    Hi Guys,

    I just bought a Wii on Sunday and it has the GC2-D2C chip inside, so unmoddable.

    I have two choices.

    1. Wait. Which is cool cause I'm in no rush. I've got Zelda which will take me a long time to finish since I don't have that much free time to game.

    2. Try to exchange it with someone that has an older Wii. I'd rather not do this, cause I don't know what kind of condition that Wii was kept in. Also, are there bugs in the older Wii's that were smoothed out in the later release?

    So, I know that with this type of thing, no one can say definitly when the GC2-D2C will be cracked but what is the community saying as far as timeline. I'm already seeing reports of people claiming that it has already been done, but that also seems to be false news.

    Also, is the GC2-D2C more or less uncrackable? So, basically don't bother waiting cause it won't happen, and just exchange for an older Wii now? Or can we expect a chip in the next month or two...

    Appreciate your insight.

    Thanks!

    Just wait for a bios modchip instead of a drive chip

    What's an approximate ETA on that? Is this like the flash of the drive on the Xbox 360?

    Thanks!

    I would say they will crack D2C before the end of the year.

    I will be happy as long as they crack D2C before thanksgiving. So hopefully that is plenty of time to do so.

    Cool. Doesn't seem like too much of a wait then.

    How are the original versions of Wii? Any weird glitches/bugs/mod chip problems?

    Thanks!

    someones said that a chip called wiimars works on d2c on here the other day
    but if you check out the site
    wii-mars.com i think
    you can see that it looks fairly unreliable...for one they spell website wrong...
