    So I just finished removing a component from the board, took a while but I think I finally got it. Anything look wrong with it? I had to remove for the trim OMGWTF. I was pretty scared on trying to remove it, will it short circuit?

    L4 is useless, just a power component that's in an unfortunate place

    I'm afraid if I try to power it on it will short circuit or something, I really don't want to buy another Wii. But now I feel more comfortable removing some components thanks ShockSlayer, maybe I can start trimming today.

    The only way for the board to short out is if you don't properly sand the edges after trimming.

    Just make sure your voltage lines don't have contuinty with ground after you trim and sand before powering on. Removing components isn't going to short anything because you aren't bridging anything. If anything you're making less connections on the board.
