I know how he removed it, and the way I did it was the correct way to do it, with a hot air rework station. Don't take it the wrong way, but I know what I am doing
Even still, this is something I want everyone to be able to do, so with an adapter board I could make a heap up for others, then people only need to know how to use a screw driver to do the mod, not an expensive hot air rework station.
I replied to your email address
You got it spot on, that's exactly what I am going to do, have a daughter board with a FFC in between the small daughter boards.
Check the post I just made (#645), as I have added the connector information.
I should have the daughter board designed in a few minutes (PCB's are eeeasy), then its just a wait till whenever my next PCB panel comes in, then I can test out the idea.
