Fixing traces that small is doable, but if you've taken that thing apart for a reflow or reball that will need to be done prior to repairing the traces as the heat from that would just wreck the repair work.http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?showtopic=684774

RDC is the main for this. Repairing traces is hard though if they are that small, i usually just solder a wire to the via since im not RDC certified yet.

Not sure how you managed to do that! As for your question it is repairable by someone with enough skill. It's not ready for the bin quite yet.

ive damaged traces getting the xclamps off way back in the day, never as bad as that though, thats the worst ive seen TBH
can be fixed with good soldering skills
invest in a carbon fibre pen and clean up the entire length of the scratch where the traces are cut, only part of the ground pads needs to be connected again
some of the traces look like they have been hit but not severed may only need touched up

Main trouble I see is second pic, 7 small traces. It's possible to fix but very hard. I've got one hear with 4 ram traces cut. I tried to fix but traces so thin my wire wouldn't stick. going to the vias might be possible. Masking tape is helpful to prevent solder shorting to other wires when so small and close together. exposing one trace at a time until done and then re-laminate with clear nail polish or something.
