Fix hardwood flooring
During the whole process be aware of the edges of the flooring that is going to stay. First prepare the area for dust control. Mark the boards to be replaced. With a flat wood bit in your drill, bore a hole near, but not at both ends of the pieces being replaced. Bore only to the sub-floor. Set your circular saw to cut thru the flooring but barely touch the sub-floor beneath. Make two passes with the saw about 1/2" in from each edge. Lift out the center of the piece being removed. With a sharp chisel split the small end pieces at each saw cut and remove. With a chisel, tap the groove side of the piece toward the middle and remove. There may be a little chisel work to get it out. There will be a bit more chisel work on the tongue side. Chisel the tongue side until the fasteners are located and remove them. Remove the piece completely and remove any paper between the flooring and the sub-floor. Vacuum the area to prepare for the new board. Lay the new piece next to the opening and mark the length. If this is end match, t&g at teh ends cut the ends square. I mark heavily and leave my mark when I cut. It can be cut again if it is too long. Choice here are, cut the bottom of the groove and or the tongue off the new board. I leave the tongue and hook the piece in place. Easier to remove it though. Back cut the length on a table saw, being careful not to reduce the size of the face. This will make the bottom of the board narrower than the face. A sander can be used if no table saw is available. Once sized put glue on the sub-floor and put in the replacement piece. If the tongue was left, it must be tapped sideways to get to the point where it will drop in. Do not hit the wood directly. Used a scrap piece as convincer. When lined up, use a scrap piece of wood to drive the new piece down into place. The new board will be thicker and will need sanding. Congrats.

How do I release the blade on a Pendulum pjs550 jig saw so I can replace it?
Push the reciprocating head protecting your hand with a glove if necessary. All the way to a center point just above the shoe or table of the tool. Then loosen the two fasteners that bind the blade keep horizontally from the spool head. An Allen head is a six sided wrench. Where a Torque style is a star style. Either equivalent in a T-handled wrench works best. On to removal.
Support the spool head from shifting around with one hand whilst torqueing the fastener counter clockwise to remove or loosen it to free the blade. Should the blade be seized or jammed in the well of the spool head. Use a pair of needle nose plyers to free the blade by vigorously shaking then pulling.
All of this should be done with the electrical plug removed from power to protect your safety. For me. Safety glasses should always be worn.
