Since many people are struggling to get all the development for the D2C chips clear, I tried to make a small overview that can help them. I know most people want to mod their Wii before the Christmas time, so this might be usefull. Here are all the chips that are released now, or will be released this year for the D2C Wii's. D2Ckey (http://www.d2ckey.com) The D2Ckey is the first chip that managed to play backups and regionfree games for the D2C Wii's. The developers from Wiikey have managed to integrate the Wiikey functions into this chip. The D2Ckey will be updatable, but only when the chip will finally be detected. This means that it will takes some months to come up with a solution after the chipis recognized by the Wii, however the possiblity to update is there. All you have to do is buy the chip, solder it with 31 (!!) wires into your Wii and play. + Positive results in gametests + From the Wiikey developers + No Nintendo safety has detected this chip + High availability in webshops + Updatable in the future by USB programmer (confirmed by email from D2Ckey-team) - No USB updater, and no update info will be availible untill neseccery - Higher price compared to D2B chips - 31 wires to solder ___________________________________________________________ WiInfectus (http://www.infectus.biz) The WiInfectus chip is a microcontroller that can be programmed. It can be integrated in every console, the only thing you need is firmware that support the modding of that console. The firmware for modding the D2C Wii is coming december 2007 and needs to be programmed with a special programmer kit. + Usable for multiple consoles (360/PS3/Wii) + Program own software + Updatable software + Integrated programmer for updating software - Not D2C compatible yet, firmware coming this month - Why would you buy an expensive chip that can mod 5 consoles? - Relative expensive - No hugh availibility - No test results yet ___________________________________________________________ Argon (http://www.infectus.biz) The Argon comes from the same team as the previous mentioned WiInfectus chip. It can be considered as the light edition of that chip which is specialized for the D2C Wii. You have to buy a programmer kit to program updates for the chip. The chip has only 13 solder point compared to the 31 of D2CKey + Updatable software + Some sort of WiInfectus-light-edition, specialized for D2C Wii's + Same price as the D2Ckey + Only 13 wires to solder - Need to buy JTAG-USB cable/programmer to program it - No programmer availible untill updates are neseccery - Only 4000 pieces availible this year - No test results yet ___________________________________________________________ FOR MORE RECENT UPDATES AND INFORMATION CHECK THE TOPIC!
