    the same thing happened to me i fried the points where i was suppose to soder the wiikey. then i found someguy in canada & he told me that it might still be fixable. all he did was soder the chip to the alternative soder point. i cant find the web page, but google it you'll find it

    yeah I just seen some pictures here http://teammodders.com/forum/alternate-points-for-wii-modchips-t4638.html

    but I wish I could find a digital camera around here somewhere because I messed my wii up bad and I guess tommorrow I will try and use the soldering braid to unsolder everythig. How good does that work anyway? but anyways back to the subject I messed up so bad that all my points were touching each other and I didnt know what wires to use for the wire method so I tried to do the quick solder and i know it is messed up it will be a miracle if it is fixable

    Your best bet for this would be a RadioShack. I picked up this wire at my local store to practice some soldering.

    I'm fairly certain this is the right wire, it's Kynar coated and 30 awg. if someone else could verify it's the right wire for the job.
