impeck1, don't feel to bad :) seems to happen a lot. Check this question Soldering point for iPod touch 2nd generation battery and read through the answers. Take a good look at the image from Carpenter940 it should show you where you can make contact. Hope this helps, good luck.

Ya i found that and the one I screwed up is the right one and the 2 contact points below it i had it going to that but has so much slag when i tried to clip it off it ripped those off too ugggh so you can't get to the back side the chips are over the top so i have no idea if there is a diode or something there but hoping there was another random spot to solder too on the board.


Have you tried to follow the traces and see if you can repair those, or add a point to it? The other thing you could try and do, is to contact the user hectordtruong on here. He does board level repair on the iPhones and he might have a better solution.
