Pencil trick they are refering to pencils like the #2 stuff, those HBs or something similar level of graphite. So yes, that is correct.

But not all pencils. Those special leads like the 2B and upto 6B leads work. You'll have to put right pressure and how you draw the lines though. It worked for me. Unlocked all my AMD processors including AXP2100+. It's still working great. You draw it good enough, it'll last you longer. If you draw them lightly, sloppy job, then it would last you short. You'll have to reapply. The keys is that this method is good because you can use it as testing method when attempting to unlock the chips.

And ofcourse... if you don't feel comfortable using this method, you can always go with the unlocking kit... but my method takes me 3 minutes to unlock.. heehee!
