I received my V2 wiinja two days ago and ripped into the wii right away (which is surprisingly easy to open and put back together). I had been practicing soldering on an old clock radio that I opened up earlier but the wii mod would be my first real world, $280 on the line soldering job. I used a 15w iron from radio shack, .032 solder (rosin core) btw. First thing to note is that the video’s and tuturials do not give a very good sense of how small the three contacts (contacts 5,6,7) really are – they are freakin’ tiny! The other two are a decent size and well spaced. Any way, I ended up lifting up contact 7 which was like a dagger to the heart. All that planning, preparation, practice and money spent down the frickin drain. As a last attempt I got out my magnifying lens and followed the path to the d2b chip and tried to solder to the leg (which are beyond tiny). Somehow, someway I got it exactly onto the correct leg. I finished it off by soldering to the wiinja, used some super glue and taped the hell out of it. Put it all back together,crossed my fingers and threw in my original madden 07 which booted up as usual. Nice, worst case scenario averted. I then tried my pre-burned backup (TDK dvd-r burned at 4x) and praise the lord it worked too! I checked the following backups and all worked flawlessly: rayman, super swing golf, madden 07, wii play, elebits, tony hawk, warioware, call of duty 3 In fact, I noticed that the loading times for games were actually faster for some reason although I can't confirm for sure. Anybody else notice this?? Now I want to start my own business doing this mod. What a rush! I went from depressed to down right giddy in a span of an hour. That’s my story I hope you all have the same luck (maybe a little skill) that I had. Cheers.
