    Wasabi Fat Clip

    I had the chip solid green, properly isolated, the Wii green, the drive connected, secured evenly (the trick is to keep tightening screws a little at a time until its even, and not too tight that it'll pop the clip off), case closed evenly, and the drive still wont start with that piece of shit fake Wiiclip. Once the Wasabi(shit)clip is removed everything is fine. Except the fact that the whole ordeal renders my Nintendo News Channel useless, and in need of Wii system format to start working again. What the fuck is going on with Wasabi, I heard they were the shit, what happened?

    Wasabi Zero installed, seemed to work. But the chip / clip is too big. If I try to screw the drive back in it must move the clip and and my drive goes lame. It wont accept or eject discs.

    I am very VERY disappointed!

    Let me know via post ot PM if Modchipscentral does anything about it. I got mine from Canadamods.
    Did the drive take discs before you closed it? Because mine would not. I closed it up just to see if that might help (wishful thinking).

    Yeah, it did.
    I even got a game to work.
    But nothing works now. Clip is f-ed up after having to reseed it twice.
    I have read people said soldering is the best option... i believe it now!

    I got mine working. Once I got it to the point where the clip is really stuck on there, the Wasabi worked fine. Got a solid green light.

    Make sure you're not using too much tape and that the drive cables are placed correctly back in their place, or that could make it hard to close the drive.

    Make sure the clip is seated correctly and make sure the electrical tape you used on the bottom of the chip isn't touching the top of the chip or else you'll get a red light.

    The tape the solderless install diagram says to use to prevent shorts.

    Yeah you can, but compatibility isn't 100%. That's why many people use homebrew (GeckoOS) to boost compatibility.
