I have a v1.0 xbox. I was tring to solder the jumper located in this pic:

I had the solder on it but then moved it a bit, and apparently with my cruddy iron it had cooled off and pulled the trace along with the solder! *gasp* Is there a way to fix this? I soldered the bottom of the board with no problem. I also checked and the xbox still boots. Thanks for any help.

If I am looking at this correctly do I have to solder a jumper wire red as shown on the left hand side of the picture to repair the r7d3 point that I screwed up??

I did the same thing. I ended up using a conductive pen.

Pickup a Circuit Works CW2200STP Conductive Pen. It's like a marker with silver conductive ink. Worked like a charm!

Here is one place i found that has them.
