I've just bought a very bad quality D1 mini board. While soldering pins, I made rookie mistakes and I had to desolder, then (really bad) pads got detached from pcb. I certainly don't have experience replacing pads and keeping through connected holes right, so I figured why not connecting ESP23F directly to JP, bypassing PCB tracks.
By simply visually checking the tracks on the PCB, I can't tell if all ESP12F pins are directly and one-to-one connected to each pin hole, moreover, the top side of the board seems simple enough but I'm not so sure about the bottom side.
So, I definitely can send the board to the trash and buy a new one (why not, they are cheap even in Argentina), but where is the fun in all that?
That's why I'm asking for any advice on how to solder JP given the missing pin hole pads.
I'm might be wrong, but if this can be performed by soldering ESP12F JP to pin hole/headers on the top side, and soldering the unconnected tracks in the bottom side with thin wires to the right JP on the top, it would be helpful to know which are the correct connections.
