@norbi does the second last image show where the connector used to be? Your English is fine, probably better than our Polish:-)

The last image shows where the micro usb was, this little lines on bottom. The second last shows 3 Wires, Red, Black and blue, Getting out from battery, and the Black that is at left shows Mini Jack. I dont know nothing about electricity, i know only get together wires, to solder it.

by

if you can post me this picture or something, i can do new more precisy to show all of the components.

by

@norbi yep got it now. Is there any chance you can zoom in with your camera? when I enlarge the picture it becomes to unclear. It looks like there are traces that are visible....

@norbi not a good idea just connecting it to the battery. You are bypassing the whole charging circuitry which controls rate of charge/ over charging etc. I would connect it to where the old port is. Post some imgaes that show the whole PCB and the micro USB port.

Update (11/04/2016)

I'd connect the positive to where the positive from your connector was.

@norbi sorry but was busy last couple of days and only briefly paid ifixit a visit. I attached an image where I would connect the positive wire to. The negative should be okay to connect to the battery wire.

by

Could you send me image when to connect the second wire? i will be very happy :) because battery has 3 wires.

by

Thank you SO MUCH You are the best Bro! I found the negative it was black. SPeaker is charging Thank you again!
