OK...I am utterly confused when it comes to modding consoles, such as the Wii. If it were about NDS or GBA - I'd be fine and be able to understand most of the information on what to do. I have no idea on how to get the ISOs and burn them and trim them, patch them, etc...but that's not the question I need to be answered, as I will worry about that later and dig that information up. Tommorow, I'm sending my Wii disc drive to Takrin, a member of GBAtemp, so that he can solder the modchip into my console (he'll do it for free). So, I've included my Wiikey Clone in the package with the Wii disc drive. It's a clone, should I still use it;Will it differ ANY with the orignal one? Will it function the same, or should I go ahead and dish out 30 or so dollars for a real one? Should I use the Wiikey, or it's Clone, at all? I'm completely safe? It works with most backups and doesn't screw your system up if there is a firmware update (I've never updated it, the same firmware it came with when I bought it)? I've got other modchips that I can consider. Takrin offered me the following modchips at the little price of 6 dollars each: Wiifree Openwii Wiinja v2 Chiip I don't know about any of them, except the Wiinja, which I probably won't purchase (I thought I'd include it anyways) I'm leaning towards the Wiikey because, as it is said in the review, is easy to use. I want a chip that functions well, of course, and has updates every now and then (Wiikey being an exception, of course ) Of this sounds like garbage, please excuse and ask questions so that I may clarify. Please help me make this decision, as it is my Wii we're talking about!
