Hello to anyone reading this,

This crack in the board happened after it went through the clothes washer, and it was gf's phone so i feel really horrible about it .

Anyways i have yet to even find out what this piece of the board is named. It's cracked in two places on the vertical part of the board that leads down

to where the usb connector is located (everything else appears looks ok just these two cracked pieces). I'm just looking for any help at all, hoping

someone might be able to offer any help at all, or if it's even possible to salvage. I have an uncle that is got a good amount of experience in

soldering/electrical stuff and can handle the soldering/fixing since im still a bit of a noob, but he was unsure about how to go about it since it would

require some very small wires to fix the connection traces, so if anyone can offer any advice or instruction on mending i would greatly appreciate and

can send some BTC for your help. I attached 2 images, and can supply more if you need more detail.

So far the only thing i can think of is to get a broken board and remove the part i need at the easiest location it could be re-attached... no clue if that easier area exists though..

Why not just bring the phone to some phone repair shop (or a samsung specialized one), if available in your region. They should be able to repair it (if the price is ok with you), or be able to sell you the part you need (order it).

**It looks like even some chip is chopped... at the very least, probably too much water damage on them. You don't want to do this repair by yourself (or you uncle)... there are cases of phone components getting too hot and on fire if there are faulty wires/connectors.
****Definitely a new board is required.

Yeah seems like a new board might be the only solution..
can anyone tell me what exactly would be compatible? This was a verizon note 2 sch-i605 gt-n7100 rev 1.0.
Thanks all
