    Wasabi v3 for unknow drive

    I recently buy a new wii from London. Its a PAL system obviously. But the serial number starts with LEH218xxx .

    I also have Wasabi v3 solderless clip. I will try to assemble it soon.

    My question is as i don't know the drive model, should i need to wire anything like F thing?
    also what about jumpers, i don't understand the DMS PAL etc... jumpers. should i solder jumpers or what shall i do with the jumper things.

    thanks a lot

    Thanks, so for D2E drive i don't need to cut anything. Should i need solder the F line or do i need any soldering?

    I also didn't understand the Jumpers in the wasabi installation guide. DMS, PAL KOR D2C etc.. what shall i do there?

    what versio is the clip? if its v5b then u can just solder F to Q point as per pic below..otherwise you will need to solder F to F point on the dvd drive board...since you have a D2E u can ignore the jumpers....u just need to bridge jumper 2 since you have a PAL unit

    np..since ur wii is 3.3 make sure ur games are not scrubbed otherwise u will get a black and white error message screen and will have to install gekco os on the hombrew channel in order to get the games going
