    So, i thought i could mod my wii myself. It was all going good. I messed up like 4 times but desoldering braid is teh 1337zorz.
    Yeah, soldering those two huge power points are really hard... any tips? My luck is also i got grounded... (today i went to the doctors... i always get grounded after going) so if ppl can respond quick i'd appreciate it. I put a little solder onto it, but when i go to bridge the connection, the solder clings to the walls of the circles in the wiikey and then my iron wont melt the stuff at the bottom. [​IMG] If i melt the stuff on the bottom it rises to the top >:

    You might want to try the wire method (or short-wire) rather than soldering it right on the dvd drive if you are having problems.

    ..if you can get it off. Be prepared to use up your desoldering braid. [​IMG]

    Well, I finally found out what was wrong. Evidently i did not install my wiikey flat onto the drive's PCB. The last point i needed (power point furthest from the chip) was actually my problem. All i needed to do was bend the wiikey a little, apply heat, and the joint was made [​IMG] But i don't know if it was a cold joint or not, because now that i finally put it back together, my mom took it away :'( Guess I'll find out at the end of the month.
