    Good morning all,
    As much as I didnt want to, my first real post to this wonderful forum is asking a question ;)

    My friend has asked me to install a drivechip into his wii.
    As it has been about 4yrs since I done my own, I can see alot has changed (mine was a D2B, with the drivechip dremeled and YOASM installed, lol!!)

    The model number he gave me is 'LEM1100xxxx', but I cant see any reference to that on the Wii drive database, even a simple google search comes back with nothing.

    All I know is that the unit is just over a year old and bought from Comet here in the UK.

    Has anyone else come across one?

    Thanks in advance
    Cooperman

    Could it be from the new Wii's with no GC ports etc built in? @DeadlyFoez might know.

    The only thing you can do with that wii to hard mod it is a WODE. There is no drive chip that can be used with it. So get a WODE, replace the drive, or just use softmods.

    Hi KiiWii and deadlyfoez,
    Arghh, shucks.. does that mean its one of the latest revisions that won't even let me swap out the drives PCB?
    That's a shame..

    Still other people with YAOSM around, that's cool. :)

    Afaik you can swap drives or drive PCBs on all Wiis without a problem.

    Drive swapping is possible, BUT, You can not put an older logic board (one that can use a modchip) on to a newer driver because they changed the connector that controls the laser.
