@fixlab excellent job in finding this. Amazingly enough it took a year for somebody to catch this error. I did correct the original answer.

crwdns2893770:0crwdnd2893770:0crwdne2893770:0

No problem ;)

@fixlab I have the same problem. The pads number 5, 15, and 17 are missing. Colud you help me with the schematic picture? Where could I connect the missing pads? Thanks!

gabor, pin 5 is nc, pin 15 is ground and 17 you can connect to the large cap to the left side of the connector. on the right side of the cap

@iphoneszerviz, did you manage to repair this? Can u post a pic or explain a little what you had to do exactly? We are facing a similar prblem ourselves with the exact same pad ripped off during a connector replacement

Iphoneszerviz Szeged,

try to use best or recommended rework tools when you touching high tech logic boards. Here i can see one path Path damaged on your logic board.

you have two options,

1) Change the new logic board

2) Path modification : check the path destination and you may have to connect them physically

All the best!
