So was installing my first mod chip & was soldering a wire to the D0 point on the backside of the mobo & made a horrible mistake. When the solder was starting to cool, my hand twitched & somehow the solder point on the board stuck to the wire, which I was holding & completely tore from the board. The ends of the traces peeled up slightly on both sides. Ugh! I managed to use the D0 point on the topside to ground  & run chip. My issue now is that I can boot chip by holding power down but when booting normal I get flashing red-green. Not a huge deal but would like to repair if possible.

can you post a pic of the damage... there are several trace repair videos on youtube .  mostly because of clock cap issues, but the technique can be applied anywhere really...  if it pulled the trace up in the middle, just get a good scratch brush, some 30 AWG hookup wire and jumper the damaged area.
