ack. if you got a green pcb gta01bv4, aka 'a device sold for money' you
should not have q1001 at all.

this is an interesting question. i know nothing of such a resistor hack

solid i can research that in the schematics.
but currently i believe thats based on misunderstanding/gossip and what
is meant is the transistor above.
