I stripped out the 3.9mm Phillips screw yesterday; tried the rubber band trick without success. Ended up taking a 1/16” drill bit and drilling just through the top of the head of the screw (head popped off) allowing the bracket to come out. I left the body of the screw in the post; upgraded my card to 802.11ac, and the upgrade doesn’t utilize the bracket.
If I really wanted to, I can grab the exposed portion of the screw body with some vice grips and rotate it out…
I had an order pending for almost a year before I cancelled it. Found Subtle Design through MacRumors — https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/802...

I replaced my 2012 15” MacBook Pro Unibody card with a 802.11ac + BT 4.2 card from Subtle Design (https://subtle.design/collections/techno...). Working great so far; found on MacRumors (https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/802...)

Please don’t use isopropyl alcohol to clean wounds—it is actually detrimental to cellular healing. Rinsing copiously with normal saline or clean water is much better.

Data transfer speeds via Lightning adapter is becoming less and less important—the last iTunes update removed iOS apps from iTunes. Apple is pushing more and more data transfers over wireless.
Both the iPhone 8 and Samsung’s latest (Note 8) utilize Qi’s Basic Power Profile (5 Watt), with the iPhone capable of receiving 5W, and the Note receiving 4.5W. The LG V30 utilizes the Extended Power Profile (15W) capable of receiving 10.5W. This pulled from the Wireless Power Consortium’s certified devices list (the LG V30 page: https://www.wirelesspowerconsortium.com/...) (the iPhone 8 page: https://www.wirelesspowerconsortium.com/...)
The iPhone 8 also supports fast charging—via Apple’s USB-C to Lightning cable (must be USB-C PD) and a compatible wall wart (like Apple’s 29W USB-C wall adapter).
