    Botch has posted a version of the Wiinja v2 hex for use with Datel's Drive Doctor, using this we can boot backups without using a modchip,(does require abit of soldering) but its worth it for the region free GCN and full GCN support, since he is making Xeno GC for drive doctor

    Get the Wiininja V2 Hex that is bootable on the Datel Drive Doctor here

    Right, but it requires soldering. It's a modchip.

    I wouldn't call it a modchip per se, but a data cable like WAB's , but in all senses i guess it could be called a modchip

    Why not just buy and install a modchip?

    because with this , you could make this a Xeno GC modchip, which would allow for far better GCN compatibility than any other wii modchip now

    how is this a softmod? [​IMG]

    from the looks of the install pics, its just the same as any modchip. I can't see anything revolutionary at all here.
    Plus wasn't there already some type of mod made that uses the PC to change DVD firmware on the fly?
