    I know I have a D2B Wii, and am thinking of either Cyclowiz or Wiikey. Which is best for me? Also, I know nothing about soldering a chip. I have no idea how to that. Any advice at all?

    Cylcowiz is good
    -Good Upgrade support
    -An active forum
    -Support opensource firmares(Only modified firmware for Cyclo is wiifree atm)
    -Never had problems with it my self all games tried worked no slowdowns
    -All my DVD's i had in house worked which where(Sony - r and Philips +r)
    -Upgrade chip, Nintendo never can overwrite it!, unlike other chips Nintendo can just make a fake update for such chip and overwrite it blank

    EDIT:
    Seems someone is porting a Yaosm Port for CycloWiz
    He did release a beta and it only have some bugs
    Here it is, http://www.teamcyclops.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1545
    But i would use it yet as there is only one beta tester which is reporting after config disk it can't play backups
    So it's not recommend to use it yet
    But just want to let you know there is work in process for other firmware [​IMG]
