    Not trying to flame or start anything but why spend money buying a modchip when you can softmod it for free?

    Ah. True true. Yeah I learned the hard way when I accidentally updated to 4.2U and had a few days of not being able to play my backups. It's really not that bad and now I know just say no to updates and wait it out until the Homebrew community has worked things out. But if hardmod is what you want anyway I've found the following site while looking for replacement cases for the Wii: http://www.consolesource.com/ecomm/catalog...-p-1-c-266.html
    They have chips there for less than $75 but I have no clue how good they are.

    I also did a google search "site:gbatemp.net Consolesource missed shipping" and didn't really find anything.

    Hmm. Actually, after you mentioned "never buy" I searched for that and it sounds like a "Your Mileage My Vary" type thing. Some people get their things fine and others get bad experiences.

    I ordered a solderless wiikey 2 and other stuff from these guys:
    http://www.techsick.com/shop/

    They send you shipment updates/tracking numbers via email. Shipping from them (Australia) to U.S. only take 2 days and you can track it.
