You might see if you can find a service or professional to re-solder or replace the broken connector. You may have to purchase a blown out board to obtain the connector. This is not a DIY sort of repair - especially for someone who tor the connector off. Soldering, removing replacing logic board components require special tools and skills. Investigate the costs, it might be more economical to replace the logic board.
