 bottom right, where marked SW100.  the two tracks that are vertical,
one to the left of the word "R46", one to the right.  solder a wire
between those two.  if you make it two wires, and you don't mind bits
of sellotape, you could twist the ends together, cover them in
sellotape so that there's flat-out zero chance of shorting anywhere on
the main PCB, make damn sure that there's no strands which could poke
through.  or, heck, just solder them.  then you can disconnect at

 how the heck they managed to get the NAND programmed without that i
really don't know.  probably manually shorted them out, putting it in
a special developer-kit SO-DIMM holder or something.  *shrug*.
