Yeah thats what I did. I would get some soldier on the iron then just touch the point for a second. If I needed to add more I would add some more soldier to the iron tip and touch the point again.
I did that with all points. Prepping the modchip with soldier is pretty easy since you have more room to soldier.
Tinning wires is easy. Get some wood or a book you don't need. Put masking tape on the wood/book. Then take your iron and soldier, and get a big ball of soldier onto the tip and place it somewhere on the masking tape. Its as if you were applying the soldier to the masking tape. Keep the iron tip there. Take your wires one-by-one and stick the wire into the molten soldier. If you think that the wire needs more tinning stick it in there again. The iron and the molten soldier will not burn the masking tape. (I did it on a newspaper on my dinning table.) Also, the soldier will not stick to the masking tape after you remove the iron, it will just harden then you can use your nails to easily scrape it off.
I tinned the wires so that it had a tiny amout of sodlier, that way the prepped soldier point and the wire would easily stick.
It's pretty fun when you get the hang of it.
