We will need more information:

1.       What line is shorted?

2.       What is the diode reading?

3.       When you say boot-looping does it show the apple logo?

4.       How long does it stay powered before looping?

I would consult with a board specialist such as Jessa from iPad Rehab. If I’m not mistaken, it’s not repairable on the XR but I’m not a board specialist.
