Ok first off this may sound really stupid, does to me anyway, but I'm doing an Install for my sister on a 1.6b motherboard (my first 1.6) and I kinda fucked up when I was doing the LPC rebuild (cold head didnt want to work quite right) so I decided I would take off the LPC rebuild board and in the process I pulled up a trace Line. The trace that I pulled up is the LAD2. I think that I pulled it off upto the 2nd solder point (its between the header pins between the 3rd and 4th from the bottom, or top not sure which it would be). But to make a really long story just a little shorter I took the LCP board off because I'm a lot more comfertable doing a wire install rather than working with the board so I was wondering how I would go about reparing the trace. Would I solder a wire from where I pulled it up to where It was broken, and then do a wire install as I normally would?

Yea, cold heat is sort of like an arc welder, it could possilby send a bad current through the board so you mihg tnot want to keep using it.
However, as for the trace, you can repair that with a Circuit Repair Pen from Radio Shack, its about 12 bucks and takes 24 hours to cure but it gets the job done.
As far as where to solder it, i would use the other end of the trace the other 'o' that is on the board. The pen can only restore the electric current to the trace, but you can't solder to it. You can also use a jumper method, wire from each side of the broken trace.
I had a pulled trace by accident and fixed it. I bought a DIY PCB (Printed Circuit Board) and some jumpers and got a friends xbox working for about a year now without problems. _________________ XBOX v1.6
