    I have been scouring 3 different sites including this one tring to figure out what is the best approach to modding my Wii. Inataly I want to get a solderless chip and was looking into the Wasabi Zero. Since this will be used by young users too I need it to be as easy to use as putting a Og copy in. I am worried the I will have the epoxy around the chip to prevent me from putting it on. This is what I got from Wii Drive Chip Database:

    Your drive most likely has the following chipset:

    * There is a 75% chance the chipset is GC2-D2E and covered in black glue.
    * And there is also a 25% chance the chipset is GC2-D2B with cut pins.

    The following data is used to calculate and estimate the drive chip:

    * LU6187XXXX GC2-D2E and covered in black glue (1 entries)
    * LU6175XXXX GC2-D2B with cut pins (1 entries) Derv: 616562
    * LU616946716 - Entered serial - middle point
    * LU6168XXXX GC2-D2E and covered in black glue (1 entries) Derv: 97333
    * LU6168XXXX GC2-D2E and covered in black glue (1 entries)

    So I assume I have a GC2-D2E. What can I use with this chip. Wasabi has it in there list. Will the pins e cut? Epoxy?

    Alternatively is the softmod. How easy it to use for youngsters? What game are NOT working if its 90% computable.

    Basicaly I want to here from the community. Softmod vs. Chip.

    Looks like you probably have a D2E with Epoxy.

    You can use Wasabi, Wiikey2, D2pro, pretty much any of the newer chips... you just won't be able to use a clip solution.
