First off since this is my first post, I will use it to say what's up, and thanks a lot to the members here for the info I have read and used from this site. My two questions I can't find a whole lot of info on are... 1. Do you have to turn off Wiiconnect24 before attempting the install? I have seen this about 50% of the time and have decided to be safe and turn it off. 2. What is the deal with the internal battery. Does it need to be taken out, or is it taken out in the process. Again I have seen this in about 50% of the tutorials (In writing) but have yet to see a picture. Forgive me if this is covered in one of the many Wii case disassembly tutorials, as I was planning on looking at those as I am ready to pull it apart. Appreciate any advice.
