    Probably, if and when a Wii freeloader has been made. The current working GC freeloaders should work with this too for GC games.

    That second video is not very good. The camera moves away after he picks up the disc. We never see him put it into the Wii. I'm not saying it's fake, but the video sucks as proof.

    correct, there are plenty of flash MCU's in DIP8 package available.

    This chip is most likely accessing some debug interface and those is able to 'poke' any code into the memorie(s) at any place. Strange it is only connected with 3 wires, the place where it goes does show 4 test pads close to each other, what could be normal JTAG interface. Sure if the chip only writes to JTAG it can leave the 4th pad disconnected (less soldering). If it is so, then it should take only a few minutes to clone this chip as it cant use any tricks to hide the jtag communication. Sure it may be some other type of debug interface too. Still cloning the clone is usually way simpler as doing the initial thing.

    well I'll wait for a review on gbatemp by someone reliable [​IMG]
    besides no need to get all crazy about it, not supporting other regions is pretty shitty... [​IMG]

    ...shitty? Is it done by PAL and NTSC?
    If so, I see nothing wrong with that...
    If worst comes to worst just buy another Wii from the JewSA (they're cheap enough...)

    So do we still have to adjust the laser like in the GameCube, or not?

    The picture of the Wiinja connections is upside-down, their pin 7 = pin 4 and pin 5 = pin 3.
    Pins 1 and 8 are GND and PWR.

    Ahhh...so the modchip reads unscrambled discs (only)? That question was on my mind.

    Wow. Good news, but too expensive.

    I will wait until someone rips the PIC and make one myself.

    So, I suppose my US Wii would not be able to run Japanese burned games with this?

    You are correct. It can only play Wii games for your region, i.e., US games on US Wii's, PAL games on PAL Wii's etc.

    For that price you could buy a PIC programmer and make one yourself.

    Are there any gamebits (screwdrivers) that work on Wii? I'm in the market for one.

    I think you only need the triwing screwdriver for the Wii and not the reverse torx looking "gamebit" driver.
    I have both and they are usually pretty easy to find on eBay.
