Yes, you can do the install but I'm sure there will be a better guide with altivernative solder points that don't require to lift the eMMC.

Also another thing that might cause problems, is the current public build of Hekate - all the working versions running on OLED switches, seem to be non public builds, handed out by CTCaer.

CTC said he will release the fix this week, but AMS doesn't fully support aula btw.

There is no rush here - the current method of modding it is barely a PoC.
I'm sure the modchip design will be adapted to the OLED PCB changes and once this happens, I'm sure Hekate and AMS are running 100% on this unit.

Does anyone know how to contact the person who posted those pictures. A larger picture of the overall board from them would be very useful

I assume this will be the limiting factor for most. Cant wait to get an OLED to start probing.
I will be getting the installation done soon. My installer will be filming the full procedure. The only thing is if it's better to purchase a core chip and leave my lite chip which I was hoping to use.

The only point I can't really see well is the D point on the mobo. I'm sure better pics are coming.

same here; I was initially waiting for the installation pictures but after researching to pass the time it quickly flipped around to wanting to find the install points myself. even with the existing pictures, I will probably have a go at mapping it out on my own once I am able to get a console

I don't get what the the writing means though if their any translators here please tell me.
First paragraph translated:

The cracking principle is the same as that of the old large version, because the CPU is the same. Find the corresponding 4 points on the motherboard, and fly the line to the sx chip. The idea is not complicated at all, and the ordinary fly line has no technical content. The most difficult thing is to fly to point C to remove the BGA font chip.

We already know this so...

Not sure but you can clearly see the differences in the chinese characters. Simply match them up so you don't mess up. I'm assuming ground, not to sure yet. Ones a + and ones a - per pic.

So technically 6 wire setup.

I'm surprised they were able to do this looking at their soldering.

The original installation "tutorial" is actually published on 91wii, by flyming:
https://www.91wii.com/thread-264892-1-1.html
https://www.91wii.com/thread-264922-1-1.html

Someone already republished it here, so you do not need to login to view the entire thread:
https://web.archive.org/web/20211013112441/https://tieba.baidu.com/p/7573667759

The C pin requires desoldering eMMC chip, and the D pin requires cutting the SoC frame, both are either difficult or potentially destructive. Hopes there are alternative pins on the board to solder.
