    Hey guys! Im currently running a custom 4.0 IOS system menu with a Wiikey v1 1.9s. I recently read the new DriveKey modchip review and the chip looks awesome! Im thinking about upgrading but my Wiikey is soldered on with small wires. Is it worth it?

    Drivekey gives 3X Disc Reading Speed.

    If your not planning on updating in the near future, use the USB Loader.

    If your planning on updating and if the backup loaders ever stop working, get a conventional chip that will give 6X reading speed such as the Wiikey 2.

    i don't understand why anyone would even bother with a hardmod (chips) anymore.
    usbloader is all you need and you don't need a chip to get it.
    i actually took my d2pro out because i don't like having worthless shit soldered on inside my wii.

    same here. I took out my d2ckey. it was a crappy pre-release that wouldn't play some games. with softmods and sd/usbloader, all my games are playable.

    WOW......is it waninkoko the ModChip manufacturer killer..??? just like video killed the radio stars..?? [​IMG] Well I'm actually thinking on buying a ModChip (maybe an Argon or some upgradable one) because i really like to use the discs, and cause I haven't found a good deal for a 1TB HDD (main reason [​IMG])


    EDIT: Oh and DriveKey is the biggest scam in Wii Hacking history really, period.
