Oh yea, don’t forget to clean up the heatsink and order some thermal paste! You will need it I did a stripe down the length of the rectangular chip and a big blob in the middle of the square one. So far, so good.
Just did this and found the hardest part was getting the new board in without ‘loosing’ some cables. I did loose one - the backlighting cable but the the time I discovered that I was in no mood to take things back apart to retrieve it. Worked fine when done but am having a bit of intermittent behavior which I think may be related to a previously replaced SSD card. New one on the way for Monday install.
Thanks for a great, detailed tutorial. Very tedious - good test of patience.
