For some reason I can't see the pictures. Maybe blocked by the hackathon network I'm currently on.

Someone posted a very useful how-to SOMEwhere in this thread that should help. It's a pain to find but a joy to behold.

In a nutshell, you want a tiny drop of epoxy under the bottom of the connector. Make sure the PCB and connector are clean. As for solder, you need to solder the usb contacts to the corresponding pads on the PCB. This will not be easy (I failed on one device). You'll need to mask off the PCB real estate between the pads to prevent creating a short-circuit. This is precision work not for the faint of heart.
