I am no hardware guy, in fact I haven't even opened up my phone beyond
the battery case yet...not that I see some risk...just that I don't
see any reason to do that. Anyways, for bass fix there is a wiki page
(http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/GTA02_bass_fix) which suggests more
that one way of fixing the issue with pros and cons
For bug#1024, the only nice link I got was
