@kevkas, Personally, I would try to run a jumper and cover it with a small amount of Solder Mask... Lots of plastic with risk of melting new SIM tray, so add a bit of Low Melt first so you don't have to use a higher temp :)

I never made a jumper how that works? And from where to where?


@kevkas, I made a drawing to explain what I meant and put in original answer. Go to this video: at about 4:13:00 to see Chris run a jumper


Thank you very much for the answer. So i use then only the new wire as a pad and leave the broken pad away? Of just solder de broken pad on the wire?


You could do either, but if you try to solder a wire to pad and it shifts on you, you'd have another problem. Just choose a very fine wire for jumper and put solder mask on it to 1. Hold it still, and 2. To keep it from shorting against ground or near by component. If you are careful and precise. should be successful :)


I see the video , nice to see. But i have to connect the wire only on the 2 points that you show on de picture? Or i have to go to the other side of the logic board with the wire?
