    So I ordered a modchip about a week ago and I got the tracking code from candapost.ca? I had a question do they ship it to USPS? Then USPS mails its to mailbox?

    The tracking number remains the same, you can follow it at Canada Post all the way through, though it will have no details until it's delivered. For example, here was mine:

    2008/10/14 07:43 2xxxx,USA Item has been received at the delivery office in the destination country
    2008/10/09 10:16 International shipment has arrived in the destination country
    2008/10/08 13:26 International item has left Canada
    2008/10/07 12:57 WINNIPEG, MB Item accepted at the Post Office

    Delivered by USPS to my mailbox

    Possible that it got held up in customs. Or because of Columbus Day? Or both? [​IMG]

    Nah. It was most likely because of Columbus day.

    2008/10/14 14:18 International item has left Canada
    2008/10/10 16:50 WINNIPEG, MB Item accepted at the Post Office

    10th - Friday - Package leaves post office
    11th- Enters another post office in Canada.
    12th -Sunday - USPS isn't accepting mail
    13th - Monday - Columbus Day - USPS isn't accepting mail

    Probably was like that.

    just got mine today. D2sun 1.5 with wiiclip v5b. Got installed and receiving blue light WOOT! but im still confused as to whether I still need to set the switches for anything? I have DMS version and have already shorted pad 1 like im supposed to, but it doesnt say anywhere if i have to set switches as well.

    My modchipcentral order:
    Oct 16: Ordered
    Oct 17: Shipped
    Oct 20: Left Canada
    Oct 25: not in today's mail. [​IMG]

    From what I've seen around the net, stuff from Canada tends to show about 7 days after leaving the country.

    So how are the orders from MCC packaged? One would think a big MODCHIPCENTRAL label would raise suspicions at customs. And hopefully they don't have Wii Mod Chip in the contents box of the customs form.

    Modchip came today. Woohoo.

    Very non-descript packaging.

    Off to learn about my Wasabi v3.

    I have nothing but good things to say about ModChipCentral. I'd delayed ordering due to the customs fear. Safe to say, it was unfounded. The package could have contained O-Pee-Chee baseball cards from an eBay auction for all anyone knows. I wish my paranoia prevented me from ordering one more day though...they had a free shipping offer the day after I ordered (laughs).

    Installation of the chip was EASY. The WiiClip allows even knuckle heads like me to work on their boxes.

    The Wasabi chip works like a champ. I still need to learn some stuff about it. The Wasabi website FAQ is very limited, mostly dealing with installation. If any Wasabi experts are willing to entertain my, no doubt, stupid questions, please shoot me a PM and save me the public embarrassment of forum posting.

    Thanks ModChipCentral. If there is anywhere you would like a happy customer to post their experience with your shop, please let me know.
