Nintendo Switch BSOD Fix - Reballing eMMC & SoC Nvidia Tegra!

A Nintendo Swich came into service with the blue screen of death (BSOD)
The first time i tried was a reball to the eMMC memory but without success. Then i turned my attention to the Nvidia Tegra SoC processor. This time after the reball the console came back to life. It is the second Switch that i successfully reball.
This time the footage is of better quality and more explicit. I hope to help those interested a little.
I apologize for my bad english.

hi fxdx, im thinking of trying to reball a cpu of a bosd nintendo switch lite that i have. I got some question though. I saw the video of your reball, and notice the stencil is direct heat, how did you manage to put the balls on the stencil? with out making a mess? also did you apply flux to the cpu before putting the balls?

First you put flux on the processor and spread it well with a used plastic card, then apply the sieve, center it well on its architecture, glue the heat-resistant tape on the edges to keep it fixed, then put it in a plate and gently pour the balls over the sieve and with a spatula or even with your finger pass over the sieve to get balls everywhere. Surprisingly remove it carefully and recover the balls from the plate and put it back in the ball box.

watched your videos for quite some time an I now have got an soc that needs reballing.
It’s a t214 and I’m not sure which stencil to use.
There are quite some different informations on the internet and I don’t want to waste too much money choosing the wrong one.
Would you be so kind to help me out with an name or even a source?
Thank you
