    No, you can't.

    Wiikey uses the ATmega8; YAOSM uses PICs.

    So if I were to get this:
    http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.12714

    I just have to program it with YAOSM with the programmer and use the little thing that is the on the acual clip as a modchip?

    EDIT: Does that need soldering?

    Yes.

    You'll need a computer with a serial port, and a mini-USB cable to give the programmer some power.

    No soldering at all.

    I have both of those, but on the site, it says to use YAOSM i need to solder 5 pins or something as seen on :

    That's the original YAOSM-diagram. You would have to use this if you were to use a normal pic. With the Free-clip there is no soldering involved (except maybe to remove your wiikey / you can't use both chips at once). The wii-clip site really is unclear in this point...

    I have already removed the wiikey but what do you mean by the original yaosm diagram? The newer version doesnt require those pins anymore?

    The PIC is includet in the Feeclip, as seen here: http://www.wii-clip.com/images/FREE-Clip-01.jpg
    So you don't have to solder the PIC anywhere, as you would normally have to do without the Free-Clip, that's what I meant.

    You just need to flash the newest YAOSM two LED hex for the 12F683 on it, put the free-clip on your drive-controller and you are done.

    Btw. if I may ask. Why did you get rid of your Wiikey? I mean YAOSM is the better chip, no doubt about that, but if you have a working chip why get a new one?

    Thank you for the answers! I'm going to buy one soon ^-^
    Slowking, could you write me a n00bish tutorial if you have time, that would be nice ^^
    Like the programs and things I need to use to flash it

    Theres no PIC 12F683 with that pack by the looks of it,its just the clip for a PIC 12F683 & the programmer,you would need to get hold of the PIC (there dirt cheap probably about $1 tops) and you would have to solder it to the clip.The original diagram is for the solder points that you would use if you didnt have a clip http://nintendo-scene.com/wp-content/uploa...m_schematic.jpg

    Don't confuse him. The 12F683 is in the Clip, as seen here: http://www.wii-clip.com/images/FREE-Clip-01.jpg [​IMG]

    probably not. The programmers won't work with those converters most of the time.
    If you want to program YAOSM you need to find a computer with a serial port. Aren't there any old computers around in your house?
