    I'm banner bricked with a bad wad on the first channel page and from what I've read which is loadssssssss I need a mod chip so I can load wad manager autoboot CD via the Gamecube controller method.

    Thanks.

    that site you ordered from looks really fishy.

    like this listing. correct me if i am wrong, but dont new black wii's have drives that can't read burned media? so wouldnt putting a modchip in be useless, and a waste of money?

    You can replace the wii drive, which is probably what they did when they installed the mod chip. Modchip + new drive = able to read backups. That said, I haven't heard of them so that's still something to be cautious about.

    That site is totally legit. My chip came quick 1st class recorded delivery. Search Google for ghost2fitter and a lot of people reccomend the site. Wii was un-bricked in 20mins with BootMiiDiisc v1
