    I saw someone post this idea on psx-scene. I was wondering if it's tangible:
    http://psx-scene.com/forums/wiikey/58479-n...done-cheap.html

    As pointed out on that forum, I'd think any pro would know he'd be installing a modchip. Still, it'd a cheap option and I don't need to go to a random stranger from the internet to get it done. What do you guys think?

    I'm planning on getting a Wiikey, since I don't plan on opening up the Wii again unless I need to remove the chip. However, is there anywhere you can get an Atmegal8 without ordering online, as well as everything needed to build a programmer?

    I thought it was a joke when I saw the thread but, hey you can try and you'll know you'll get the Wii back. Besides the only thing he can do is reject you and say no. He cant take the Modchip or the Wii because it's legally yours because you paid for it [​IMG]

    Well I can open up the Wii and take out the drive. The points are just too small for me to try to solder. I'd only give him the chip and the drive.

    If he knew it was a modchip, could he do anything besides reject me? lol, is there anyone to report it to? It sounds stupid, but in all seriousness could he call the police or anything? I mean it is illegal right?

    Also, are there any franchises of this kind of repair shop in the US? I don't know of any around here (south jersey) offhand.

    Good idea. Now I can cheaply have my Wii modchip installed if I buy it in the future.

    Id like to add this

    the world at this stage is getting bad really bad

    anyway yeah mate take it any where

    example a pc shop who does repairs as they all do

    even the tv repair shop in your local town

    take it anyway with the diagram of how to install like the diagram on where each solder point goes

    & trust me they will install it

    worlds that bad at moment no 1 cares bout anything except how much do i get for doing & when you going pay me

    also i would let them charge you the world other wise yeah get a professional installer in your local area to do the job

    if you as said take wii apart & get every thing ready which is basicly just open the case & remove the main drive part

    take it to any shop which does electronic repairs show them the diagram & ask nicely of course lol

    can you solder these 6 points up for me

    trust me they do it

    i say not charge more then 10 to 20 bucks cheaper then any other installer around
