Drive flatcable test point pinouts



As you all know Nintendo loves test points :)! Well seeing as they like test points so much and I hate flatcables I thought it would be a cool idea to check out if it would be possible to ditch the damn flatcable all together and simply use a different connector. Suffice to say it can be done. I've done it for at least one Wii now and working on my two other mainboards now to make a nice drive swap system. Regardless though do not try this unless you have experience or have a death wish for your Wii. Anyway here are the pinouts for those who wish to try this one out ;).
