    Are the points that you solder the wiikey to important for anything other then hacking the wii? I accidently ripped one of the leads off... but the wii still seems to work.

    You won't be getting another chip on those points...

    but as long as you didn't bridge anything, you should be fine...as long as you want the Wii to work...normally.

    The simplicity of modding the Wii has caused a slight problem in the modding community where too many people are doing it themselves (including myself).

    Yeah, my g/f decided to grab me when I was soldering and I ripped the pad right off. Nice eh?

    very easy, just see where the pad leads then solder there carefully to the ic leg. Tell the woman to go away when your doing you hacking.

    LOL My wife soldered mine for me. I don't know if that makes me any less of a man but I know for damn sure I would have cocked it up!
