    Maybe YAOSM.
    1.9 is a now slightly outdated version. Current stable release is 2.0 and 3.0 is upcoming

    Wiikey is currently at version 1.19, but you said he was out of them so I don't know.

    YAOSM is an open source mod chip. To update it, you'll have to have a programmer.

    Why don't you just open up your Wii and find out what chip is in it?

    Try eBay or Play-Asia for a tri wing screwdriver. I ordered mine from Play-Asia for $5.29 shipped, so its not bad.

    Check out Dealextreme for a good deal on a tri-wing. I got mine for much cheaper than Play-Asia, only $.95 shipped.
