    I intend to buy a new wii in the US, and I would like to ask 3 questions :

    - I read that the newer models have a change in the controller chip or something like that (black epoxy etc.),
    and I would like to know which mod chips can be installed on these new models.

    - What solderless chips can be used with these new models ?

    - Is there some other way to run backups without installing a chip ?
    (I read there is some twilight hack, but does it work with the newer models ?)

    Thank you very much for your help :-)

    drivekey, flatmod and flatmii can be installed in every wii, all solderless

    as long as your new wii doesnt have firmware 4.0 the twilight hack will work.

    new wii's have a newer version of boot1, so you cant use backup loaders, but the usb launcher will work

    to know which usb hdd's will work, look in my sig
