    WiiKey2 - Pin G - Needed on Wii Motherboard?

    While installing a WiiKey2 on Pin G, the glob of solder on top of the Wii motherboard came off with the surface circle etching.

    Does this pin come out of the D2E chip and stop or does it transfer to the other side of the motherboard? After reading dozens of posts, some say it may be the clock (CLK) pulse. If so, is it used as an output from the D2E to something else or is it possibly an input to the D2E?

    I am installing the modchip (yellow sticker ver) on the unit and it is not booting past the language selection screen. This is the only problem I can see with my install. I was able to attach directly to the chip pin but I am afraid I killed something else on the opposite side.

    When the system is powered on, the WiiKey2 chip lights red for a second, then quickly flashes to blue, red, blue then off. The system then spins up the drive, asks for a keypress on the remote and hangs on the Language selection screen. What does this light flash mean?

    i am assuming you mean the trace lifted? the gold pad for "g". It looks like that trace goes to the second leg on that chip in the wiikey2 install guide.

    You may want to unistall your chip and make sure the drive works fine. Then try to install it again.

    If it doesnt work on the second install then upload some pics.

    OK, so you didn't install the wire for point G when the pad came off?

    If you solder G to the drive chip, should be second pin in from right, look at install diag for picture, you should be fine.

    I did go ahead and solder straight to the chip and it worked fine. I just wanted to be sure that was not a needed input or output for something else in the system since I killed the etching.

    Thanks for the help!
