@redsPL I'm here, the flash is fun. If it's not fun, why bother?
as long as you are dexterous enough to put the clip on the flash chip correctly
What thinkpad model is in the picture? I am looking forward to flash my X200T but it may have a WSON-8 chip which no SOIC Clips available (I need to solder the wires), and will use a modded CH341a instead of a RPi.
@ssora X60s (my main lappie currently) as a ssh terminal, X220 on the first and X201t on the second. That was actually my first time using a clip, I've been soldering wires for quite a long time (I flashed at least 10 laptops to this day, some of them multiple times ;P)
