    Wiikit Install Guide & chip info

    [​IMG]


    Hi first id like to start by explaining what a wiikit is & how it is different to a wiikey

    Wiikit is a newer version of modchip for the nintendo wii, as the wiikey program was also once a starting project so is wiikit

    basicly it is a newer version on wiikey & no its not any type clone or even close

    the wiikit has the basic functions of a wiikey & not made like a clone it is 100% manufactured the same,

    wiikit is made with 01b resistor same as a official wiikey

    it included in latest production also gold pads like a wiikey, the chip set on top i confirm it the exact 100% same chi usedfrom team xeno

    the wiikit in many ways is new model in its own & to top it every chip includes a wired connection point for a more simple install process compared to any other wii modchip on the market

    this wired connector is what sets the wiikit apart & above the rest for the home modder it is the perfect chip

    Supports DVD-R / true DVD+R and +RW support (no bitsetting required!)
    Improved readsettings for recordable media
    Built-in audio fix
    Supports fullsize 4GB discs for gamecube homebrew
    Stealth mode
    512 byte EEPROM to store configuration
    Quicksolder interface - no wires required
    Unique disc backup application via sdcard
    Compact design, best quality components, rock solid high speed controller
    Professional ESD packing
    Recovery mode - Can recover from a bad flash



    Install process

    Install Process is 100% same as wiikey but with option to use a wired connector provided with every chip instead of direct wired method to make removing or updating a chip in future much much easy, also it doesnt make it a lot easyer not to go wrong in the install process compare to direct method is a once off thing if goes wrong things might look bad but with wired method it is a lot more simple & less risk in missing up the mod you also will be able correct any misteaks more easy

    We have placed a sample install Quide Below on how to position & Install Chip Via Direct or Wired

    Direct Install Method

    [​IMG]

    Connect all 6 points as shown above & use your chooce of soldering

    Wired Install Method


    [​IMG]

    Use direct install picture above to match each coloured wire to the corecct solder point on your wii system

    [​IMG]

    Connect your 6 wire's to each point on your wii,Attach wiikit chip 3 - 5 cm away from the solder points.

    [​IMG]

    Connect your chip to the wiikit wired connection point & your done, Software use is suggested to use Wiikey Universal V1.2 (PAL/USA/JAP)

    wired method is the 100% same install process just instead of direct solder you will connect your chip via wired connector provided with your chip, This makes it a more simple install & also chip can be removed at any time at no risk unlike other chips on the market which only provide a direct install method

    it's a wiikey rip off, just has the fancy cables on the side.

    So in a nutshell, it uses the wiikey config disk, i dunno if this qualifies it as a clone, a high end clone?
    It looks like a deformed wiikey. the extra wires are usless as you can solder those wires onto the quick solder pads.. and the wires are too big, bulky. I wouldn't get it as you can use the wiikey and have the same effect.

    aw....too bad, pretty good idea

    would be nice if wiikey, or any other official mod chip supplier picks up this idea

    I saw the thread creator accidently posted in a different topic -

    I have a question on this as I haven't looked at the wii scene in a while, but it looks like whether or not you have a wii with chipped legs this mod doesnt matter. What I mean by that is, that it'd be easy to install on any wii model. Also I would like to know if the Hajime no Ippo game is currently running on the wii using this sort of mod chip (a NTSC-U wii)

    I believe that you meant "clipped" legs. and you'll still need to either re-build the legs or dremel the chip for the install.

    I just received a [bad install] system with this wiikit chip installed and I've got to agree with helba, the 18awg crappy, stranded wire on that plug-in connector is extremely difficult to work with (which explains why I'm fixing the system in my possession right now). use it and more than likely, you'll end up lifting a pad or two.

    if you're going to purchase this chip, my suggestion is to throw away the connector and use the regular points on the chip.

    thanks, the 30 AWG is used for a reason.

    If they could come up with a way to use some form of adhesive that was conductive, so a solderless approach could be made onto the clipped legs, that'd sell like hotcakes.

    For instance, an idea I had would be to have the 3 wires in a cast that's hard and combined such that you mount it on top of the d2b chip, and it clamps on somehow, and applies pressure onto the 3 clipped legs such that connection is made. Hell, while you're at it with this, you might as well have it contact the other leg as well so the only two left to be wired would be vcc and vss.

    ziddery that is a good idea

    my opion on this is save up & do it you be a very very rich person if actualy make the design & finish project & Start selling a chip which yeah makes the legs reconnect in a more simple way then normal

    & for user above it no the wiikit will not at all make it more simple to install on the latest mother board version on wii with cut legs on the chip sets

    you still need to chip away at the chipset to expose those 3 points to be able solder them up

    but as user above this tread wrote there would be a way ,making a simple install chip which reconnects the legs when install chip but yeah the design would cost 1000's to deveolope so good luck with that

    also theres no point nintendo would just get back to the office & figure a new way to try stop all of us

    for example they cut the 3 legs off but yeah that hasnt stopped anyone from installing a chip only makes task more harder

    i can tell you now there in that office on the drawing boards trying to find a new way

    but sorry nintendo staff if reading this which you are lol

    but you will never sto the modders around the worldno matter what you do what you try will find a way thats just life so give it a rest nintendo just cause sony can do what they want doesnt mean you can

    hope this post gets throught to sum1 up high in nintendo company cause you really need think harder & in return so will we

    Modchips will never be stopped thats a fact of life & thats it end of story

    hope every one enjoyed reading my s#@t
