    A2337 boot-looping

    Yeah this is exactly why I stayed away from the A1 laptops. I bought a 2020 MacBook Pro used for $700 with the bottom bezel on the screen broken that I'm going to fix eventually but for now works all because it has cosmetic damage. And yes, I think it's one of the NAND chips or the A1 processor...

    820-00165-A Not display on int or ext screen. Orange light and fan spins,

    This sounds like a question for Louis and he doesn't frequent the forums enough to answer you. I'd see if you can call the shop and ask him personally, although it's pretty hard to get him on the horn.

    A2337 boot-looping

    Alright shot in the dark here. How old is the SSD? Have you tried swapping the drive out with another one? You might be chasing a phantom here. I would try a second boot device before trying all this extra rework. If removing the bad part didn't fix it, and it still does the same thing, I'm...

    All this fucking anti-COVID bullshit is just another red PsyOp to get you to fear America.

    I saw some idiot posting about Ivermectin like that retard Joe Rogan does on his podcast. They think because they listen to arguments from authority that they're special. OHHH THE INVENTOR OF mRNA SAYS LE COVID VACCINE IS LE BAD! I can't believe how stupid people are sometimes. I really can't...

    Dealing with Apple's CarPlay bullshit

    So, Apple keeps changing the connectors every 5 seconds and the design paradigm every 5 seconds for CarPlay and this creates a cat-and-mouse game between Apple and head unit developers. I've reported this fucking issue 3 FUCKING TIMES TO THEM! And they refuse to fix it. CarPlay crashes all the...

    "Getting in shape"

    So recently I decided to become a better person through self improvement. I quit 4chan that I became addicted to after my girlfriend cheated on me and I wanted to hack them and find out things to report them for fraud to the FBI, but I found MUCH worse things that made me want to quit even more...

    Where to find a small clamp for reballing SMCs?

    When I was a watchmaker, I used to use this: It works well for holding the surface mount board while you do soldering. But if you're doing SMC shit, you need a microscope tray + the SMC rework station heat...

    PP = Power Pack G3 = Line name + Line Number HOT = active

    Everyone complains about the jargon Apple uses, but it's all technical term EE nonsense for "THIS GIVES POWER!" You've been screaming that into the camera for years at people, and they still don't get it. I feel sorry for you Louis. You are in an unwinnable situation...

    Invoice or receipt for $29/mo forum membership?

    I charged it to my Apple card, just to be an asshole to Apple one last time. Goldmann Sachs has the records, so only they can see it. Apple can suck the security they love so much's dick.

    Greetings from Gadget Guru - Owings Mills!

    Hi Louis! You may not remember me, but I tweeted to you from my now purged Twitter account @gir489 a million years ago because you taught me how to buy a laptop that doesn't suck ass for cheap! I bought some ASUS gaming laptop for $1500 at the time (used in the box) and got it shipped to my door...
