    i recently bought a wii and it has cut legs so i tried to dremel the chip but i grinded it down so much that the traces dissapeared. so i was wonderin if i can grind down the chip close to the center to see if the traces reappear.
    What do you guys suggest?

    I would suggest sending it to someone that has done a few of these before to see if it can be done and to do it right. It doesn't sound like it would be a wise move to continue yourself. No offense, but a whole lot of people have messed up their Wiis really bad because they kept thinking they could do it when they couldn't and don't go to a repair person until it's too late.

    yes you can dremel further and expose more of the pins, but i dont suggest you to try it, you could seriously f*ck up your wii.
    i'm not using the dremel method myself anymore, i just solder to the exposed nubs, its perfectly possible, done 10 of these cut wii's and all working fine.
