I already asked you to be patient.
A hw-fix has to be "developed", it has to be tested on dozens of devices, it 
has to be evaluated for cost&risk vs. benefit (maybe there are other possible 
fixes. are they more effective? less dangerous?). Then it depends on purpose 
of any hw-fix: is it for MP of new devices, for rework at some lab where 
devices are sent in, or is it meant to be done by a DIY soldering iron 
You see it's not that simple 
We have to think about multiple scenarios and come up with an answer to each 
of them, evaluating them, and then post some Standard Operating Procedure 
suggestions to customers/community.
