Battery Cable Connector Solderable? Board Useless?

I've been repairing various things in this ipod video a few times and I apparently broke the battery connector.

Yes. I looked at other articles. I know I can possibly replace the connector (my question) or the board.

Take a peek at my photos. My connector pulled up a piece of the board and I was wondering if the board is now garbage or is it salvageable? I see it was one of the printed circuits that pulled up so unsure if this can be simulated w solder or a small wire.

Jim Sikora, yes you tore of the solder pads. It does look like there is still a bit of solder left, so I would try to re-tin it and solder a new connector to the board. The battery connector is available at places like this.
