    Hey modder [​IMG] *waves* (welcome to our great community)

    Haha, i didnt notice that...Wonder why they say it is upgradable but dont put it down in thier chart....I guess we'll find out soon if the cyclowiz is really upgradable.

    http://www.neoasic.com/images/all-wiikey-logo.jpg: Theres a picture there.

    Doesnt the fact that it can be updated without the use of a switch scare anyone? Surely if nintendo could find out how they update the chip via dvd then surely they can put something on a game to flash the chip?

    If that the case... your able recover flash chip by via DVD and improve having flash lock.
    however I don't think nintendo build such thing as re-flash mod data it legally and event might cause any damage to our wii console. (some countries are modchip-free)

    Far I know they can ban you using wii internet (like the xbox-live) or update the wii system.

    Anyone else notice that the cutout area above "c2" looks like it is an unstated contact point?

    It's only there not to cover a certain pin on the board, you can see it on the picture.

    Possibly just the flash of the camera, the chip doesn't seem to have a silverish ring on wiikey.cn

    C2 is probably Capacitor 2, if you pay attention, there is a capacitor right there [​IMG]
