    Well it says:
    * Support of PAL backups/original on the NTSC WII (some with swaps)
    * Support of NTSC backups/original on the PAL WII (some with swaps)

    Even with swaps, that seems quite interesting...

    Is this a real question or a joke? It means no soldering required. You don't have to melt the points to the chip so this can easily be removed.

    Sorry, it was a real question. I was just making sure, cause I thought that it was necessary to solder every chip for it to work. How do you install it, if you don't have to solder it?

    Well - You only have to connect the soldering points of your chip with the corresponding wii soldering points. If you can manage to get a direct connection by 'plugging' them on each other - that's it.

    The question is: how good the quality of such a solution will be... screwing might be a solution - I would suggest to add some conducting paste.

    This can't be solderless. I think they mean quicksolder. There are holes where the points are. Plus there are no extra holes for screws or anything else. I'd say this is definitely not solderless.
