Still no success.
The guy at the store didn't know how to solder correctly, and after 3 attempts, he gave up and gave me back the two emmcs (the 256GB and the original 64GB) and the empty motherboard

I ended up having to buy a heat gun and try the soldering myself.

After many soldering attempts, I ended up getting it working for a day, but the next day the emmc died. the cause of this may have been the excessive attempts I made (the heat may have deteriorated the IC).

I ended up buying a second emmc but it should still arrive next week
Sorry to hear my friend. I hope you have better luck with the second one!

i think i should make a video how i reball an emmc.
@binkinator
I have yet to answer your question in the other thread. I'm very busy and I'm trying these days.

That would be awesome!

I intend to do one as well and will do my best, but it’s going to be my first time reballing anything so I expect a lot of “constructive” feedback on my yet to be determined “technique”.

(no expectations on responses to anything…it’s just the Internet, man. It can wait.)

I'm very tempted to get a 2nd emmc board for my v2 just to try my hand at soldering the emmc. I've seen it done but haven't given it a go yet. Then again I had never reflowed any 0201 smd components before modding my v2 either.

If I can reliably do it with the v2 I'd probably give the OLED a try.

Same! I’m just a tech tourist. There’s really no need for this. I just want to add a skill and see if I can do it.

I’m over here getting all jacked up on YouTube reballing vids and Mountain Dew!
