  6. My friend tried this but got impatient, it resulted in a ruined card. This is definitely a valid technique though, it's actually quite a good way to earn money once you mastered it - pick up some cheap broken board on eBay and resell once you fixed it. The same technique can actually be applied to RROD 360's (Well, slightly different, but the same idea)
