    Wiikey fitted by total novice, wish me luck

    Hi all, i'm a new posted but have been lurking a researching for a while. I got my Wii just before Xmas and recently started to look into the Wiikey. Well i took the plunge and bought one, and all the soldering gear (I didn't know how to solder!)

    Anyway, I've had 1.5 hrs practicing my soldering skills on really small contacts, well what I though were really small, and then I took my Wii apart and nearly died! Anyway I persevered and and fitted the chip just 10 minutes ago! I turned it on and it still plays my original Wiisports so that's a good sign, i'm burning the Wiikey setup disk to test the chip now

    I wish you luck, and I hope they don't make an update restricting mods.

    I think I am going to keep my wii mod-free. I dont want nintendo releasing an update that blocks the chip, I dont want to void the warranty and I dont want to risk my wii breaking.
    It's cool that you installed it and everything, good luck

    well i've just tested it with a backup and it works! It didn't work the first time but on closer inspection the wire on point 6 had come loose. all screwed back together now.

    I'm not sure how Nintendo could release an update to stop the chip working as it's pretty transparent in the way it works and bridges points on the DVD player, but I'm sure they can find a way (luckily the chip is flashable so the chip makers can work around any potential block)

    They will, btw moding is 100% illegal in the US. Infact if wiichat admin get a hold of your IP, you could be fined.

    That was for PAL Wiis trying to play backups of Super Paper Mario NTSC.

    It updated the firmware on the PAL Wii to be NTSC, and made the Wii's firmware high on mushrooms, then, when it crashed after being high, it tried to smoke shrooms again, but that liiiiitle chance you can die from smoking shrooms..

    It happened.

    Take note to use good media such as Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim at slow speeds such as 4x for 8x rated. I had a fair number of games that had to be redone with label's and all so I could have discs that didn't decided to randomly DRE in the middle of playing. I was using a quality plextor burner (px-760a), that I was able to burn them at 18x. Which in the end was a no go.
