Says 99101 LF
      Rev D8B5

Also on the circuit board: 990000-03A LF

It has 2 x 3000P-2122a-G / 6121030-A / 0636-200-A
        1 x 0700C-XCXXa-G / USB2.0 / D2F9Y.7 / 0635-0100-C
        1 x VT6212L / 0617CD

Do you mean build from the leading edge? No, didn't try that.

Brilliant, thanks, but how is that possible? I can imagine it's not a
huge change to make a new ID recognised, but with the chips being
different, isn't a huge complicated change? Or are these different
variants of the same chip?
