on another note /g/ isn't an indian tech support board, fuck off, also serves you right for buying low end HTC
>>
Either take it to a repair company or buy a spare/repair phone from ebay and transplant the component but it's probable that the mainboard was damaged so it's probably fucked beyond reasonably priced recovery.

>>45932463
Is it worth it to try and repair this part (damaging all the others) for the phone or is a mission impossible?

>>45932456
I thought a HTC was high end, my bad

>>45932510
It's probably fucked. Take it to a repair guy, get an estimate and decide if it's worth it.

Similar problem

I have a galaxy s4 with a broken digitizer, can I do anything interesting with it?

Hook up a mouse and keyboard using an OTG connector. If you're feeling like doing some real hacking, take one of these, design and 3D print a hinged assembly and turn the thing into a bitching subnotebook.

Is there luck in using tweazers or something similar to activate the power button circuit since this part still sticks out of the phone

In fact, fix the touchscreen and do it anyway.

That's likely a ground plane connector. Scrape away some of the insulation (very carefully) from the latticed bit of copper and solder some wire between it and the pad indicated here.

Some pics of the actual phone would be useful, along with details of how it happened.

Might be a fun project to get my feet wet in the world of /g/

If you made a particularly neat enclosure, I'm sure Hackaday would be interested. Bonus points for moving the touchpad (this won't be easy) to a position below the keyboard.
