would be interested in this as well.
ive soldered a few cards already, but ive never seen something tiny as Richtek RT8802A - point 6-7...

honestly, i wouldnt dare to solder that as its damn small - too dangerous to short neighbor contacts

I think SN60 PB40 solder with 1%flux or less and 0,5mm diameter or less
but solder wouldn`t be the problem more the tip of your soldering iron
for tiny things like this i use antex 18W iron with needle tip

I been using a .3mm pencil tip, and .3mm solder for stuff that fine, with some Paste flux. A high quality brush on flush makes small rework of smd stuff cake most of the time even when your using a larger tip.

I have some questions. In this image



It is not that clear what is going on. I understand that you are cutting the VID 6 circuit to ground, and shorting it to VID 7 on the controller side with the small wire. However to the left on the board it looks like there is another small copper wire. Is this wire the result of cutting the PCB and it is merely exposed or are you tying the old "O" ends together? Per my understanding 6 is connected to power and 7 is connected to ground so by connecting them you are closing the circuit? The clump of solder below the VID 7 plug is what is confusing me. Im not sure if something is soldered to here or this is just a leftover clump lying on the board.

Also by the VCC on the board there is a small blue, snaking wire (or at least it looks like one in the photos). Is this a wire you are running from the VCC to the component behind it?

Thank you for any info, I ask because I plan to duplicate your work.
