    They didn't listen to the guy who said install priiloader, make a nand backup, leave themes alone, don't downgrade system menu versions, or uninstall ios's without instruction either. Some folks don't listen, they never have and never will, but alot of folks do listen and benefit from your advice.

    You have a good point, 90% of the people ended up here because they didn't listen. Never thought about it like that.

    But, on the plus side I'm far from serious its more of an in joke from sbhacker, as much the same happens there... I give the solution or ask a question and it gets ignored/missed.

    Guys, take a look at the Infectus installation picture: http://www.infectus.biz/diagrams/Nand_Flash_Wii.jpg If you look at the right side, all the solder points have visible traces and easy to solder to points on the board. I'll wager that the points on the left go underneath the chip and can be found on the board with a continuity tester.

    If someone would send me a known bad board I can figure out which points to solder to on the board. Soldering to IC legs is maddening If you ship me an Infectus chip I'd learn how to do it and do anyone from this board for no cost, shipping only. I'm in California.

    I'm going to get myself setup to where I can start doing flashing NANDs myself. I have a good hand at soldering and I think I would be up to the task.

    points are already known, the vias are already mapped.

    removing the chip is far easier and faster.

    Can you point to a tutorial showing how to remove a chip like this easily? How could it be easier than soldering a few wires? It would take less than 5 min to solder the wires direct to the board, would it take less time to de-solder and re-solder the chip?

    You cant just solder to a PCB... you need to expose the traces etc. if you go to the vias, its a pain to even get them in as the wire needs to be so thin that it bends easily and some vias have too much pcb lacquer over them etc.

    I can lift a tsop48 package chip in about 20 seconds and replace it in even less...

    Id recommend giving it ago before you consider it so easy as "soldering some wires".

    First of all... You not being able to run games had nothing to do with your system menu version so I don't know where you got that idea. Second... Did you install bootmii? If so Boot2 or IOS? You might be able to autoboot a recovery disk with a modchip like drivekey. Worst case you should be able to autoboot a legit copy of Lego Indiana to restore.

    P.S. You bricked because you installed to a stub IOS60. Which is your system menu IOS for 4.1.

    Got a tutorial? I can get the chip off, but getting it back on is the hard part for me. What hardware are you using to put the chip back? Anyway, I've always had luck soldering to vias, an excess of lacquer is removed with an exacto knife and a light touch. For all my PCB hacks I use thin strands from HDMI cables 28 or 30 gauge. I primarily hack ps3 and 360 pads to joysticks, but this doesn't look much more difficult. I usually just do a surface mount solder to the via and apply hot glue to fix in place, I never have any issues with any of my custom hacked joysticks.

    Anyway, if you went so far as to remove the NAND, couldn't you replace a new secure boot2 NAND with one with the exploit still available and then reprogram that one with the Infectus chip?
