    I am looking to pick up a WiiKey, since it looks like the best chip out yet. I do have one question. Does the WiiKey require an on/off switch. In all of the installation pictures I have seen, I have yet to see one with an on/off switch. Is this controlled through the chip itself? Can this be booted on and off by the way you turn on your Wii (IE: On and Eject at the same time).

    On the installation diagram all I see are the 5 solder points, and was just wondering if there are any extra. Or if there was any additional info. I have done some searches and found nothing on this topic. If I missed something I apologize.

    I appreciate any help that you guys can provide.

    on/off switch is NOT needed since the chip contains a recovery mode, so you cannot brick it.
