    I got my Wii modded at Bowler's Computer Fair, Trafford Park, Manchester.

    £60 to supply and fit Wiikey while-u-wait. The computer fair is on every Saturday and it costs £3 to get in.

    The post thread is 'Is There Anybody in Bury Greater Manchester Area That Does Wii Modchip', so I dont know why people from far away are posting here.

    I am a long established installer in the Manchester Area and have been chipping playstations ever since the old grey ones came out. Ringo was the original chip guy in the Corn Exchange when it was blown up by the IRA. I have worked with him for many years since then and have modded all the consoles brought out since then.

    If your going to comment on any of the pictures on my website, post your picture of how it should be done. I think you will find your push on clip mods are ameteurish at best.

    All my modifications are professionally soldered and fully guaranteed.

    I used to do Bowlers computer fair but modchipping on there was banned by the council earlier this year. It used to be fantastic for modifications and computer bits, but times have moved on. You can save yourself the £3 entry and worry of leaving your console with someone you dont know.

    If anyone wants to have their Wii modded, In the Manchester area, let me know, I can do it while you wait.

    Funny that you think the soldering is 'high' as the picture quoted before is from above the modification. You cant tell the height of the solder points and there are no 'flux leaks'.

    I would never go on forums and put down somebody elses work. If you were a professional you wouldnt either. Post a pic of your work if you think your good.

    I think people modding in different coutries should be less critical of their counterparts in other coutries. Its not like you could be the leading modchip engineer in Manchester. I wouldnt come over there to fix watches and mobile phones.

    I bought a wiiclip + d2pro9 v3 off didineedthis which didn't work... It clipped on once, but I had a red light and eject issues, so I contacted him and was told to unsolder the J points and solder it to my board. I unsoldered the points, and then it wouldn't clip back on - it was too loose. I emailed him again saying it didn't work and was too loose, and was told it was my fault, and couldn't send it back.

    Not saying you should avoid though, just crappy customer service and a waste of £45.

    That is Correct. Not sure if you are trying to imply that we have some kind of fake account, and are trying to put you down? There is no need for that at all. But if you are, here are some installation pics anyway (just in case)

    I cant believe you are posting pics of Kynar wire install of the D2Ckey install. Do you know what the wire is made of?
    Ask yourself what is the best conductor of electricity. If Kynar is the first thing that springs to mind, then you need to back to school. You might also consult the periodic table of elements.

    Only in upsidedown land could they make money out of this kind of install.

    What are you using now. plastic clips?

    When I emailed Ozmodchips.com and asked them to stop posting ridiculous comments about my installation pics this was the reply:

    "Well, that wasn't me, there are a couple of ozmodchips employees that frequent forums."

    Any wonder why I think you might be over using the forum platform to promote your business.

    It is clear Mr Ozmodchips that you wish to put down other companies installing these modchips. But I dont understand your reasoning. I am not a competitor because you are on the other side of the world. Do you think that because my modifications dont look like yours they are somehow inferior? Dont you like the fact that I have not used pretty coloured wiring?

    I am quite happy to leave you doing your Kynar installations of modchips because it is a basic method of installation. It is only used because it is presoldered. Any muppet with a set of teeth can bite off the end and solder it to a bit of metal.

    The manufaturers of the PCB's on the consoles did not sit down and think 'i will make it all out of Kynar'. That would just be silly. they decided it must be made out of copper printed circuit board. The very same copper, in the form of wire, that I use in every installation of modchips I do.

    I challenge anyone to go to anyone qualified in electronics and ask him what is the best wire to use in an electronic installation. Knar is reserved for people who are just not good at soldering.

    Thanks Ozmodchips for posting the pics. I think my installation is better. But is that you or just some guy you pay to pretend he is you?

    Skedone, would love to see your installation pics. Glad that you know something about electronics.

    Infra red is certainly the in thing. If you post some nice pics, I am sure you will get some work off it. I am all for promoting good work and I pass work on to anyone who I think can do a good job. I am constantly getting calls from people not in my area wanting to take consoles to someone nearer. Yes I get calls from the USA!

    Hehe, you are reading into it too much buddy.
    All I said was that I didn't like your installation

    You dug up the thread after you probably googled yourself nearly 1 year later
    If you think your installation is better than ours, thats cool. You have your opinion and I have mine.

    Stop trying to think we are trying to destroy you rep, if i was i would tell people to try and avoid you, and post on multiple forums.
    all i said is "thats a bad install"

    chill out stevey boy [​IMG]

    Ozybaby, I am chilled out. But be honest, you, or whoever you got to post your "thats a bad install" does not know what they are talking about. Yes the good guys at Google alerted me to your post.

    You seem to have skipped the Periodic table of elements arguement for one one of " if i was i would tell people to try and avoid you, and post on multiple forums."

    Ozmodchips exactly what kind of operation are you running there? Is it a grudge left over from when we deported all you villians?

    Only joking Ozbaby, I am sure you are the guy to take your console to in Australia. But it would sure help if you wrote nice posts about other mod guys. There are not that many good ones around.

    Why don't you just softmod it?

    No matter what, it'll end up being the less expensive option.
