    From connecting and disconnecting the battery plug a pin broke on the power connector on the board. What points can i solder the battery to on the other side of the board?

    I was able to use the pads under the connector. Thanks.

    So i soldered to a + pad and a - pad and then combined both red wires to the + and both black top the - from the battery. Then I soldered the gray to a pad the trace led to. I'm having no issues. This was the culprit that making me pull my hair out of my head. I could not consistently boot the Trinket M0 to push the payload. Installed on my other 3 switches with no problem at all. Found out the left most post in the connector on the board was truncated to about 25% length and the one to the left ~50% so im guessing this was negatively impacting the circuitry, got to the point where i couldn't boot in to OFW.. after soldering to the board and hot gluing the wires down I'm 100% up and running. Now of course I'm suddenly getting black screen when booting with Atmosphere but I'm guessing i need t format from fat32 to exfat since using a SDcard from my other consoles formatted Exfat boot right into the system after the Atmoshpere splash.
