    Arrow please help a novice/rookie

    thinking about using the wii as my first console i do a hardware mod on

    looking at several options, but generally i am uncertain as for what product to get [wiikey/wiinja/ect]

    essentially i want the easiest one to install that allows back ups and homebrews, i was under the impression that the wiikey wrequired no wires and just needed a few solder points but i saw a instruction sheet today that had multiple wires along with the solder points.

    not really set on any device so any help here is appreciated

    also what concerns should i have long term about this, such as games/updates detecting and locking the system?

    note:i use my 360 and ps3 for online play and find the Wii's online plan lacking at best so i have no issues never connected to the internet with the wii.

    as far as playing backups, im assuming that any dvd-rw drive will work, but whats the recommended speed and brand of blank disk?


    as far as uses, here is what i would like to do:
    -play backups, preferably all regions but specifically NTSC
    -play various roms [not sure what emulators are even available]

    any other help anyone can pass along in regards to anything here is appreciated

    Thanks for your time

    I suggest a wiikey, First time soldering and I did just fine, plus it is upgradable with firmware, and all games will boot from your region, and a great number out of your region too.
    I don't have torrent site invites...

    My wiikey didn't come with wires. but I got a couple feet of kynar wire from ebay (but only need several inches for the install). Good luck.

    The Wiikey did very good for me. I installed it with wires from an IDE harddisk cable.
