  You can read around 5V up using a multimeter on the VBUS pin when the USB or wall charger is plug-in. 
* Re-solder the USB pin Connector, if necessary. (in other device these part is covered or glued, just remove it by a heat gun or safely just scratch it out)
* Check VBUS and GROUND pins O ohms resistors and replace if found damaged. 
* Reconnect or mend a jumper wire if there are USB pins line paths already broken, open or cut.

  6. Thanks for the post! Unfortunately I cannot reach the diode contacts (epoxy resin is too hard to remove), and the coil pads are too brittle to stand any serious soldering. Do you have any other alternative soldering points for D+ and D- ?

    Charging pins work perfect though, so thanks much, you saved my Xperia X10! :)
