    Oh, and I had a question about a seller. The name is modchipcentral..but I don't know if I should trust them. What form of payment do they take? [please be paypal]

    And how come their prices are so much cheaper than anyone elses? They're selling Wiikey for $18, while modchipstore sells for like $40..and they're also selling CycloWiz V2 [supposedly] for like $35..while others sell them for like $45. What's up with that? Makes me a little weary. And also, when using the wire method...where do I get wires from/what kind do they have to be?

    And I also heard that if it's my first time soldering..I should use a 15W solder..just in case. Anything higher would kill the Wii, I think. That right? My dad has a 100W solder gun..but I don't think that would help [​IMG]

    Ohhh..and when you're you know, soldering the chip in..what order do you do it? Do you just connect the wire to the thing and then add flux, or do you do flux to wire..and then attach?

    I'm really confused. Never really thought about modding a Wii until recently. Just hope after I do it they don't start putting extra security on games..thus making it worthless >_>"
    Good thing I can turn the CycloWiz V2 off though when needed [​IMG]

    I ordered a Wiikey from them, and it arrived perfectly and on time.

    Unless you want to fry a fuse, play it safe and use a 15W soldering iron.

    I've ordered a Wiikey and two G6 DS Reals from them in 2007, and had no problems... however I have been hearing recently that people are having problems.

    All I can say is in 2007 my three orders were great. :/

    You must mean modchipstore.com recently they have be lacking in customer service. modchipcentral.com seems to be a safe bet.

    Haha, ok. Guess I'll just have to buy one. I also found out that I should use AWG 30 Wire, because thinner is better..

    Guess I'll also try and buy from modchipcentral. Any idea if they take Paypal, guys?

    I don't think modchipcentral.com uses paypal.
