I'd have thought of the consoles the wii is the easiest of the bunch, all you need to know is how to operate a screwdriver, no other flashing/hacking is needed as far as I know its virtually foolproof, only special tool needed is a triwing driver and im sure it doesnt even damage any warranty seals either!

I used to be a whizz at soldering when at college, even had a part time job assembling fire alarm panels which was mostly soldering, tried a simple solder join on a speaker cable and got more solder on the carpet and table than on the wire! Thought i'd cracked it then realised id not heated the joint enough and ended up with a dry joint so had to redo it! Im tempted to get some of those hobby kits from maplins just for practice as theres so many things on instructables I want toi try!

I understand desoldering braid is an excellent weapon in the novice solderers arsenal, probably pays to have a good soldering iron too, im tempted by the variable temp ones you can get, but dont know whether it will get used enough to warrant it!

I have been looking into this as my nephew is getting a Wii soon. In the text to in your link it says :

"For import support the end user needs to solder 4 easy wires, the wire is included."

I presume that this means that if you don't do the soldering then you can't play games from outside the region of your Wii?

Also - how do you update the Argon if required? Do you need another bit to it?

I am interested in this solution as I am buying brand new and I was hoping that the warranty would not be affected as I could remove the chip without trace (if I was careful). Is this likely to be able to be done (traceless removal)?

this guy is brilliant and he only uses to notch chips, I have watched him do a couple for me and friends and there are a lot more than 4 wires to solder, apparently there are a lot of cheaper chips that are easire to fit but are a lot less reliable. Why bother risking it?, he has done 4 so far for me and I have another that I am taking to him next week (away at the moment).

You can also post your console to him and he will chip and return by post.
