I'm pretty sure that this is the only damage that has occurred to the device, since this is the heaviest part on the whole board, with least/smallest amount of pads.
actually, come to think about it, one other part has come off too, it's a 4-pin bga component, small as a grain of sand.
I'd ignore it and just wire past it (since it's only for ESD protection) but the pads are so small
Anyhow, it's a learning experience, so it'd be nice to succeed.
