    So I've had my wiikey soldered before but apparently it wasn't soldered correctly so it's sitting in my wii no effect on it whatsoever (Backups don't work but normal games still run fine). Is it possible to remove it and re solder it back on? If so, what exactly do I need? I'm heading to wal-mart later tonight so if I can get anything while I'm there, that would be great! Thanks in advance.

    Edit: Just a note, my wiikey was quick soldered so I'm pretty sure it's going to be hard to remove. If anyone could tell me how to remove it or give me any advice, it would really be great!

    You need a soldering iron, solder, very thin wire (I recommend Kynar (a brand name) wire)

    You also need a triwing screwdriver and a phillips screwdriver (not sure what size)
    You'll need to buy the triwing online.

    I already have a triwing and a phillips screwdriver because I had to take my wii apart for case modding a while back. Are all the things other then those available at wal-mart?
