Thank you for that.


If you go to @jessabethany you will find her email address there and she is likely the best person here to answer your question. Micro soldering is definitely her thing

@birdbrain not exactly sure what you are asking. The pads as well as the components are outlined in the schematic

As for how to solder it, you will need a proper rework station, a good microscope and steady hands:-) If you have never soldered small stuff like this, your 5S may not be a good place to practice. you should consider having someone else do it for you. Yes those scratches can cause problems if they get shorted out. I usually try and cover those with non-conductive glue/paint.
