    ask the guy who fitted the chip, if he doesn't know what he's fitting how's he pricing it? he probably knows, but doesn't want to tell you may be in case it's a crap chip. only other way to find out IS to open it up

    If it's a PIC chip, it could be WiiFree, YAOSM, OpenWii or Winja

    you could try the update discs for all of them, but then i don't know if those chips support dvd updates and they do then whether it will corrupt the chip

    No.
    Yaosm is probably the best to use, it's still in active development.
    WiiFree is dead, SMG does not work on it and there will be no more updates.
    The OpenWii project has changed to the atmega8 chip, but there is also a tuned-down version for PIC chips.
    Winnja v1 and v2 can't be updated, but the new Winnja Deluxe can

    I think that after I'll finish my exams I'll mod it with a wiikey.
    Thanks for all your support guys.
