So, I got a new guitar with a floyd rose on it, and its the first one i've ever got with such a bridge on it. Anyways, i was restringing step by step by the manual, but when I go to tune it, I noticed that each string I tune, affects the pitch of the other strings. Am i doing this wrong?

[EDIT] I also forgot to mention that ive restringed with heavy guitar strings, but I modified the springs on the back as it said to do on the floyd rose site.

The other strings will change until you hit the balance point, you need to cross tune e.g. tune string 6-5-6-5-4-6-5-4-3 etc until it's completely in tune, then you'll have to adjust the springs at the back and tune again until the bridge is level.+

Alright so ive tried cross tuning, but after i go to .. 6-5-4-3-2-1 the 6th one is still out of tune and I've repeated the pattern to get into tune until the string snapped,

Here ill copy paste something I wrote in a similar thread last week.

Here is what I do to make adjusting floating trems a lot easier. I block the trem off using a piece of wood or if its available a tremolono. Make sure that when its blocked that the trem is perfectly parallel to the the body. Then I tune the guitar, once I have achieved the tuning I want I remove the block from the bridge and adjust the springs until the trem is parallel with the body again. Then do some fine tuning and tighting everything up. I can usually do a restringing in just a few minutes *not including the time needed to stretch out new strings*.
