It`s a nice guide, BUT way too much work and too many things can go wrong. I would rather have bought a new one.....

if you were just gonna buy a new one it would be worth trying, if it works you could flog the old one off to pay for new one.
are the ones yer m8s did still working? have heard that quite a few develop the YLOD again after a short while.
btw. how did you get the video embeded on forum?

Yeah they prob will go again, that's why u fix then and sell them asap Smile
1 mate's is still going after 1 month, another guy's broke after 3 weeks and the other sold his as soon as he got it running.

Oily to embed the youtube - [flash(425,350)]LINK HERE[/flash] I mod on another forum which uses bbcode so picked up a few things, we have a youtube embed function but that code should work just the same
