    I just tried opening the wii to install the cyclowiz, and when i get to the four screws on the left side, the two front black tri-wing screws would not turn, they seem to be sort of stripped now so i stopped. What size tri-wing screwdriver should i be using? my screwdriver says No.888 3.0 CRV on it, bought it off of ebay specifically designating it for the Wii. And if they're stripped, will i never be able to install this chip?

    Yes, it wasnt a cordless, it was a professional drill. The cordless drill i had didnt have enough power. Oddly enough everything went according to plan. Now i just have empty holes where the screws were.
    The holes dont look too great but i got it open.
