    Is it possible to take out a modchip from a modded Wii?

    I did after my modchip was not working
    Broken 2 Solder pins while taking out
    So it will be hard to install modchip now, now i really have to let somebody do it directly on the Chip but i don't know anybody doing it with Cyclowiz close to my location [​IMG]

    Yup - Desoldering.

    Use a Desolding pump or/and Desoldering Braid.

    And eh, any idea if I take out my chip and replace it with WiiKey, will the 001 error stay or is it permanent?

    Definately not permanent. What chip do you currently have?

    001 error is tied specifically with the modchip - the error is not tied to your Wii. So you can put in modchips and pull them out weekly if your so inclined.

    If you put in a Wiikey and upgrade to 1.9g you will not see the 001 error on SMG.

    edit: spelling
