If so how long do you think it will take before we see this on the market?
a follow up question, what does it mean by a non-solder solution. I'm quite confused.
what's the point of this prediction?
no one can say for sure nothing!!
He probably means a software-solution, like flashing the wii's software to allow unsigned discs etc
I think, looking at the past consoles, that one will come. I don't know how it would work on the drive because those points are very small and there's not much to screw to. Maybe once people begin to make chips that overwrite the Wii's firmware those chips will come along. Anyone's guess really.
Thanks for the info.
I see one coming before X-mas 07
You didn't know what it was, but you can predict when it will come.
As far as a no-solder solution, it's just a matter of someone designing a modchip that can make contact with points (via screws, clip-ons, etc.) without having to solder anything. As far as a soft-mod goes (modding the console without the use of a modchip) depends on if someone can find an exploit that'll allow you to run unsigned code. Since there are already modchips out, it's very possible for a no-solder solution to appear (probably won't be too soon since the current chips are already "quick-solder" and it always costs more to manufacturer a no-solder) and since nothing is perfect (as we've seen with every console before this) it'll only be a matter of time until an exploit is found.
I'll take either solution as long as I can't mess up my Wii with my non-existant soldering skills
Could be a long wait.. I would just have someone install it for you.
Solderless eh? You could always use twist ties.
I feel more comfortable soldering a chip ... as opposed to flashing Wii's firmware.
