Soldering pads ripped off while doing serial jailbreak

OMG, the soldering pads are so tiny and both were ripped off during soldering. It seems that the connections have been destroyed.

Please is there any way to rescue it? Thanks!!!

Not so quick answer: yes, by buying a new device and not soldering it.
There are serial pads on the other side of the logic board too.

Let me find my images.

There isnt enough room to leave them hooked up and put the kindle back together again, but for reasearch and one-time jailbreaking, it will work.

Here are my images of hooking up to those:

Do you mean you ripped the pads off of the backside of the board also?
