How to jump solder pads

Does anyone know where I can find a Tut on how to jump solder pads on a 3rd gen ipod touch, I can't find anything, or even just some images would be good to get me started.

Thanks in advance

Steve what exactly are you looking for when you say jump solder pads?


I have 3 ipod touches and all of them have the pads ripped off so I need to know how I can still get the power to them with a jumper wire or some other method, any ideas ? Cheers Steve

From solder pads on iPod Touch 3g battery replacement

If the pad has been completely ripped off the board, the only options would be:

1) Find the trace the pad normally connects to, scrape off some lacquer and re-attach to a new point. or 2) Replace the whole board. You should be okay with attaching the cable to the race or the next point where the trace leads to. You need a good magnifying lamp, a steady hand and good equipment. You should also check on here Anyway to reattach solder pads? and here is a great general guide

So give it a try and see what you come up with.....:-)
