so i have a slim that had a broken drive gear so i replaced it but i didnt know how to solder well enough and burnt the traces on the wires about 6 months ago .i want to eventually glitch the slim but i figure if i cant solder the drive i cant solder nand x...etc...but i want to fix the drive before i get the jtag tools...so i had a few questions in the picture ive included you will see the burnt contacts and i tried to get what traces where left shine but i checked them with a multimeter and they all still connect so question 1.does it look like i need to add the (copper i think)trace?and question2.there are 6 contacts but only 5 wires it looks like there are 2 contacts under MGND i have to put the solder drop over both is this correct ?AND I DO NOT HAVE MY DRIVE KEY (will get the probe as soon as i get money)will extracting my drive key be still possible without those wires soldered.thank you for your time

the whole point for this is to increase my soldering skills ive let this drive sit while i practice soldering i just completely removed and fixed all wires for a wii drive plus many random pcb's. i am fully confident in my soldering abilities i just need to know what to do.i have a multimeter and check every trace.

no disrespect but i kno how to google which in my first postt i said i found 6 traces that you can see. that seemed kind of odd when google showed 5.look at the picture there are 6 points. 1 with a bit of solder and 5 exposed..................I think i can figure it out from here

OMG did a blind man try soldering these?
