I have my GC+ 2.0 wired up, but when the Wii is on, I have no input from the controller whatsoever. I've tested everything the best I can with a multimeter. I have continuity on everything, and testing when the Wii is on showed everything receiving the right voltage, so I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here. If it helps, I'm currently running portablizeMii (that's just how long this project has gone on), and the Wii boots slowly (the intro videos play slower than they did pre-trim), so I don't know if that could be tied to the issue. Any ideas on what's going wrong?

The via soldering here looks very poor. First try to redo the soldering of the GC data via. If same result try the u10 next.

This might be a symptom of bad u10 wiring. Hard to say sometimes. Hit it with some flux and reflow and move the wire away from adjacent vias. Check to measure 3.3v on output of U10. Another check could be to remove the u10 wire and see if the symptom is the same.
