Haha, I know exactly what you're saying mate, but if I wasn't spending time messing about with this I'd probably be messing about with my N5 so it's no real loss in terms of time or effort. We have a fair selection of Android devices in the house already (see my sig) so I don't think my gf would allow to have another one anyway!

I've actually managed to sell it on eBay and will break even on the phone and parts so I'm happy not to be out of pocket and that it will be going to a new home

I am going to keep the spare Rev 2.4 board though, as I have a feeling the other S2 will soon suffer the same fate, and looks like the Note 2 is going to need it done in the not too distant future too as my gf noticed it sometimes doesn't charge or properly connect to the PC. At least it's an easy job! I still have nightmares about trying to disassemble the Desire HD!

You were a HUGE help mate, I really do appreciate it

Yup, always a great feeling bringing a phone back from the dead!

I'm guessing that the Note 2 probably has the same rev version issue that the S2 has......

Edit.....it does.....
I've spotted 2 different rev numbers for these boards so far.....

Yep, this time I will be opening it up first!

Even though I got it on release day I'm not going to make any assumptions
