Yes, remove the tsop from them and put it in the compatible adapter and connect it to the programmer (willem is the one i uses to use).

Dump it, open the dump in JF and creste a stock FW for it and save an encrypted copy. Flash the encrypted copy and solder the tsop back. If i didnt forget anything then youre done now.

With bit effort might recover with soldering just cables to pins just this will be extreme :D
It's of course a possibility but as you have two to unbrick and the adapter probably is less than $10 from eBay it may be worth getting one?

Problem is that can't find it for 10$ :D
No I couldn't either, when I got mine it was cheap but I think they make them in gold and diamonds these days :p at least it look like it on the prices.

well, check the shipping rates then. if its to expensive i could take the whole boards so i can make sure they are working after my fix, was a few years since i did this the last time ;)
