…I’ve got a permanent workspace and some projects that could use a Bus Pirate, but I’m too cheap to buy a new one. Therefore I decided to replace the PIC24 chip by hand. Using a couple of rosin core solder blobs as a kind of makeshift flux, I heated the chip with my rework station and pulled it off with some tweezers. Tomorrow, the new PIC comes in the mail from mouser, so if all goes well I’ll have it fixed then.
