    so far drivechips have had no problems with firmware, and they will not brick your wii

    personally i dont like argon, because they steal homebrew without giving credit, but that is just me

    you can only get a brick with the chip, if you install a disc update from a game which is not your region e.g. pal or ntsc-j


    edit: i have a d2pro and i am happy with it

    i mean: if you only want to play backups and do nothing else with your wii, the biggest problem is, that you might install an update from an another region. i think you have a ntsc-u wii, since you have an american flag under your nick and if you want to play a pal or ntsc-j game and you update from this gama by accident, your wii will be bricked.
    this can not happen, when you have no modchip ;-)
    i hope you can understand it know. it is nearly 1 am in germany and my brain is already in bed [​IMG]

    If I am not mistaken all of the drive key type of chips still currently work at only 3x. I have not heard if the Argon 2 can work any faster but, I don't believe so.
