Background

Apparently there are two traces that have been interrupted which would allow serial port access.

These traces have been interrupted UNDER a SMD capacitor at position C54. Junker (see Yamasita's article/reference) discovered the way first[1]

Method

C54

The traces are visible under c54

Method 1: reconstruct the traces (on the backside)
