Would a nand flex be a good way to salvage this board? Or would that end up raising the overall difficulty.
Sheeeeesh, I don't think I've ever seen a fill ripped off like that before... Personally I'd trash it cause it might just not even be worth the effort trying to fix when Wiis are as cheap as they are. Others might be able to know for sure if its garbo or not?Just checked the resistances and they are measuring ok (120 for 1V, 8.7k for 3.3V, 50 for 1.15 on a RVK-CPU-01) so I moved on, did U10 relocation (except the pins came off so had to use u9) and then during LDO removal with hot air this happened.

What went wrong during hot air removal? How can I avoid this in the future. Also is the board at all useable or completely trash at this point?
Also, the C3 came off slightly, is that a problem as well?

You can remove them without worry, will give you extra vertical clearance in that area as well so its usually recommended to remove them.
It's not bad. You cut a bit close on the nand pins face tho. You'll have to be careful when sanding that side so as not to destroy the little ceramic capacitorI've modded and trimmed a new wii. Would anyone mind checking my work and letting me know if this trim will work? During sanding of the last one, I sanded through another NAND trace. It's going in the pile for later, I want to start with a better foundation for my first portable.
Dremel got away from me D:Also why'd you cut out that notch by the CPU?
I seemed to sand away a lot last time around. How do you tell when the board has actually been sanded enough?You'll have to be careful when sanding that side so as not to destroy the little ceramic capacitor
You can measure the resistance between the various voltage rails to determine if there's an indication of any shorts between them.I seemed to sand away a lot last time around. How do you tell when the board has actually been sanded enough?
