Hey there.

So... you use an ad blocker. That's cool. Sometimes we do too.


But without ad revenue, we wouldn't even be here. And we might not be here much longer.

    Video: More Nintendo Wii NAND Modding

    To quote from Bushing's page linked above: ChipD is a lean, mean, solderin' machine -- I have some of these TSOP sockets, and they are really really hard to solder down to a PCB that you actually care about. Also, they tend to melt if you breathe on them -- but maybe that's just me. I really like the way he made that slick cutout panel for the socket.

    Beyond soldering a socket in place of the NAND flash chip, he programmed two spare flash chips with dumps from a PAL Wii and an NTSC/J Wii. He converted those two dumps to run on his Wii using an early version of some of my UnbrickMii project code ("betwiin").

    No news yet on release plans; it still needs a lot of work, but it's interesting to note that there are absolutely no hardware differences between Wiis from different regions.
