I really hope there's someone who still reads this forum, because I've screwed myself quite royally in a KT-0405-R conversion.
The instructions for removing the ADM202 state to "use a Dremel" as an option. Well, I got out the dremel, and ham-fistedly gouged out the pads that the chip used to sit on
...At least the chip is gone?
What I need to do now is attempt to follow the broken traces to the other endpoint and solder there. I managed to follow pin 9 back to the M377* chip (so I can ground it), but pins 11 and 12 I can't find the other endpoint. Or even the start point.
I posted giant high-res photos on Flickr of the damaged area here, if anyone can take a look.
I'm wondering if someone with another tablet - say, the UT- or GD-0405 - might have a similar layout that could give a hint. R03 and R04 are somewhat suspect, as well as any of the surrounding capacitors or the CP04, 05, 06, and 07 points.
