    Applebred Duron 1400 unlocking

    I tried the Lv2 mod but have had no success so far despite trying a few times. I am scratching the 'cut' Lv2 bridge and completely filling it with Silver conductive paint from Maplins.
    Each time i try to boot with the paint on it beeps lots of times,although works fine when i remove it with a rubber. The chip i got is:
    DHD1400LV1C T807117260549
    MIUHB 0338VPMW
    It is actually very strange! The bridges are completly differnt to all the photos/pictures i have seen. As this crude picture shows:


    The shown loops are actually more complicated but would only confuse the matter if i did show them.
    My main problem is that the bridge i am trying to connect is very small - smaller than a Tb core - it certainly cant be see without a magnifying glass.
    Has anyone have any ideas if this is normal or have i got an unmodable chip?

    This article HERE (in Italian) may be explaining my problem. If I understand the article correctly (via Google translator) AMD has changed the bridges. It looks like the the connection points are misaligned from the traces as to make painting impossible.
    The article alludes to an upcomming pin-mod but it's not yet available.

    Here is a close-up of what my chip looks like as shown on the above mentioned site:

    If you looks very carefully you can see that the connections are not so simple anymore, even if you do scratch to get to them.

    I had another go today but had the same result!

    yeah you can't do it on the surface as you will end up connecting l2 and l9(one row of contacts is hidden) but you can do it on the pins or zif socket with a piece of wire
