on earlier wiis nintendo cut some legs off the chips to stop people soldering modchips in but thats not a issue with yours
yes you need a soldering iron and NOT one of those with a flame, these are not the easiest of things to solder in and if your not experienced don't even attempt it m8 you could end up having to buy a new drive and then having to pay to have one fitted
Ye i know, but im gonna try to find some old pc mobo or even an old xbox (1) and try to solder some wires on a chip of the same size, then check of it works first.
The problem is.. when i buy a chip its around 30-35 euro, when i let it install its 130 euro.. i think its way too much.
