Hello, yesterday, in a Buzz fix party in Milan, it happen something very
similar to this.
One Freerunner was fixed, but the mic was busted.

Luckily it was a test unit used for test by Eshopen.

Another point is that the fix was tried with a traditional solder, not
with a microscope soldier, so we think that this was the cause.

I suggest who want to try the fix to take a lot of care, and to search
for an specialist center. Thank again to Eshopen for its help to help us
in fixing our Openmoko.
