New Wii Dvd Board Revision In North America
Posted 20 July 2007 - 10:19 PM
In addition to cut IC legs, these boards are also missing "pad 3" needed for installing the wiikey (same as some of the wiis that were showing up elsewhere in the world before the legs started getting cut); it's still a d2b chip though, so rebuilding to the ic leg works just fine.
Here is an initial pic of the board (I took a lot more, including final install pics, but I don't have access to them at the moment)
More pics to come.... if anyone is wondering where to rebuild to, it's the pin marked orange in this image:

my wii is an lu521.... Also, is NTSC the region? Or is it a further classification of US
if it's a North American Wii then it will be NTSC (other regions are SECAM, PAL, and NSTC-J)

I just got a new US NTSC Wii. The serial number starts with 'LU3162' so I'm sure it has the pins cut off (can't pop it open yet; waiting on the "special" screwdriver to be delivered).
Do the cut off pins simply mean that the wiikey chip won't work while others might? Or will NO chip work anymore? I was looking at the CycloWiz chip for example... it doesn't seem to need/use the pins that are missing so it should work even with new revision boards?
Is that correct or am I off here?
Any info would be greatly appreciated; I'm off to do more reading.
EDIT: Oops.. it looks like the CycloWiz needs those pins/connections un-cut for it to work. Ugh. Now to pray that I got lucky and my board doesn't have the pins cut. *cross fingers*

If you use flux, try to remove the excess when you are done. Also, plumbers flux is a really bad idea since its generally conductive.
