As you can see here, you're still trying to access the field by its old name.  You need to

update all the FieldInstruction's to refer to the field by its new name, 
$chx_Orig_BITFoundation.  You can either iterate over all Instructions and pick out the 
FieldInstructions, or you can play around with the constant pool.  see a recent (maybe 
last week) thread in this mailing list about the perils of the 2 approaches.

I guess this is the same problem, although seeing the actual bytecode would clear this up.

  Maybe you compiled this before you edited BITFoundation, and then got the error 
afterward?  In that case, i strongly suspect it's the same problem.
