Just ordered this cpu and want to unlock it.
I had no problems with my T-bird 800 but have heard that the xp's are harder to unlock. Any help would be great!

www.tomshardware.com Has a really good article. A word of advice (if you'll take it from someone who has failed at this) do NOT use superglue to fill the wells. Use nailpolish remover. Do NOT use cheap scotch tape, I found big clear box tape works really well. And do NOT use a copper based window defogger kit or Solder weld.
I hope that by letting you know what didn't work for me, You can choose things that will work for you. Good luck! Steady hands, a good eye, and a magnifying glass are all bonuses.

Stupidity should be painful.

I used clear nailpolish to fill the wells, tape, and silver conductive paint... 1st time it didn´t work so everything comes right of with nailpolish remover, 2nd time I had better luck!

All I can say is that it was a real pain in the you know what. Even with a magnifying glass, my eyes aren't that good for this @#$%!. Took me a while, but I finally got it right...

And here I am, the only one with an unsuccessfully unlocked chip
... poor me. How much is silver conductive paint, and where do you find it?
