    Hi, I have been recently looking at the wii scene and found these wii clips which is handy cause I'm useless at soldering, now I know they have a different version for different chips and I know a site when I can get a pre soldered wii clip. I entered my serial into the wii chip.co.uk site and it gave me this result,

    There is a 63% chance that your drive chip is a GC2-DMS
    and a 37% chance that it is a GC2R-D2A.

    and at the top it recommends

    Wii Console Chipset type
    DMS, D2A & D2B

    Console Serial Code Range
    LEH100xxx - LEH134xxx

    Compatible Mod Chips
    WiiKey, D2Pro, D2SUN, Wasabi 2

    My main questions are

    1. Which chip from the above would be the best to install (if there is a best that is)
    2. Does updating you wii firmware have any chance of bricking the system (I'm on 3.1)

    From the wii chip site I can get any of chips above, but the d2sun or the wiikey sounds the easiest as the rest possibly need some extra work (according to the wii clip site, like shorting or soldering 1 wire).

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Yes it was a launch UK wii.

    About the wii key, do you need to do anything to it once installed like fw updates. If so how is this done.
