I always remove with hot air. Fresh solder to all the pads first. I never lift pads using this method.

See that's exactly what I'm thinking.  Have you got a youtube channel by any chance?

Might as well learn the hot air gun method so you can replace a chip/CPU some day like a pro. My SNES needs one of the 32KB x 8-bit SRAM (D43256AGU-10L) chips replaced some time when I get around to it. The pins are far enough to try with a solder iron (a good one!), but it's risky to go one by one...
