    Why are people buying this chip with the intention of removing it?

    and not only that, quick solder is an option, it also has the option of using wires.
    The way I see it is that this chip is everything the Wiinja is, but more for the simple fact that it has an LED. I absolutely have to have an LED on everything I own.

    LED's FTW

    I guess its just a mental thing; knowing the led is there is just important.

    I don't know why people would waste money on this crap. Wait a few months for the big companies that know what they are doing to release theirs. It will be so much better and worth the wait.

    Well personally I don't know what those big companies can do different..

    I mean look at how diverse the modchip scene for the XBox360.. Damn not much different and the upgradable firmware chip Globe360 isn't doing much

    Welcome to the board. Feel free to read the topic so you can see that this is exactly what people are talking about here!

    To elaborate on what we know:
    The CycloWiz and Wiinja have exactly the same feature set. Exactly, regardless of what that review (ad) says.
    The only difference is installation style and price.
    That "review" as I hinted at before is really an ad for the Cyclowiz.

    Anyone knows if these modchips are capable to read multiboot GC discs? And if exists any way to make multiboot discs using totally a 4,7Gb disc?
    Thanks!

    They all support games with muliple game disks, if that's what you mean. The Wii handles this slightly differently than the gamecube (also handles the streaming audio differently) so the chips don't need to do anything special unlike with the gamecube chips. Having multiple GC games on one disk is a tricky thing at best, and will most likely need some sort of homebrew software which can't be developed yet as we cannot run unsigned code on the Wii without a mobo chip, of which there are none.
