Mark had a problem, he had a broken ibook out of warranty and so he decided to fix it with fire!

Here’s his great disclaimer: Now, to make things sure, this is NOT A HOW TO. If you set your house on fire because of this, don’t come complain to me, okay? If you do attempt this, this is all AT YOUR OWN RISK. This really is the last thing you want to do to your iBook and the chance this operation succeeds is very little. [Video] – Link

    I have one of these duds torn to pieces in a box, after having tried every other fix in the book – I am overjoyed to find this! Thank you! Does anybody know offhand what the melting temperature of this solder might be?
