Well Im pritty frustrated, Everything was going great till we got to the soldering. (Tip - Never use a 'cold' soldering gun, especialy for tiny wires).

I basicly destroyed pin 42/40/38 in the process of using a really crappy soldering gun. then I tried to so scrape the light blue wire that leads to pin 38, and I think Ive scraped all the way to the ground...

I dont know what to do anymore, I guess I gotta get a touch screen controller? and temporarily just use one of the external usbs data in/out?

So pin 36 is still there, pin 38 is totally meted away, I scraped the light blue cover all the way to the ground, all I think I have is a super tiny circle that may not be grounded? Is there anywhere this pin 38 leads/ anywhere else I can solder to??

Im sorta commited cause the wireless usb is in place. Everything else went well, antenna look good just doesnt work.
I bought my own soldering gun that wouldnt have caused problems had I used it earlier today. Live and learn, no wifi for now...
Please help =[
