region lock location on the motherboard

Hello ifixit community,

here is my problem;

I have a working motherboard with the wrong region and another one with a broken DRC-WUP graphic chip with the right region. I just want to solder the chip where the region lock is located to the working motherboard.

can someone tell me, where the region lock is located on the wii u gamepad motherboard?

Thanks for helping,

rgds Thomas

I found it out mysef. You just have to replace the U10 Micron 25Q256A 256 Mb Serial Flash with your original. Then you can use a motherboard with different region
