I have seen the Tbred wire wrap mod so you can lower the multi's. I was wondering if you can do the same thing with the non tbred XP chips so you can access really high multi's above 12.5x. I really would like to find out as it seems to be possible, just i dont know what pins to wrap.

Probably going to be a lot of wrapping since on the older XPs you have to connect the whole L1 bridge to unlock it. So that would be 5 sets of pins, probably next to each other. Not impossible if you have *really* precise tools to do the job, but it might be easier to do a regular old "rear window defogger" unlock.

Yes, i was planning on just the rear window defogger to cross the L1's but to access the higher multi's you would either have to cut bridges or from what i understand wire wrapping would work also, just i have never seen the right pin layout id for the .18 micron XP chips. I could cut the bridges but am looking around for another way.
