It’s hard to say from the pictures but if the device is boot-looping, then the standoff (leg) probably damaged some copper traces on the logic board when it was broken. If that’s the case, this will require a micro-soldering repair and is not DIY.

Can you post a better picture, up close so that we can see more detail of where the standoff was?
