MSP-EXP430FR5994: How to workaround the missing sdcard despite BOOSTXL-AUDIO presence

Part Number: MSP-EXP430FR5994
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: BOOSTXL-AUDIO, MSP430FR5994

The MSP-EXP430FR5994 no longer has the sdcard slot populated, so the corresponding pins of the chip are unavailable - and we dont have the abilities necessary to solder things to the tiny remaining metal points.

We could maybe use the only SPI port exposed as pins (P5.0 and 5.1), with an external sdcard module, but it is also used by the DAC of the BOOSTXL-AUDIO module, so it's hard for us to identify how this could conflict with our sdcard module. The only SPI CS available to target the sdcard module seems to be P4.4

Since we want to record audio and store it onto the sdcard, sharing the same MOSI/MISO for the same task might also lead to throughput issues.

Is there any advice or workaround, somewhere, to easily use a SDCARD holder on this MSP-EXP430FR5994 launchpad ?

I searched the docs and examples and forum in vain, and there are no other dev kits for this MSP430FR5994 it seems.

Thanks in advance for your help
