WiiKey Installation
Unlock your Nintendo Wii with the worlds first truly upgradeable Nintendo Wii Mod Chip.  That's the manufacturer "hype" for the Wiikey.  And it's all true.  Thankfully in the case of this Nintendo Wii Mod chip, it's not just all hype and senseless features, but a robust, good chip that just works.  Installing the WiiKey is as easy as can be.  Even if you're just a novice when it comes to soldering, you should have no problem with installing the WiiKey in your Nintendo Wii console.

The really good thing, as far is goes with the WiiKey Installation is that you're only required to work with just one section of the Nintendo Wii mother board.  And what's even better is the fact that you don't need any wires for the WiiKey Install at all.  The WiiKey instructions do not show any required wires, nor do you have to install any wires.  The Wiikey is installed by way of quick solder pads, much like the DuoX 3 Xbox Mod Chip was installed, simply by placing the chip over the correct points, and putting solder on the quick solder pads which then connected the chip to the motherboard of the console.  The WiiKey install is exactly the same.  Instead of having to wire up your mod chip and put wires inside your Nintendo Wii system, the WiiKey also uses the quick solder pad method.

As mentioned earlier, the ease of installation of the WiiKey chip is that you don't need wires, and that you're only working with one part of the Nintendo Wii Motherboard.  The image below shows the area on the Nintendo Wii Motherboard that you'll be working with.

WiiKey Installation into Nintendo Wii Motherboard For All Wii Models World Wide

WiiKey Instructions - What do you need?
  • You'll need a soldering iron.  15W max will do just fine.  These can be found in most major electronics retailer shelves, like Radio Shack, The Source, Circuit City, etc..
  • The installation diagrams (found below under the download link)
  • A Tri-Wing Screw Driver, though you can use a regular STAR / Phillips Screw Driver as well, these tend to fit, and you can open you Nintendo Wii quite easily.
  • Solder with Flux.  Again, RadioShack in the US / Canada and many Electronics retailers world wide carry solder.

Now that you have everything you'll need to open your Nintendo Wii system, and install the WiiKey mod chip, you just have to place the WiiKey on the correct spot on the Wii motherboard.  This is quite easy and painless.  You can hold it in place, firmly, with one hand while putting the soldering iron over the quick solder pads, and melting the solder until the WiiKey stays in it's place.  Once you've soldered it with just one of the quick solder pads, you can stop holding it, as the solder will hold it in place for you.

Look at the image below closely, to determine where you MUST place the WiiKey mod chip.  It's vital that you install the WiiKey and solder the quick solder pads to the correct place on the Wii Motherboard.  Soldering them anywhere else could entirely ruin your Wii system.  With the clear and detailed installation diagram, you'll be able to place the WiiKey on the exact spot on the main board of your Wii.

WiiKey Install Close Up of Wii Main Board

The WiiKey has either circular or small square quick solder pads.  We recommend that you first take your solder and soldering iron, and apply some solder to each of the pads.  This will make it much easier when you're actually installation the WiiKey.  Because you'll have pre-soldered the quick solder pads, when you again place your soldering iron on the pads when installing the modchip, it will quickly melt the solder and connect it with the corresponding points on the Wii motherboard.

That's it, you're done.  Taking apart your Nintendo Wii is probably the hardest / most challenging part of the WiiKey install.  The modchip install so easily that even a novice can complete the installation in 15 minutes or less.
