What does the process of physically removing the wifi/bluetooth module look like for a Raspberry Pi 4? How hard it is for a beginner & for someone experienced with soldering? And how likely it is to damage some neighbouring component?
I don't care to save the module for re-use later on, just want to get it off even if that means damaging it.
This is for an air-gapped device, so physically unavailable hardware is much better than hardware disabled by software. I read this answer on a similar question but the one of RPi4 looks bigger, not sure how it looks under that metal shield. Couldn't find a guide on the same.
Evaluating RPi4 over other models which lack WiFi/Bluetooth capabilities purely on the basis of performance. CPU even though is only a little better, but memory seems to be a lot faster than any other models.
