    I am about to get a Wii, and would like to know what mod chip to get (and where)..

    I have ALOT of GC backups, and whatever mod I get needs to be able to play GC backups.. Also I would like a mod chip that is being activly updated. I would hate to get one that a firmware or some other update causes not to work..

    thanks..

    I think WiiKey would be a good choice now when the 1.3 config disc has been released.

    Well after a reading a few reviews, and looking at their site, I have gone ahead and ordered the wiikey.. seems it will do the trick and looks easy enough to install.

    100% It's literally IMPOSSIBLE to buy a D2B without Cut legs or a D2B with cut legs. They are REALLY hard to come buy, seriously dont even thing about modding it. until a d2c modchip comes out you'll be legal on that thing [​IMG]

    The likeliness that the wii you buy now has a D2C chip is near 100%.
    Also "actively updated" doesn't apply to WiiKey that much. Yes they've released their update recently, but Wiinja had their 3rd updates months ago, while WiiKey promised their update would be released soon, even before that.

    Just because they finally release their update because it had been leaked out before anyway, doesn't mean they are actibely updating...



    Anyway, I don't think you'll be seeing any interesting updates for any chips soon, as drive chips don't allow much more then allowing backups to play.
    And I guess you need to wait for D2C compatible mod chips anyway, or find a pre-modded wii somewhere...

    Yeah i got a wii about a month ago and it did have a D2C chip, but luckily my friend at work had an older wii she traded me so i could mod it since they dont care about modding their wii.

    Also supposedly in 10 days there will be a D2C modchip, the only problem is it might be a 30 wire installation, check out this link.

    I knew I camped out for a launch unit for a good reason. [​IMG]
