So....I picked up a PCDuino8 from ebay, and the microusb jack is damaged to where I can't power it on. Is there any other way to power it, or am I left with a DOA board?

There are two micro USB ports, one is power port, another is OTG port, but they are all used as power port.

the one bad thing about using the OTG port is that it's directly beneath the regular USB port, so you can't use both at the same time, at least not with any of the USB cables I've tried.

It looks like I can use the DC IN pins on the board as well, as long as I supply a regulated 5v input.
