Thank you Abishur. I do find it a little odd that a new batch of boards can be made in less time than it takes re-soldered jacks to be done though ? My soldering skills are rudimentary, but I think I could have done 8,000 by now, given the amount of time elapsed.
I seem to remember reading that the first of the serial batch will be due in May, (http://www.element14.com/commu.....spberry-pi
) and you are saying that the batch of 8,000 will arrive after this...those incorrect jacks must be *very* well soldered on !
That's just my guess at this point, I don't have any inside information to make that gospel I know that they were having a hard time at the first getting enough replacement jack so that maybe that slowed things up, but that's just pure speculation, for all I know they could be on the backs of 7 Sherpas traveling over the Himalayas as we type
