    But I dont want to get into an argument with you here, If you have the chance to get a heatgun, get one.
    It makes flawlessly removing SMD chips ultra easy and fast.
    Oh that, they aren't that broken as I thought.. :P I ended up trying this and it worked too..

    Seriously a heatgun is the best modding purchase. My heatgun was on sale for like 15$ and it removes all smd easily.

    And it will never go away, 6 years later.

    Seriously, there legitimately is no reason this wouldn't work, I mean the drive is the same, lol. The ribbon is even the same, just shorter. Length is all.

    When you're extending the ribbon, do you have to scrape the coating off and solder it?

    VERY carefully.. Scrap too much and you'll loose what to solder too.

    I think I have a better technique though for you guys, just de solder the socket off the mainboard and solder the wires to the socket to the mainboard.. That way you don't risk breaking the ribbon.

    Would a razor blade be good to scrape it with?

    I've had these get torn before and I never thought that you could repair them.

    I used the corner of a flat head screwdriver carefully. But you have to be careful or it will tare. Those conductors are fragile.

    I'd honestly recommend removing the socket from the main board and doing it that way.
