Has anybody upgraded their XM-L to and XM-l2; or any other emitter swap? I'm curious how difficult it would be to remove the led; I'm assuming it's epoxied to the heat sink.

I didn't do it personally, but I had it done. XM-L T6 in Sunwayman V60C to an XM-l2 U3. Vinh did it, but there were no changes to the driver, it was a straight emitter swap.

I just confirmed that the star is epoxied to the heatsink. Anybody have any suggestions on how to get the star off without destroying it?
