    Follow the trace on the circuit board, and solder directly to the IC. Not recommended if you can't solder well.

    If I'm not mistaken, you should trace where the pad goes and try to solder the wire there.But I might be mistaken, so you should probably wait for what a couple more people say.

    thats what i was about to do but i don't see how thats possible because the IC is incredibly small to solder to and i would probably bridge two traces together unless im missing something

    If you don't think you can do it, DON'T. A person who knows how to solder and has the right tools can do this without too much trouble.

    If you bridge several pins, or heat damage the chip, you will be sorry.
