VDD I can jump from another pin. REF IN, however, I do not see another input on the IC for this.
Is there any other place on the motherboard I can use for the REF IN?

But I have advice that could eventually help.
If you have ruined a pad - that sucks. Don't have answers for you there.
Guessing you were suffering an E76 or no internet connectivity. You might be able to remove some the SMD resistors near the area of the ICS chip - to restore your console to the Dashboard.
Done it once on a console that had no internet and a BCM.

By any chance do you know which resistors you need to remove?

R1B5 .... R1B4 .... R1B11 .... R1B12 and R1C1
Its been a few months now and the customer has the console back.
Just guessing - but I'm thinking R1B11 ,R1B12, B10 and/or B9 are key. Those resistors bridge traces that run to the Southbridge
Could be all those need removing. Or it could be just a single does the trick.
You might want to consult with RDC before doing. He's a master moderator guru here

Would that be my console Wilgo? BTW it works like a charm...
No - cuz yours should be able to go on the Internet and Live. I completely replaced the ICS chip in yours. Nothing more.
The one in which I removed resistors - started as a BCM controller chip. Tried a conversion over to ICS. But before that, the replacement BCM chip would not respond properly.
Then I tried the conversion. Put it into more error. Left the ICS in place. Then I removed some resistors. Then the error cleared. But they have no internet access.
I had even replaced the ethernet hub, before removing those resistors. Their internet connection route was just shot
This one belonged to someone else. Brad in Davison, MI
