I got my Wii modded with a generic PIC chip and some open source software back before there were any softmods available. Newer games are giving me Error 001 with the latest Neogamma and CIOS installed, so it looks like the updated modchip is probably causing the problem. The chip was not soldered to the drive, but was instead attached with wires that were soldered. Can I simply cut the wire to safely disconnect the chip, or is there some other procedure that I must follow? I'm comfortable with opening and reassembling my Wii and I'm competent enough to tape the snipped wire to avoid shorts.
