    Desoldering chip....

    Hi guys.. I just bought Wiikey2 with clip presoldered....
    I bought this because my old chip cannot update things... so i can't play any new games...

    my question is that...

    Can I just cut off the wires attaching to the chip? and put the new wiikey2 chip?? would that work??
    or Do i have to completely somehow remove the solderings to make it look like new.. then put the new chip... T_T....

    you must desolder, or it wont work right, and you might damage it

    Just go to radio shack and ask for some desoldering braid. usually looks like a roll of copper braid wire.

    then check these tutorials out.
