That black wire is one of the signal pads, it's connected to the bottom (in your pic) of R2, next to the first pad you lost. You should be able to see the track pretty clearly. This is the pad that I lost, and soldering on to that resistor is a challenge.
Be careful not to overheat the resistor as its easy to damage components that small. If you find the white wire in the middle of the board (between the red wires) is getting in the way you could remove it and attach it off board to the black wire coming from the battery, as they are connected.
Good luck!

Seeing as this seems to be a common problem here are some close ups of the board marked up with the pin designations and coloured lines showing alternative solder positions.
