Don't be tempted to attack the D2B Ic on the older Wii's, we can attach directly to the legs that have been cut. To the left is an image of the completed install. Just below the finger you can see the wires attached to the three cut legs.

Shame on chip manufacturers that are instructing their customers that their chips can easily be installed on the Three Legs Cut (TLC) version of Wii. It is absolutely irresponsible to suggest that this modification can be done by novices. Wiikey and any other chip producers should think less about their profit and more about their customers who are damaging the Wii's in droves.

We can repair these units, but stop with the dremel, before you go too far!

An Integrated Circuit can be written off with these heavy handed methods of soldering.

We never damage a unit to modify it! It is just isn't necessary!


New for December 2008 - New D2E chipset consoles with Epoxy resin surrounding drive chips are appearing in stores for Christmas. We can remove the epoxy resin and modify these consoles while you wait. The epoxy resin can be removed without the need to use a 'heat gun'. Heat gun removal is not recommended due to the fact that components can be heated and damaged by the 'heat gun method'.

Which chip for you?

If you have a serial number LEH135 or above, your unit is a D2C chipset. This requires a more complex modification. The best chip currently for theD2C is the Wiikey2. We have been installing this chip since 2008 and it has proved itself reliable and without problems. Newer chips coming on the market with less wires have encountered a series of problems.

This is a delicate install. The image to the left shows the connections taken through a microsope of some of the connections required.

This installation takes about 30 mins, so you can have the modchip installed while you wait..


We now have stock of the Wiikey2. The current price for this modification is £60.

Newer Wii consoles LEH200 to LEH249are D2E chipset. The best chip for these new consoles is the Wiikey2. The current price for this modification is £60.

For older versions of the Nintendo Wii (LEH 134 or lower) - the supply and fitting the latest Yaosm 12f629 modchip is £45 - Compatible with Mario Kart copy protection.


Wii Softmod - Do not install softmods on your Nintendo Wii. there are many problems relating to updating the console. Delete all hombrew and softmod files before updating your console.


We can supply and fit other chips such as the Wiikey and Cyclowiz but do not recommend these as they can easily be wiped by the new Nintendo in game flashing routines. Yaosm utilizes static encoding and cannot be erased in this way.

If you have ordered a Wiikey, Cyclowiz, Wiinja chip etc. and found out that it doesn't work after you installed it, we can install it for you and repair any damage to the board that you might have done. The Nintendo Wii is very well made and there is not much we cant fix on the board. We advise strongly against any grinding down of the Integrated Circuits in an attempt to attach wires to the cut legs. This can be accomplished with simple good soldering techniques.
