I wonder how many simpads have died from mods or flash-writes gone wrong...
Today i exercised desoldering 8 sdrams chips from an old dimm..
and after that decided to risk the procedure on my CL4
tried to replace the CL4 chips with two 256M bit from the old dimm
i ended up trying to get the old two chips back in
At one point i thought i had it starting (with the old chips again), green led showed...
but nothing on the console and a after battery-disconnect no more response.. it does load the battery though.
i have some faint hope this thing could work again
but only with new, working ram chips
perhaps if i have a surplus dimm and a better desoldering method..
however the board is getting messy, two of the padds are loose, one broke off
tried to patch it up with pieces of copper strip and wire, but.. haha.. well..
i /hope/ the rest of the board isn't (too much :ph34r: ) affected,
it did stand up well against my MMC modding..
But all things considered.. i'm afraid i have to declare another bricked simpad.
btw, 'instruments' included a cheap soldering-iron, needles, screwdriver, tweezer and a big magnifying glass.
