 ahhh.... just to clarify (from skype conversations) adam informs me
that the blob was already there, placed on presumably by chitech.

 so - apologies adam for thinking it was you :)

 what i've recommended that adam try, for simplicity, is just to
remove the blob, and we see what happens: it may be the case that open
circuit means "please use external sdcard" - we just don't know, but
are going to find out.

 this is less risky than attempting fine-soldering.
