    Hello all, I'm replacing the speaker on my iPad 3 when the connector came off and damaged a solder pad. The solder pad which is fourth from the right. I have soldering skills, microscope, etc.

    My question is, does one of those copper circles connect to this 4th pin so that I can jump a fine wire back to the molex connector? If so, which copper circle is it? The one next to what appears to be a surface mount capacitor?
    Anyone know how I would jump this back to the connector?

    Thank you, but it's not the connector that I need, I need to know how to jump a broken solder pad, if possible. Otherwise I think I may need to buy a new logic board. I saw a thread where someone mentioned jumping a pin from the connector to one of those round, copper pads. I just don't know if this is possible, also which pad is connected to pin #4

    This question is best suited for ifixit.com or even better ifixit protalk forum. Look for user Jessabethany at that site. She'll be able to steer you in the right direction.
