Yes! This is what I was looking for. We don’t have to worry about Pin 9. The C4 capacitor (or C3 on some models) is also connected to Pin 9. I think the article just mentions pin 9 as FYI.

Cool because the removal and jumper to power is easy that capacitor looks a bit above my skills.

We still have to connect Pin 28 to capacitor C4 and then C4 to Pin 2 of AMS1117 voltage regulator.

So best bet for those that can’t solder don’t have solder equipment is to use something like the revelprog-is?

Yes, this is what I used (successfully) to read and write to the GC-Titan Ridge flash ROM. But it needs Windows.

If you were using just the add in GC-Titan Ridge card, could you just use the firmware updater in Windows or does it reject it? Forgive me if this has already been addressed.

As far as I know, the firmware updater in Windows will reject our modified firmware.

If I can afford one this week I'll give it a shot. The Asus updater will take anything. It was almost comical.

We wait patiently for the surgery to complete...

Well everything appeared to go fine till fumbled it and he 28 pin snapped. Figured it was worth a try since I had ordered the device already, I guess its on to the expensive one.
