally spill some on a power lead or something like that, then it'll most likely fry your motherboard when you turn it on. I did that with my Playstation a few year ago. Just take your time on the 1 wire, the rest should be a snap.

Well, I figure if by some chance I screw it up horribly, I'll buy a new one from Wal-Mart, replace it with the broken one, and take it back, to get a refund.

Just make sure you have the right tools. Like a 15 watt solder iron is great. Make sure the tip is thin. Also I would agree with practicing soldering on some old junk circuit boards. If you accidently put too much solder on. Just get a desolder braid to remove the excess solder. Just make sure you don't pull any of the copper points out of your board or you could be screwed.

Well, they might act a little strange when they notice that the xbox pads are ripped off, and the warranty label is ripped off, but by all means...heh.

Well, I doubt they'll even open the box, besides to check it's there. Wal-Marts, in my experience will take back almost anything, including OPENED video games sometimes...it's crazy...

Oh, and thanks to all the guys who have offered support, like scu316, brandonbooth, etc...I appreciate it!
