and I had a completely functional ZipIt. Learning from past mistakes I decided on a few things.I wanted from modding this.
Firstly I really didn't want to worry about the stability of the MMC socket mount so I decided to use 5 minute epoxy but not wanting to rely just on glue I also applied a bit of sulphuric acid and soldered the socket onto the RF shield.
I can pretty much trust it now without worries.Secondly I wanted to do the MMC mod's "soldering to resistors thing" only ONCE and I wanted to forget about it afterward.
So I used better wiring than last time and a blob of transparent 5 minute epoxy instead of hot glue to secure it
and last but not least I wanted the slit that I had to cut out from the casing to "just fit" without the tremendous amount of excess that I cut out last time.
and for the sake of keeping it clean I didn't do a serial port mod. I also didn't commit the mistake of dismantling the screen to do the backlight mod. That turned out horrendously last time.
I'm really satisfied with this one
