No way. It worked. I've been prepping for a few weeks, but I had 0 confidence in my repair skills. I did the heatgun method following this guide and a bunch of videos on Youtube and BAM. It's on with the green light right now. Wish I had controllers to test it, but we'll see how long it lives.
I just tried this and I really, really hope it works. It's cooling now from the heatgunning I gave it.
