    The soldering is not too bad just tap the cap slightly with a hot iron and some solder on the tip. Then tin a 30 AWG wire and place it on the cap and tap it again the solder will stick at all points and once you remove the tip your golden.

    Tell you what, Mick. It is easy. The hardest part is soldering to the USB lines on the trinket. Well, thats not actually not hard - its removing of the USB port thats hard. Without knackering the pads. Use plenty of fluxite. Or a rework hot-air wand which is what I use for such jobs. But a cheating way is to get a Raspberry Pi USB shim and solder to that. You may or may not have a bulge come screwing-back-together time.

    Well I'm still gonna wait for tx modchip solution... Even though it will be considerably more expensive than trinket m0, it surely wont be overexpensive either and will most likely also bring a key 4 SX OS...

    I don't even understand ppl crazy by the SX OS going nuts over it getting cracked instead of just buying it even though I also think it's too expensive for the OS only, but if I really wanted it, I would have bought it already, even though I don't have almost any money...

    But I my self Will be waiting is for emunand before even entering RCM a single time, I don't want SX OS... Now if it was emunand I would have bought it already.

    Because I want free too so I just wait for atmosphere and don't want any cracked SX OS my self...

    Anyway I'm all in 4 emunand so I don't want SX OS at this point not even 4 free.

    Now TX dongle is a completely different thing and I wouldn't mind having one, but I will also just keep waiting for the soldering one and get everything automated from coldboot instead.

    Soldering takes patience. When I did my install, I didn't even touch the components. I just tinned the wire, rested the wire on the contact points and touched the tinned wire. The solder melted and bonded to the contact points and the caps. I felt more confident that the wire got hotter faster than the cap did and lessened the chances of me flipping the cap off the board. I know it's not the perfect way to solder but I stick within my capabilities. Not gunning for the "My install is prettier than thou" badge.

    Stop with this crap on every thread.

    You are describing a measure directly while the name of the Micro SD is a memory technology standard and its not exactly micro in size or it would be like everyone now saying their cars are like 0.002 kilometers to say just 2 meters...

    uSD doesnt sound anything like the Micro-SD memory standard (which has nothing to do with the actual size measures), because the micro in it is just describing as the smallest storage standard, but has NOTHING to do with micro size world of things as the whole Micro SD is measured more in mmXmm and inside each sector is actually nano size - nm which is something even hard to see with a normal microscope...

    ps: I'm out of food!!!

    I will stop as soon as noone makes this stupid mistake again.

    Of course it does. You only write u if you don't have µ on your keyboard. Either way it is pronounced micro.

    Just because mu is also micro in SI doesn't mean every instance of the word micro is the same as mu.

    What if for some reason I decide to call my personal troll\dog\cat as Micro? Now you can't abbreviate to u which is about size and Micro is now my troll\dog\cat personal name :).

    Micro SD is a common name...

    Exactly! And µ is the common abbreviation for micro.

    You seem confused. mu is not the common abbreviation of micro, it is the abbreviation used when asserting 1x10-6. Nobody in their right mind uses mu as a substitute for every occurence of micro in the English language.

    You seem to be very uneducated. Sorry, I'm not your teacher. You should look for a professionel to help you.

    Here are some facts you should learn asap:
    1) µ is the common abbreviation of micro
    2) 1x10^-6 = micro = µ

    I take it English is not your first language as that would explain your complete inability to understand this point. Notice how it is 2 native English people who are trying to explain it to you.

    In all SI units, you don't see mu written. Ever. 10 to the minus 6, same as nano is 10 to the minus 9. No amount of big Ms or little ms will change that. I could call micro "turd" if I wish. Doesn't make it correct...

    Turd is 10 to the minus 6. Turdamps turdmeters. Will it catch on?

    Exactly. It is always µ (or u).
