People are scared of doing the MRA dump but I do all my drives this way, really easy...
+ you dont need to spend any money on stuff!.
The traces are very easy to cut....just make sure you have a sharp stanley blade and make two small cuts across the trace and the centre bit of trace will just pop up off the board leaving you a nice cut.
The soldering isnt hard either, plenty of space on each bit that needs soldering.
Just double and triple check that your solder hasn't bridged anything and that your cuts are clean and you cant go wrong.
long live the MRA!
