With the Wasabi Zero being the first, the Drivekey is now the second.
sourceDrivekey iis a plug-and-play solderless solution for ALL
current wii drives. It has region overrride features (USA/JAP/PAL/KOR),
works with both Wii and GC games, including titles like Super Mario
Galaxy and SSBB. It is currently in production and will start shipping
next week. Full features and specifications will be announced on the
website soon. I have attached a picture of a handsoldered prototype used
Here's the product:
As you can see, this one is unique. It does not mount on the drive chip controller, it intercepts the signal between the motherboard and laser unit.
It would require the removal of arrow'ed cable.
Not much else is known about its compatibility, but in theory, it could be a no-solder solution to the "D2Nothing" consoles. (systems with no drive controller)
Epoxy pains will be a thing of the past too.
