    Can you do this with a double sided board?

    Pro tip: use insulated wire.

    No, seriously. Don't use stripped wires like shown in pictures above. You could easily damage and/or destroy circuit board and it's components and, if you are dealing with decent voltages, hurt yourself. Not to mention that it could start fires...

    Congratulations on fixing your circuit board! It could have been done a little easier by epoxy gluing the board together, then use very small lengths of wire only directly across each crack. If long wires are necessary then use thin insulated wire.

    Yes, right thing but I also wanted to make it flexible acting as shock absorbent,that's right that I could use insulated wire.

    It wouldn't need a shock absorber if you didn't keep breaking stuff :)

    "It is a common problem for us" ...

    This technique is really rather risky, even for low voltage. Because one day the bare wires will touch and break something.

    Try and reunite the pieces with epoxy. Where possible (blank board areas) epoxy a small piece of insulated board to straddle the joint. Then you will find it is mechanically stronger and you don't need much wire at all, if any.

    Simply scraping the track both sides of the split and running solder across will often repair the track.

    Oh, and if you are using single/double sided boards, this works. If they are multilayer (inner traces) you are in a world of pain.

    As a professional technician for over 25 years, I have many times had to repair broken television mainboards, usually around the heavy flyback transformer. I would highly suggest you stress to your readers that BARE wire should NEVER be used. You should ALWAYS use insulated wire for such long runs. The reason being that bare wire can (and will) short together and cause more damage to the circuit than rewiring a broken board can fix. Murphy's Law - Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.
