    They all do the same thing, why bother?

    Yeah but chips have disadvantages and some advantages that other chips dont have.
    Just a hypothetical question. [​IMG]

    Yes, but they can't both be used at the same time - a switch will need to be installed.

    There are certain chips (like the Wii-Boss) that have a flex cable and a JDM programmer with two slots for flex cables. This allows external booting of one modchip without actually having to install it.

    But, if you use an open source modchip, you really don't have many cons other than having to wait 5 extra dates for updates over the commercial ones (and sometimes the open-source updates come quicker).
