Hey all, need some advice on a "situation" I'm having, here is the scoop. Have a first gen Wii bought a WiiKey for it and somehow took all the solder off point #5 on the mobo (I swear modding the xbox was a lot easier...). Wii still played originals, so I thought screw it and went to an installer, about a 30 min drive and $80 out of my pocket for the install. The guy used a dremel on the drive chip, and did the second gen Wii mod install (wire method, where you solder 3 wires to the chip itself where the legs were cut) and the other 3 to the mobo solder points. We plugged it in, did't booted backups, he redid the solder job, it booted backups. I took it home, it stopped booting backups. I opened it, fiddled with some wires, it booted backups. Opened it again to use electric tape on the wires to fix them in place just in case....it stopped booting backups. At this point I can't get it to work, and it looks like the solder job is okay, although the 3 wires in the chip might be bridged...too damn small to tell. I need some advice. The installer's work is guaranteed, so I can drive down there and he can fix it. I asked if I could bring another Wii to solder the chip to, he said he'd do that for free as well. He says he should be able to fix the problem now, he would just try taking the two wires that don't need to be put on the chip legs and put them on the mobo solder points, only leaving the one wire on the chip leg who's mobo solder point I ruined. I've heard stories about people "bumping" their Wii and the mod chip stopped working. I don't want this to happen to me and want a good soldering job (which may not be possible now...I don't know much about this stuff). Should I have him fix the Wii I have now? Should I get another one and just take the WiiKey off the old one, put it on the new one with a nice solder job and sell my old Wii (he can do first and second gen)? What do you guys think? Anything I said above that you want to comment on?
