Serial Question

Hello everyone,

So, during my attempt to port android to the kindle, I succeeded in destroying the little resistors/capacitors near the serial port on my paperwhite (don't solder with caffeine shakes )

When I shorted the pads and connected the PW to a terminal emulator, all I got was garbled text. I guess the kindle needed those little components. Anyone have any idea how to fix this/what those components were?

...now to try to fix the nuked system image another way...
