    Hello,

    I want to mod my wii, but I am still struggling with the question of which modchip I have to pick.

    I got a D2B Wii. Soldering is not a problem for me.

    For a long time I was thinking of wiikey, but since 1.9s looks like the last update, I don't really trust Wiikey anymore. After Wasabi was announced, I was thinking of that one, but since I haven't heard good things of Wasabi, I'm not going to pick that one.

    If someone can help me with this, I would really appreciate it

    The open source mod chips looks good, how about them? you get a choice of firmwares i believe since it is basically a PIC.

    Isn't Wasabi new to the mod chip scene? correct me if I'm wrong. If they are then you won't here a lot of good things about them if they just joined

    Sorry, I have a Wiikey and I am quite happy...where did you hear that 1.9s is the last update...yes it takes them time to get the update out...but if that is all you are going on, I would not say it is dead yet.

    I could be wrong, but I have just not heard that it (Wiikey) is dead.

    I agree Bob...that is why it seems odd to say it is the last one...everyone thought Wiikey was dead before 1.9g

    Read this: Click
    It says that 1.9s is likely the last update for the chip. So, their may be another update, but personally I doubt it.

    Can you maybe tell me something more about Wasabi then? There aren't any reviews for it, except for GBAtemp's one.

    Open-source modchips aren't really my thing. I'm not really good at building stuff.

    * It's the first chip that works on all drives, from DMS to latest D2C drives (including GC2-D1A).
    * It's the first D2C compatible chip that is upgradable from DVD.
    * It's the easiest chip to install on D2C: only 9 wires, only 3 of them connected to a pin/via.
    * It's the easiest chip to install on DMS and D2B as well: No need to use a dremel or super-glue with "cut-pin" drives, and there's no pin/via to solder even with the latest D2B boards.
    * It's the first D2C compatible chip that is as clean as DMS/D2B drivechips: full control over the drive's firmware, no physical patching on the lines while the games are running. That means perfect stability, more control, and no stress on the drive's components.
    * Best of all, it's the first chip to include a decent amount of flash memory (128KB) for firmware and data storage.

    You don't need to build stuff. Buy a Programmer and a PIC. Flash the pic with firmware and install (making
    sure you leave the pic outside the wii if you want a easy update.
