    I'm sure it's repairable. Probably just a case of buying matching wire and soldering it in as a replacement for the damaged one.

    after reading up a bit i found out the wire might be for wi fi conection ,this was not the problem. first thing i was using my wiimote on his wii (not compatable) 2nd his wii is one with the legs cut off.my install was fine but the wiikey would not work anyway. now i have to get it solder to legs on the cb2 chip.what a noob i am burnt the pads bar 1 this aint going to be easy.

    I don't think you have the chipset # correct. I have never heard of a cb2 chipset. Should be D2B or D2C chipset.

    If it is a D2B chipset then all you need to do is solder onto the cut pins.

    If it is a D2C chipset the chipset is not compatible with a Modchip so nothing will work.

    You are also correct in that the wire you are talking about above is for the wi-fi.
