We’re seeing more and more ‘rework at home’ blog posts. this one is removing and replacing TSOP RAM from a router using a mini-torch… Kenneth writes

This project is specific to the rev 2 hardware, due to Linksys converting the routers from SDRAM to DDR RAM at some point (Probably the G/GL split?).  It is certainly possible with newer versions, but requires different chips and nvram parameters.  Obviously, this means that with the addition of a new flash chip (which you’d need a JTAG cable to debrick), you could probably convert a WRT54Gv8 into a WRT54GL…
