    Sounds great. Would like to see some more info on it before taking the plunge though.

    I don't like the sound of that... Does that mean you would need to pull your console apart to update the chip? Or make a hole in your console's casing?

    [​IMG] Why can't it use the wii's external usb slots?

    If it did it would be great, not having to worry about frying your DVD reader, installing the update switch.

    Edit- Oops didn't read statement properly :facepalm:. Disregard what i said [​IMG].

    Interesting. But how is it any better than the D2CKey? From what I see it's about the same except that it can be upgraded in a convoluted way that is pretty much impossible to do if you got someone else to mod it for you. Still, I"m looking forward to some reviews. Anyone know when they're gonna start being sold?

    Less wires + updateable. Updating shouldn't be a problem , even if you got someone else to mod it for you. Just make sure the ffc is routed to somewhere outside the case , then when it comes to updating just stick the usb programmer on the cable and go.

    Too bad it can't update using a disc, I dont like any wires/switches sticking out the wii.

    The problem is, these latest types of modchips simply can not use chips that can be updated via dvd.

    As people say, its not that great having a wire (or flat cable i expect) sticking out the wii. But at least people can update without openin it all up!!

    How did people install their argon flat cable?

    Im tempted to order a batch of D2 Pros for future installs, but need to know how most people install there argon flat cables as I expect its the same really.

    I also dont think D2Pro will actually need to be updated , it seems to have got all the features as the D2ckey but works with everything including SSBB..

    I just hope this doesn't leave the D2CKey left in the dust in the future.

    problem is d2cky just can not be updated. I just wonder why it doesnt work with DL version of brawl. Whether its a bad dump or just the chip.

    Makes me glad I stopped offering the d2ckey. The d2pro seems okay, although DVD updates would be ideal. The wire count is getting better too. I just do not have time for all the install requests with the time these take [​IMG]

    the d2ckey is updateable. The d2ckey TEAM can release a programmer (IF NEEDED). The pogo points on the bottom of the chip can be used. This is confirmed. As far as SSBB i am thinking it is the dump because i get the white screen error too.

    I'm wondering about this too. Can we take out one of original usb external slot and put D2pro usb jack in there instead?

    Okay...From what I have read, the D2Pro 9wire seems to be the best*or most popular* IF i was to buy it from ozmodchips, do you guys know what instalation kit I would require and is this one the easiest to install. (Price isn't an issue as long as I get the best one currently [​IMG])
    P.S. I read several times that this one is compatible with all wiis, is that true?
    Thanks!

    You need a triwing, to open the console

    You need Wires and solder



    you also need a soldering iron
    If you are good at sodlering, go for it
    If not, a lot of people are going with the solderless solutions

    Woah...Nice to meet you sir/mame. Well, is there any difference between the soldering one and non soldering? (Price/ compatibility? I am sorry but I am not use to messing with the wii)

    The D2Pro9 is compatible with all wiis (except D2C2 I believe, not sure)
    the D2Pro19 however is only D2C, and currently lacks an update to turn it into a D2Pro9 >_> (You need to solder an additional gizmo to it to turn it into a D2Pro9)
