Cart-only FB2?

Recommended Posts

Okay, here's the deal. I got a little two overzealous when modding my FB2 and pulled up a few solder pads. Obviously this severs the connection from the "big thing" and the "little thing" and now the built-in games won't work. Specifically I pulled (pins coresponding to the cart connector) up 2-5 and 13.

I find other points to solder to, but there's really no good spot on the board to repair the trace.

I'm going to assume that one IC on the board is the "2600" and the other is the flash-RAM containing all the games. Whatever they are the connection between the two has been severed. My question is can I still run cartridges off this broken unit? Or will nothing work if the connection between these two blobs is broken?
