    Let's say a chip does come out that is 100% region free and upgradeable - is there any company that is offering an installation service?

    There is absolutely no way on earth that I would attempt to solder my own - I would definitely get it wrong. Just curious - as it stands I have no desire to chip my wii - the tech is very new and I can't solder

    UK company, I doubt it. Small local electronics shop on the other hand: not a problem. Bring whatever chip you want and some install instructions (you can probably leave wire and solder alone) and a token sum (£10 or so but work it out prior). It may be an overnight thing but many places will do it there and then.

    Alternatively speak to someone in a pub/similar location, chances are someone works with computers, automotive (you should see the electronics in a modern car if you doubt it) or electronics or someone you know knows someone........
