Your lucky if you can get that repaired, but it will mean some soldering on the Pcb board

More likely the replacement of..

I can't see how on earth people can force that thing in upside down without even thinking, HEY, should this take so much effort? I mean, getting that thing in there upside down takes quite a bit of strength.. While it obviously shouldn't.

The SST chip will need to be removed the get the key, it has to be dumped with an external programmer now as the drive is shot. PM me if you're in the US and need help with it.

Get yourself a Jewellers eye loupe and look at the circuit board close up, there are several resisters that may pop b4 serious damage is done to the board. It is possible that one of these "zero" ohm resister popped so you may be able to bypass with a strand of wire to get the key if you were not able to get it or even get it working. If you dont know how to solder then you can always ask someone to try to get the key for you
