    Uhh try taking a picture the other way. [​IMG]

    EDIT: Sense your Wii isn't a D2B it probably will not have cut legs.

    Its a DMS chip. I don't think those ever have cut legs...

    You're good to go (most likely).

    Good luck!

    Ah, the legs are cut on the other side of the chip. Same side as the soldering points.

    You have to grind in that chip you just took pictures of, the one that says 'GC2-DMS' IF you have cut legs. If you don't than you can proceed with a normal install.

    Also, no problem [​IMG]
