Modding Wii Using DriveKey
April 7, 2010
Coming up on today’s episode:
We going to take a look at modifying your Nintendo Wii, using the DriveKey. This modd works great for all regions! It enables you to play your backed up games in any region! Extremely nice and simple install.
Unlike soft molding or soldering a mod-chip, this type of chip is very easy to install. The Drivekey chip attaches to the dvd ribbon cable enabling your Wii to play game backups.
Now lets get started, first lets disassemble the Wii using the tri-wing and the philips head screw driver to expose the Dvd drive. Carefully flip it over and disconnect the Power and the Ribbon clip from the dvd drive.
Now we will take the drive key and will be switching the dip-switches according to your Wii’s Region
- Jap: on/onv
- USA: off/on
- EUR: on/off
- Kor: off/off
Lets connect the Drivekeys ribbon that came with the key, and connect it with the pins faced down onto the “DVD” side of the drivekey. Connect the lose end of the ribbon to the DVD drive where the other ribbon was connected.
OK so now that we have our Drive key connected to the Wiis dvd drive we will connect the motherboard ribbon we removed from the dvd drive and place it into the other hinge on the driveway.
Now everything should be set, now we will secure and insulate the chip to the board, but not agents the chassis, place a few strips of Electrical Tape or the Drivekey Sticker over the chip to make it secure.
Reassemble your Wii and you are ready to play your Wii Game Backups or Other Region games! Enjoy your newly modified Wii.
