Default Fried ESC?

So....somehow i saudered the wrong polarity on my deans connectors and connected the + to the - on my esc and - to + on esc. (I know, I know.....dumbass mistake). Smoke billowed out instantly. When I changed my wiring and pluged it back in.....all of my servos and receiver work just fine but my motor will not beep or do anything. Do you think it just fried the esc? I dont think anything else could have been damaged, or am i wrong. Thanks. It was the align 6v esc.

The smoke is what makes it work, once the smoke comes out I highly recommend replacing it.
