    Hi Guys , my brother was fitting the Wiinja mod this morning , and all was fine up to the number 5 pad install point, he tried to solder the 5 point and the pad came off on the mainboard, i have done several Xbox and there is nearly always an alternate solder point , could anyone tell me if this is the case with the Wii point 5

    thanks for any help

    This is happening a lot! The best alternative is to trace the line back to the Panasonic chip and solder directly to the leg of the chip unfortunately! Just be careful not to bridge any other legs.

    thanks mate , i will go that for him this afternoon , he is decent at soldering (i am better though , teehee) , the other 4 points are spot on

    if anyone reading this could post alt points , i think it would be really useful for people

    thanks for your help [​IMG]

    I had the same problem, and ended up soldering to the panasonic chip leg,

    trace back from point 5 under a magnifying glass, and mark it off with a piece of electrical tape on either side, then carefully solder to the leg. its really really fricken tiny, but i got lucky and it worked.

    May i ask why people are having troubles with the 5th solder point? Does the pad lift up because the soldering iron has been left on for to long? Just curious because i will be installing a chip with in the next few weeks.

    Cheers

    i guess they use a heavy soldering iron like 30w+, i worked with a 15w and had no problems.

    that may well be the case i think , my brother used a 30w iron, i told him to use 15w the tit [​IMG]


    has anyone come across alternate points for the 5.6.7 points for the Wiinja install (apart from the legs on the chip), it would be really helpful if someone could post a picture if they have alternate points , or a piture of the legs that need to be soldered on the chip for the 5.6.7 points
