how come in the tutorial video it isnt a v cut but you tell everyone to do a v cut if i do it exactly like it is in the video will i be able to read the firmware on the drive fine or will i have trouble with it ie destroying the pad or separating the pad from the trace completly

There are different ways to do this to get the same result.
As your struggling with it, the v cut is best for you as it won't require you to cut across pad 101 which you would have to do with the straight cut.

i thought the v cut had to be on the pad 101 so i thought cutting the top of it would be easier so the v cut goes around the pad and not on it

i make my cut in an arc so it goes around the bottom of pad 101 but thats just how i prefer to do it. everybody has their own way, i personally dont like the v-cut but have done it a fair few times when i first started just to see what i found better and it was an arc.

so im a noob and ive only been able to do this hack successfully one time and this was months and months ago so i gave up.... :( but now i wanna give it a go again and hopefully i can get it right!! the part that gets me tho are the cuts:( the soldering and resoldering is fine but im just not really sure how to make the cuts...so this is my question, after whatching the vid i can see how to make the first cut clearly but the second cut i just have one question... so when u make the second cut do u; u see how its dark green line, copper then dark green line?, do u cut all the way through the lines as well as the copper or just only make the cut through the copper and not the dark green lines or do u cut all the way throught the top green line copper then bottom green line? hope someone understands my question so i can get this down packed!! thank you for any help :)

that after i flash it if i reconect the traces it dose not work i have to keep the top one un repaired and i need to leave the jumper wire in its same way for 5 i have done is it me or what?

and i do aperfect job at cuting and resoldering so its not my work..
