Good photo of the damaged area of the circuit board please.

Somewhere here, I posted a link to a "HowTo" make a DIY hot air soldering tool - the thing you need for SMD parts.
It's a kindle paperwhite.

I'll take a photo tomorrow. But to describe it simply, the components I've circled in blue have been taken off, leaving only the solder pads. What components are they? Decoupling capacitors?

Another question - I have bricked the paperwhite. It hangs at the kindle boot screen and I get nothing out of it USB-wise. The cause of this error is me flashing a non-booting system.img to it via fastboot. Any way to fix it without the serial connector?
