    None of the DIY chips at the moment because they all need to be taken out and reprogrammed when an update comes out dont they?

    The only thing the WiiFree can't do that the WiiKey does is the region free compatibility. It's been being updated so much that I'm sure that will change in probably only a month.

    At the moment, WiiKey is king. I think that open-source solutions will soon lead the pack by adding new features, etc., and the retail chips will use these ideas and eventually play catch-up.
