How to replace the U2 IC?


I bought an iPhone 5s that isn't powering on on eBay. I am pretty sure it is a U2 problem, I will confirm whether or not it is once it comes in the mail. If it is a U2 problem, how would I de-solder it and re-solder an new one?

If you use the solder flux (it's better), clean it flux with Isopropylic alcohol.
