this logic board can be repaired?

Hello I have this logic board an iphone 4s, I wonder if it is possible to fix or not. I think I got some liquid and caused more serious damage because some parts appear to be burnt and melted

Shimamoto, how far do you want to go with that? First off you do want to clean the board properly. Use a high grade 90%+ isopropyl alcohol and a soft brush, Remove all EMI shields, then clean the board according to this guide. It is apparent that you have had a major short circuit and I would surmise that you have some significant component failure. Once you have it cleaned, post some more "clear" close ups of the damaged area. Possible to fix? Probably. Just a matter of how much time, money and energy you want to spend on it.

Shimamoto, how important is this board to you and where are you located? Again, you do have some major damage on this board . Amazingly enough it must have some interesting liquid damage and I am also convinced that it is "toast". Email me for an idea that I am kicking back and forth right now. My email is in my user profile. Just click on my avatar

Oh, yikes. That does look like some serious damage. I would check Jessa Jones, at iPad Rehab. She knows quite a bit about this sort of thing

Whoa. That board has been on fire. Since flames exceeds soldering temperatures, there is no way that board is worth putting any time into it. It would be suitable as a donor board for other projects only in my opinion
