motherboard power pins broken

Hi I broke the connection while trying to remove the battery, so i could replace the screen. I haven't yet found a diagram for the 4s. The phone turns on but only to the apple logo

Could I just re solder where it has come off and buy a new batt

edit is this better? theres only one pin left out of the four central ones and the solder has come of completely on one contact

I had an old iPhone 4 lining around so i took the pins from that.

I'm pretty sure there is no pad as there is no silver so i will have to bypass?

Thank you for all your help :)

Scott, looks like your solder pads are still in place. You should be able to solder the battery connector back on. If you have not solder on that type of scale, I would suggest that you get someone to do it for you. Sorry, I can not quite determine if the pads are still all there, since you said one was totally off, you can always try to bypass the battery. Again, you will have to have the right equipment and the right skills to do that. Hope this helps, good luck.
