I heard that in the new iterations of the board, they are going to make this process more difficult due to some interal layout changes. If you are looking at a "old tutorial" on how to do it, should be careful.

You might have to play around a little bit to get this to work. Of course, in the process you might destroy your board. Always a risk you take when you try to mod a board. Either way, good luck
