dude, i live in SoCal. I don't know of a good installer here. I researched this forum and found this guy http://www.wiihacks.com/buy-sell/378...-fl-pikts.html . he's in Florida but after reading and seeing pictures of his work, i'm convinced he's the right guy for this job. the day he received my Wii, he modded it, and that same night he shipped it out.. that was actually just last night. He also emailed me a bunch of pictures of my Wii opened with the chip installed. I'll have more/better feedback once i get it sometime this week. All the info written in the link above about him and his work is true. He communicated to me before, while modding, and after shipping back with a confirmation tracking number. i know someone who had his Wii modded locally here in the valley but he's not able to play dual-layer games like ssbb. Mine, according to spiktsu, tested and worked fine with ssbb.
