    First, I attempt to open my Wii. Two screws were stripped.

    One screw I took a soldering iron to, it looks decent, and I can open it now. The other one I drilled through.



    Then, with 20 minutes of soldering experience, I soldering in my modchip. It was extremely easy.

    Anyone else find that a bit anticlimactic after the title and all?
    I was hoping for something along the lines of:

    I didn't have any screwdrivers so I cut the Wii open with a steak knife.
    Then I couldn't remember where the chip was supposed to go... But then in walks Chuck Norris and a swift roundhouse later the chip is embedded into the GC memory card slot. Success at last! I go to thank Chuck but he has mysteriously vanished.
    Afterwards when I try the Wii it still doesn't work, I figure I have to upgrade the cooling on it (those Wiis get damn hot) so I smothered it in arctic silver premium plus limited edition poop gloop and smear some vaseline over the drive lense for good luck.
    Obviously it's working fine now but who'd of thought Chuck Norris would have forgotten the poop gloop!?
