    I started to get bubbles on the MCU a month ago.

    I finally had the time to remove it and fix it.

    I used gorilla epoxy, it's rated for -23c to 85c or so. I applied a layer of the epoxy around the edges of the screen and since then I haven't received any new bubbles.

    Now I need to figure out how to disable the logging that kills the eMMC.

    Do you have any photos of exactly where you applied the epoxy? I am about to buy a replacement screen and want to do that before installing it.
