    Ok I have :

    Wiikey
    15 watt solder ironer
    Wires that came with the chip when I bought it from modchipstore.com

    Is that all the things I need?

    Is the solder flux another tool I need to solder the thing on to or is it usng the 15watt solder ironer and the soldering flux wire and putting it in?

    Well I used the soldering flux on mine. It supposedly makes the job cleaner.

    Here's a list of what you need-
    Wiikey
    15w soldering iron
    Solder (.032 dia.)
    Soldering flux
    Wires
    Sponge

    Thanks, so I can start soldering already with the materials I got now?

    Can you list what each tool is used for? It would help me alot.

    Wiikey- to play backups and imports
    15w soldering iron- to solder in the Wiikey
    Solder- Melt this into the points to connect the wires into the Wiikey
    Soldering flux- makes the job easier, just spread a little on each point and use soldering iron to melt it.
    Wires- to make a connection with the board and the Wiikey
    Sponge- Dampen this with water so that you can clean off your soldering iron.

    Oh and a nice tip that I have is to have a nail filer to sharpen the tip of the soldering iron. It'll make it nice and shiny :).

    Here are pics of my install-

    Wet sponge is a great idea. Beats the "piece of paper" I used to wipe the tip. :) Take your time, and everything will work out great!
