We had some of those at fix-party in Barcelona (first Fix party). As
you are doing the fix in a hurry, you could short-circuit some of the
small R's. But we didn't bork any Freerunner. LAter, on the "lab", we
checked the phones and they get fixed, adn works perfectly.

Check the circuit diagram carefully and you see a short circuit (i'm sure).
