We are actually in the process to figure out how to fix *all* devices sold, by 
implementing the so-called "big-C" fix (which means add a 100uF, replace one 
R), which can be done by those experienced in soldering. Not yet clear where 
this will end, but we're on it.

Very next thing is we will publish a rework SOP paper.
