So basically my little brother broke my Xim Apex today when I let him use it and one of the 4 usb pins snapped.

I pulled off the usb and when I stick the 3 pins back in it the Xim works just fine. No drop of signal or weird control.







What are my options? Soldering?

Dunno anything about soldering but if you do just start using a male to female USB extender so it doesn't happen in the future

Long story short, I suck at soldering and I broke it for good. I guess I will have to buy another one  :(

I'm sorry to hear about that. We do offer repairs but I'm not sure if they take XIMs that have been worked on like this. It couldn't hurt to ask if you would like to request a repair using the link below.
