    Hi all,

    I haven't really been keeping up with the newest modchips since I have the original wii from launch date. However, a close friend of mine just got a Wii, and his son likes to use his PS2 games as flying discs. So I would like to chip it for him so that he can back up his games.

    The question I have is, is there any new Chips out there for the newest Wiis? Last I read, they were fully covering the chip so the solderless or anything else wouldn't work.

    Thanks for the help.

    Use a soft mod like the gamma loader - theres loads of threads on it - use SEARCH instead of NEW TOPIC and youll be on your way

    Doesn't gamma loader have problems with sync in games like rock band and such? I am trying to avoid those issues for him. The simpler the better.

    But thanks for the response.

    Dont buy a Wiikey 2, it has some major probs !! check out wiinewz if you dont believe me. Get either a D2pro or Wasabi Zero, I prefer wasabi.

    I swear i responded to this thread last week, must of been deleted ?

    There are new board where you can't install Modchips on (yet?)

    Use FlatMii or WiiZii than instead (I should choose WiiZii once it is out since it also plays burned backups not only from your PC/HDD like FlatMii witch is released)

    Gamma and Softchip are great. Synching issues? I've never had any of such. In fact, i never had issues at all.
    But that obviously does not mean that there aren't any.
