Question: anyone can confirm which is pin 55? Is it left side from top to bottom number 7 is pin 55?

Answer: Exactly you are correct. It is from top to bottom number 7. Now lift it.

If you are using J-link software, let pin55 up until the end of programming, then solder pin55 to ground like in the picture attached.

I did this way and worked perfectly.

Question: I want to replace these tantalum capacitors in A1 adapter, but the replacement must be exact like the originals?
The originals have 106C 49E73 written. Must I find capacitors with the same numbers?


the top numbers are the value, the letter is the tolerance while the second row are just batch numbers so if you are replacing then yes the value numbers in your case must be the same ie 106C, is 10uf
some have a maximum voltage stamped as well but in your case you have to work out the maximum voltage of the board and then add some extra so I would use 25v rated or 35v rated if you are going to use the unit on 24v trucks.
