[assuming you have the Rev 2.4] If you look closely between the two right-most 6-pin white connectors, I'd bet you would see evidence of burning.
Those two connectors are basically a "mirror" of each other. So the "outside" pins are connected together, then the next ones, and so on. To put it another way, if you assume they are numbered 1 through 6 from left to right, then its like this:
pin 1 on the left connector connects to pin 6 on the right
pin 2 to pin 5
pin 3 to pin 4
pin 4 to pin 3
pin 6 to pin 1
Using a multimeter, you can figure out which pair is broken and solder a small wire to re-connect them. Its probably 2/5.
ps. You can thank the SP board for the fact your "radio still works without it though". That burned trace acted as a fuse, protecting your main board from certain (but repairable) death.
