    WODE installation questions.

    I'm new, and I recently purchased a WODE, after softmodding began to get annoying. Being cautious, I know that a friend of mine wrecked a DS, by static electricity, so I want to make sure I don't shock and break anything. Also, for anyone with expierience, which parts must I be the most gentle with, and what times can I be a bit more forceful? I don't want to break anything. And finally, after installing it, what warnings can you give about bricking when playing certain games etc.
    Thanks!

    you should be gentle with all parts as they micro circuitry. as for anti static put your Wii on a rubber mat or something rubber to isolate it make sure you touch something not the Wii that is metal to discharge static if you are worried. basically any other appliance that has a three prong plug will do as it is grounded to the house.

    Why not just were an Antistatic strap? They are cheap and it's a lot easier than trying to work on something while holding on to a metal object?!?!?!



    Sorry for the ignorance because I have yet to install a WODE but isn't it just plugging in a few cables? No serious electronics work or soldering? And there is no such thing as certain games that will brick you so there is no advice to offer.

    you dont have to hang on to metal just touch it to ground yourself and discharge static. just dont drag your feet across the carpet and pick up a Wii or any electronics for that matter.

    Yes, I'm aware the WODE is easy to install, but having bricked things before vis static, I won't take a risk. I'm aware of antistatic wristbands, but I'm unaware how to use them. I don't get what it means to ground yourself. Thanks for the replies!
