Hello.

I installed on my Wii today the Hombrew channel, everything went fine.
My wii is 4.2.

Im planning to buy a chip, but i dont know if its worth buying right now with this new update.

I want to mention that i dont care about the region free thing, i just want that my chip will play without a problems all my burned game on my specific region.

Should i wait, or i can already buy ?
I wanted to buy the WiiKey 2 but i was fool enough to update my wii, so now i dont know what to do.

Thank you.

No, i prefer not to play with the inside of my Wii.
I better wait to see how the chips working with the new 4.2.
I will be glad to read more comments, especially from those who already have the 4.2 with chipped WII.

from what I've seen for headlines in the past since 4.2 has come out, many people are having issues with modchips and 4.2 with certain games not playing.
It's mainly the region compatibility.

Trucah signing IOS70 (on 4.2 of course) should (meaning it has worked fine with all my games) get same region games working (with my WiiKey). So I guess it will be the same thing with other mod chips.

EDIT: with other earlier modchips.

dude ill sell you an extra driekey i have for $25 if your willing to do it yourself.

another guy posted a while back and he said that he got a "modchip" installed, which turned out to be a cioscorp installation.

dont risk it man, unless they're like uber legit.

plus, installing a drivekey is the literally easy as pie.

    Eventhough the New 3DS XL is more powerful, I still feel like the DS Lite was a more polished system. It's a real shame that it never got an XL variant keeping the GBA slot. You'd have to go on AliExpress and buy an ML shell to give a DS phat the unofficial "DS Lite" treatment, and that's the best we'll ever get I'm afraid.

    The phat model had amazingly loud speakers tho.

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Jayro, I don't see whats so special about the DS ML, its just a DS lite in a phat shell. At least the phat model had louder speakers, whereas the lite has a much better screen.

    They probably said "Hey, why not we combine the two together and make a 'new' DS to sell".

    It's a DS Lite in a slightly bigger DS Lite shell.

    It's not a Nintendo / iQue official product, it's a 3rd party custom.

    Nothing special about it other than it's more comfortable than the Lite
