I want to trim a Wii motherboard but the trimming guide does not explain(in my understanding) how to relocate the Bluetooth module. can I have a video on how to do it or at least some pictures?

The 3 specified 3.3v pads, the two data lines, and at least one solid ground wire.

what is the solid ground wire?
He is saying you need to a have a wire connecting ground on the Bluetooth module to ground on the Wii (solid meaning a good connection). The guide is extremely clear about what you need to connect. As mentioned above, the necessary 3.3v connections, ground, and the 2 data lines that must be soldered to the traces on the Wii. A push button between 3.3v and pin 12 can be used for the sync function.

Un cable a tierra que sea seguro y lo suficientemente grueso. ¿Estás seguro de que este tipo de proyecto es para ti?
When you started making laptops did you know everything? Someone asked you if this type of project is for you? Your question seems to me to be in bad taste, you shouldn't make fun of people who just started, they all don't know the same as you.

It does explain how to perform the BT relocation on the trim guide but if you'd like the see how somebody has performed it you can see in @Nold 's video:

Where in the video does he perform the Bluetooth relocation, because I watched the whole video and didn't see him do anything with the Bluetooth?

It's also worth noting that you don't need to relocate the BT module unless you specifically want to use Wiimotes with your portable. RVLoader can disable the need for a BT module to run Wii games, and can emulate a normal Wiimote (no Motion Plus yet) using Gamecube controls.

Damnnnnn I never saw that update I thought Bluetooth was mandatory for Wii games to run
