    so if you DONT want to do the quicksolder method and use wires, do u still place it directly above the solder points, or can you place it wherever?

    also, is there anyone who has done this method who has pictures/links to what it should look like?
    or even a guide to installing it.

    thanks

    I didn't make a guide of how to install the CycloWiz. But this has some stuff that will be helpfull.

    Anyways. Yes you still place the CycloWiz in the same place if you want to.

    Your going to want to wire install if you want all the features it has anyways.

    2 Wires to the Switch which it shows in that guide. 1 Wire to the Wii's reset button. And then you quick solder the remaining 5 spots on the CycloWiz.

    Quick soldering the 5 spots is easiest and more ensured of a secure connection. It's not hard to de-solder the chip later if you want to.

    thanks for the link.
    question though, what is the point of the wire to the reset button if you have an on/off switch?
    holding reset disables the chip temporarily, but isn't that the same as flipping the switch to off?

    It's so you can turn off the modchip if your Wii doesn't read games with it or something.
