Let's hack on the forma!

I've got a forma, and I wanna hack on it. The first step is backup and making sure I can recover it if things go wrong.

So far I've found:

which has some good photos of the thing.

I've also opened mine up, I used a credit card to get the hooks at the "fat" end, then pulled the case off, the whole thing is held on by plastic hooks and some rubber adhesive (probably for water resistence).

It looks to me like both the CPU and the eMMC chip have debugger probes connected, but I don't actually have a debugger to do the flash.
