Hey guys so I have been trying to get this corona v1 to glitch for 2 days now. I do believe that my soldering is ok but the green debug
light on my cr3 lite isn't blinking. Can somebody tell me whats wrong.
here are the pics of my wiring and soldering

P.S. I had originally tried to used the alternate point FT3T10 but the double shielded cable lifted the pad so i fixed the trace and all, but could that be affecting the glitch in any way?
Here are some p[ics of my trace fix.

I have also tried the 1 & 5 on settings for S2 with no luck.
Thanks Guys all help is greatly appreciated!

What happened to that CPU_RST point?

It looks as if you have damaged it.

Are you certain that it's a v1 (does it have POST_OUT underneath the heatsink)?

im sure that its a V1 because it has a 16MB ST NAND so it must be a V1. I do not believe that I have damaged the CPU_RST point. It is a little black but you can see that the wire makes a good connection with the point.
Here is a better pic of CPU_RST.

Bl4k3y do you think that I should just remove the xclamp and solder the CPU_RST to the point under the xclamp and try that? Would that be whats preventing the debug light from coming on?

Thank you David. I have found the error of my ways I now believe that this is a V3 corona and not a V1.
Here is a pic of the post_out

I thought that it was a V1 since the NAND is black just like the one on here and i never took the time to actually take off the xclamp and look for myself.
I guess that my next step is to buy a post fix adapter.
Thanks guys for all of your help!
