If it comes to having to hack the chips, my hacksaw job previously
detailed on this list disconnects the internal battery, and substitutes an
external battery. I would think that would clear the NVRAM. I don't know
the pinout of that chip, but it also might be possible to short a couple
of the legs (if the internal battery voltage is present on external legs)
this also should clear the NVRAM
