I'd say, it can be a "permanent" fix. The problem is, the worse the degradation on the LPC_CLOCKOUT port has gotten, the lower value resistor you need to use for the pull-up. Lower the pull-up resistance, higher the load on the low side switch, which can also break.From what I read on different forums this fix is only to prolong the life of the unit because at some point they will still fail and they cannot be repaired anymore.
Is it true or it can be considered a permanent fix?
120Ohm is a real RISK. I ended up using a 180Ohm on the dead unit. On a used but working unit, 1k2 feels about right.
