I would first try to clean the logicboard with rubbing alcohol, check all the connectors for burn signs.

bypassing an ic is never a good idea - apart from being useful.

sometimes the contacts are "only" bruned away and can be painted back on with conductive silver (but thats not easy at all - but possible)
