I'm impressed! You risked those 2 slim PCBs knowing that if you messed up the kamikaze there was no way to flash equivalent 1071 fw to another board to recover the console.
Haha, customers wanted their boards unlocked anyway so it would be one less step when new fw came out. It's really not that difficult once you remove epoxy and mark points.
What I'm more shocked are the images I see of people who drill/dremel/etc without removing epoxy or marking the chip. I have done quite a few now and can say that the print does indeed vary from each chip.
