    D2Pro, Argon, or wait to see if the newly announced Wasabi Wii chip turns out to be real. Check my site for more details.

    There's a new chip coming out soon called Wasabi. It lists many good features with only a 9 wire install. The problem is that it has yet to be released, so there are no reviews of it, noone knows how good the support will be, and noone knows the price yet.

    If you're willing to wait, it's worth a look. Here's the site for it.

    I'd be worried since its based in China. Wiikey's site got taken down from China.

    u can always just ask an expert to solder your d2ckey in, it'll be worth it though

    use the d2pro , its only 15 wires or 19 if you want to bypass region, if you are not to clever with soldering to the legs you can always solder to the vias on the reverse side of the board , this is a strong joint which i have done many times ,after people have messed up trying to solder to the chips legs.
