    I use yaosm. It's very nice if you've got the hardware and know-how to burn your own chips. If not, it can be a pain anytime the chip needs to be updated (e.g. super mario galaxy). The only way to update is to take the chip out and reburn the newer firmware and put it back in. I installed yaosm for several of my friends and family, but when SMG came out, it was a royal pain getting their chips all updated. If your guy is a good friend that wouldn't mind helping out if you need an update, then go for it.

    got a quesiton for wiikey / cyclowiz.
    do you just download the upgrade .iso off their respective website and put the dvd in and it updates?

    or do you have to have the on/off switch for the cyclowiz in order to update?

    also, if you have a cylowiz and want to get YAOSM on it, can you just download a yaosm dvd and just insert it to update it? or do you have to flash it with a pc-flasher?

    If I were you, I'd wait for YAOSM 3.0 that will have psuedo DVD upgradability.

    GBATemp factory.
    Remember YOASM 3.0 will use the VERY small EPROM on the PIC.
    Therefore it can only be used for VERY small updates [​IMG]

    I forgot to mention that. From what I read its currently not possible to update the entire chip.

    If your going to get it installed make sure you have the guy do the external install so it is much easier to program if if you ever get a programmer

    Yes, this is very important. I've done all of my installs so that the chip goes into a socket that sits in the second gamecube memory slot. The chip is still hidden, but I don't have to open my wii to change it out.
