    So my left shift button and power button was kinda screwed after trying to clean it with Dettol spray (don't ask why), which I managed to resolve. But a month later my power button stopped working (which is connected to the keyboard). So I removed the bottom case and tried to jump start it by short circuiting it, which was eventually successful, but i had to disconnect the keyboard connector, which meant i couldn't log on. Afterwards i ended up frying the fuse and diode just adjacent to the battery connector as well as this metal teeth. Am I able to resolder or reimplant these components?

    I will attach photos shortly...

    I suggest that you need a Macbook that you don't need to open the case. Get a replacement A1342 or newer Mac and migrate the data.

    Here is the photo, of the damage done near the battery connector

    This is when i started short circuiting this area with a screwdriver to get it to boot up (though I was successful at one point, but i removed the keyboard ribbon cable so i couldn't log on lol)

    This is what it should look like if it was undamaged
