I will be in Vienna to visit the Linuxwochen and could resolder the
socket onto the board (if the pads are still there) but since I do not
know what usually breaks (solder joint, pcb-pad, ...) and how to open
the device you probably need to assist me in these two points. Infos
on both can probably be found on the Internet somewhere...
