Share your stories of success. Soldering experience: Almost none, except when I was 10 I'd solder ants in my backyard. But for the last two weeks I've been reading the guides linked here and practicing on an old sound card. The hardest part: Plugging the dvd cables back in, that took forever. Tips nobody told you: Be careful with the flat DVD cable! None of the tutorials mentioned this, but you have to unclip that dark brown thing by flipping it upwards. Also, practice soldering on the tiniest points you can find, the Wii's points will probably be smaller AND closer together. Did you break or forget anything? I ended up with about 5 extra screws and I have no idea where they go.
