    Man I remember this modchip. I was contemplating getting one of these right before the wiikey2 came out. I'm glad I waited cause this 20+ wire job would've been hell for me to do, much like the ps2 modchip days.

    Look what I've found :

    D2CPRO GW 601 - Clone D2CKey but included neat fetures like Modchip Disarm Mode - 30 Wire Installation.


    Theres something called modchip disable mode. Is this the cause of the problem mentioned on the other thread ?

    Oh shit

    Could be a burnt pin. Reball, flux use, and solder skills are recommended before these type of projects. Hopefully you resolve this bug without it being a hardware issue.

    I would go for that disable mode and failing that simply remove the chip

    Simply cutting all the wires could suffice.
    Next try with removing the SMD's from the daugtherboards.
    (only if they actually are on them, on a second look it seem more like they are on the wii itself)
    Last resort unsoldering the boards.

    But only try it if you think you can handle step 3.

    can someone explain me what does this guy do in the video ?


    Sorry, I can't unnsolder that thing.

    I REALLY want to know how to disable it.

    Can those little "boards" be "unattached" from that black blocky thing ?

    What do I use to load backups without modchip ?

    The read speeds are kinda slower than before, why ?
    It looks like there's something loosy on my Wii when I shake it.

    This piece came off when I was dissasembling the Wii , and I don't know where it is from.

    A softmod
    best applied with modmii

    but put that piece wherever it belongs before powering it up again
    failing to do so will likely cause further damage

    That small plastic bit looks like a part of the disc locking mechanism. If thats what it is, it will probably cause damage to your discs and/or Wii if you dont have it.

    I don't have any idea of where it is from. I don't know where to put it.

    A question: Loding backups without a modchip is slow as hell, the game lags sometimes and some cutscenes are slow. Is this normal ?

    Yup backup games run at half their original speed without a modchip . That is one of the main reasons people switched to usb loading long time ago.

    Its quite hard to pinpoint it based on that picture, because it isnt very clear.
    Also Ive never completely disassembled my Wii, only the bigger parts to get a look at it. But I do recall seeing something that reminds of that thing on the DVD drive.
