v3r dead - need advice

Hello, i now own my customers v3 after doing a testpoint unlock tonight
its a v3r R4515_G and unlock procedure went as it looks like it should.
Establish connection to handset
FLASH Interface established ok
Read handset bootcore version
Bootcore version on handset: 0300
Sending RAMDLD to handset
RAMDLD started ok in handset
Read Flash chip type and ID
Flash chip ID detected: 0x0020880E
Direct unlock method selected
Started unlocking sequence
Power down handset
Unlocking sequence completed ok

however, when i put phone back together, that stupid little spring clip inside lower section of phone pushed off one of the shields and loosened
a little resistor looking think ( pictured ), then me stuffing arround with it made it come completely off.

before the little ic came off completely the phone wouldn't do anything.
no bootloader, no nothing. nor will it now.

the phone is not detected at all.

should i try and solder this thing back on ( very small ) or am i wasting my time.

Judging form the pic, it appears you have applied too much heat on the PCB as I see components are not sitting in original condition hence you will be wasting your time..

But I suppose it doesn't hurt to place that component back on and give it a go.

I havent heated anything yet, this is a pic straight from after shield being removed, I havent actually tried to solder anything yet!

its possible that the other components that are a bit off line may have been moved by the shield coming loose also?

Try to reball you flash IC and then to rehot your PCB from another side, near power controller. For me it worked!
And do not forget to make jumper (in your photo its in white round).
