I DID IT!!! without smd capacitor
disassembling until the modem circuit si uncovered is a real bitch! took 
ma over an hour to get the can off!
the good part: you dont need an smd capacitor!!!
you need a capacitor which is small enough to fit in the gsm antenna and 
some of these lacquer wires (which are used in unductor coils)
solder a wire to c1009 (+) the lacquer wire easyli fits through the can 
even when colosed, colder it to the capacitor (+) solder another wire to 
gnd of the capacitor
solder this wire anywhere where you can find gnd (i used the drilled 
holes at teh edge od teh mainboard)
place the capacitor in teh gsm antenna, close everything and you are 
done, no smd capacitor needed, no smd soldering station needed.
it works!!!
standbytime now is 100 hours which means for me 2 and a half day of 
typically phone usage total uptime till i need to charge.
