Iphoneszerviz Szeged,

try to use best or recommended rework tools when you touching high tech logic boards. Here i can see one path Path damaged on your logic board.

you have two options,

1) Change the new logic board

2) Path modification : check the path destination and you may have to connect them physically

All the best!
