    Going to see what happens with the GC controller trick first (else I'll be waiting on an Infectus chip - I'm not that patient)...
    If it is the Dop-IOS bug you won't get anywhere with savemiifii because you won't be able to autoboot discs.

    NAND flashing and simple don't belong in the same sentence but good luck and keep us posted.

    Yes, I agree. My first attempt went bad. The second went much better but took me hours but I did get the Wii to boot. By the third attempt i had it down. (of course I am removing the NAND and then refitting)

    We probably have very different definitions of 'having it down'

    I can remove a tsop in a few seconds and replace it in under a minute using a soldering iron.

    But it's one of those things you can't really teach, it's just practice practice practice... And I've had far more than my fair share of that lol

    I can believe that.

    I too can remove the tsop in a matter of seconds but it takes me about 15 minutes to refit using my method. That time will get shorter and shorter the more i do and the more I adjust my method. I have no problem offering my services though as I feel very comfortable in what I am doing. I have been doing hardware fabrications for years and have done my fair share of soldering. But if something does go wrong, I the means of making it right for my customers.

    That's the major thing when you offer these services - that you can and will make it right.

    If in the weird instance that I broke a board, I have around 10 around at all times to replace it. My major gripe is the 'modders' that can barely use a soldering iron that are more than happy to take peoples money when they have a very good chance of screwing it up.

    Hell, I had a nice one I was posting pics of in irc a week or so ago, someone had installed a modchip for this guy (modchip-fitters or something) and had burned the ribbon connector (and therefore glued the ribbon cable in) and lifted 3 pads.

    The guy who had it done was none the wiser that it was pretty botched and paid them, it was only when the wii was bricked and I had to remove the drive this was all found. Of course I was left to pick up the pieces and had to replace the connector (free of charge I might add)

    Anyway, little off topic with my ranting lol.

    Wow... That is almost the same method I use except for the tip. maybe that is why it takes me so long. I will have to pickup one of those tips and give it a try.

    Here is my method and directed by yours truly.

    Tips/Advice:

    • You DEFINITELY have the wrong tip.
    • Apply some solder to the existing solder, you will have much easier time removing it with the wick (especially if you add leaded solder which is what you should be using anyway)
    • You do not need to glue the chip down, once its aligned, just push down with 1 finger then put abit of solder on your iron (wont work on your conical tip) and just tack the corners of 1 side (1 and 24), as once you soldered 25-48 that will hold it down while you do the other side.
    • Use leaded solder (if you arent already)


    But you definitely have the theory down, its just a case of learning the "tricks of the trade" to make your life easier.

    Thanks for the tips. I am creating a guide for this. If you don't mind, I will include your tips. I will get a different tip and give it a try. If I can make it work better then I will record it again.

    oh and FLUX

    seriously, you have no idea how much easier some no clean liquid flux will make it. Dont just apply it before you put the chip on, you can throw some more down while you are doing the clean up (if needed).

    On the drag method, put down more flux if you have a bridge.
