    it would depend on the type of wii you have, for a d2c wii a some good modchips would be d2ckey, and the argon chip, for d2a and d2b chipset you can go forr the wiikey for cyclowiz

    Wiikey works fine with any current firmware version (3.1 at time of post). I don't think any mod is affected by what firmware your wii is at the moment, outside of their config discs which have long since been fixed.

    To install you'll need

    Soldering iron
    Solder
    If you're not doing the quick solder install , then wire. AWG30 kynar wire is good.
    Maybe some flux.
    Screwdrivers to open the console.
