    guys, for a person who has no experience in soldering (like me), how hard is it to solder?

    What type of soldering tools and wires are required?

    I have heard about wiiclips. Question is, will this clip fall off easily, since the drive vibrates?

    Thanks!

    A properly attached Wii Clip won't fall off, just go with the clip option.

    if you get a preassembled one nope just clip and go, IMO its not as good as soldered in but it works and there really isnt enough clearance to fall off....

    the wiiclip is great for someone on a budget who has no soldering exp.

    It depends, where are you located?
    I order my stuff from modchipcentral, in Canada. I've also heard good things about ozmodchips, in Australia.

    Just order from a shop that's (relatively) close to you. Make sure that you can find some ratings on it first though, so you don't receive a fake chip or clip.

    NO! Foundmy is a horrible place. Go with modchipcentral.com

    Either Modchipcentral or Ozmodchips. Period.
