    anyone know a step by step method in accomplishing this?

    I might get a wiikey clone to convert, just want to see how. I saw the picture made in paint, doesnt really describe much..

    Not necessary. Get a PIC12F683 free from Microchip.com, buy a programmer from Ebay, and flash it with YAOSM 3.0 final.

    Not neccessary. By an ATMEGA8L and flash it with OpenWii 2.4

    Exactly.

    However, I do recommend OpenWii on an Atmega8l, just as the chip is more powerful/flexible than the PIC. The functionality is the same.

    I'm pretty new to this so I don't know what the diagram is showing in all honesty :\

    Then you shouldn't build your own chip.

    What's your level of experience with electronics? Have you soldered small items before?

    I believe that diagram shows a serial port programmer. You'd need some software to use it though.

    no soldering expirience

    im not that good with electronics in that sense, more of a software guy than hardware...

    And everyone in my area wants $50+ to solder a wiikey and wont accept any other modchips so I'm pretty much SOL unless I do it myself.

    I think I may just get the YAOSM

    anyone have a good tut for soldering it and anything else useful so I don't screw up?

    okay, I took apart my wii, put it back together... never do that when your exhausted, I kept screwing up, putting screws in wrong places, got it all sorted...

    Anyway,s my D2B has cut legs, so I would need to sand down the chip? Is the chip just plastic or does it contain anything within it?

    I would consider waiting and seeing how the wasabi chip pans out if you have a d2b with cut legs: sorting such a thing is not easy for those who have played with soldering irons for years.

    The only reason I don't really wanna try out the wasabi is becuase I don't want support to stop ;x

    well, I got my microcontroller today to use on a YAOSM, but then I needa buy a programmer

    is it worth it, or just get a wiikey cause it seems they still update it
