    Well I haven't got a Wii yet and now i really want one so I can install a Wiinja chip. I take it the chance of me getting one of the new chipsets is pretty high. I read that there is a series of serial numbers to look for. Is there truth to this? What should i be looking at to ensure that my Wii can be modded? I obviously cannot disassemble the unit at the store. I don't want to get one and find out I'm stuck!

    Maybe if you ebay you can ask for the first 4 digits of the serial from the seller.

    You might be better waiting till V2 of the chip comes out, so it works on all wiis.

    I thought the serial number had to be before LEH1100. So seeing this is letters, what do serial numbers look like? K??, H?? etc. etc.??
