If you have damaged the traces to the connector like I did, then installing a new connector is not possible or extremely difficult. All is not lost. Simply cut off the connector to an old USB cord, strip the wires, and solder them onto the board as shown in the picture. Cut a slot into the black piece where the connector was and reassemble.
Hot glue the opening where your new cord is coming out to prevent movement of the wires and cord. I have tested the controller and it lights up and fully functional again.
