Accidentally Pulled Off Serial Pad

Hi all, very impressed with all the smart people here and want to thank everyone for their contributions!

I decided to attempt the serial jailbreak on my PW3, in the process of checking my solder joint I accidentally pulled off the Tx serial pad. Guess I pulled too hard

Is there a way to fix this or am I doomed to never complete the jailbreak?

Check in the thread for this model, many have multiple serial pad locations.

Thanks Dave!
I did lots of searching and thanks to Coplate's research here: https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...2&postcount=40

I was able to use the contact points on the back of the board to successfully jailbreak!
