      Hi Frank,

      The only sort of damage I can see you could do, apart from physically damaging the PCB tracks in the process of soldering the wires back on, would be if you accidentially connected the red wire (USB +5v) to either pin 2 or 3, as you would probably have destroyed the zener diode D2 or D3 as there would have been no series resistor to limit the current.

      A quick resistance check with the USB lead disconnected from the PC no power applied to the v9.0 and remove the ATtiny chip U2, should show you if either of these are short circuit.

      The leads from the USB lead short be red, White, then a spare pin, Green and finally Black.

      With the USB lead plugged in, you should be able to measure +5v between pins 8 and 4 of U2.

      The only other problem I can see would be if you connected the 5v lead to the ground pin which might have damaged your PC USB port.

      It should not be too difficult to resolve the problem.
