    I modded my wii approx 3 months ago and everything was smooth sailing. At that time I purchased 2 mod chips, one for me and one for my friend, we both got first shipments and I hadnt gotten around to modding his until today.

    The mod appears to be done correctly to my eye - same as last time except this time it doesnt turn on. When plugged in the wii shows its red light to show its powered but thats where the good times stop. When I press the power button the light changes to green momentarily and the dvd drives light shines as well .. but just for a second then both turn off, and the Wii doesn't even go back to red - it turns off.

    Is this a faulty wiring job? something to do with the wii firmware/updates? have I bricked my friends console =[ Any recommendations? I assume the wiikey chip works fine because they were ordered and received together and we have the same system, but his I believe has newer firmware installed at the time of the mod chip install.

    Thanks in advance anybody that can help.
