    Out of the corner of your eye
    There is either one available already, or it is on the WiiClip's 'coming soon' list, so to speak.

    well there is, but model b (for cut legs) doesn't seem to work and the update feature on the wiikey is reported to not work with it. it's called Wlip LINK

    i suggest you just wait for the Wii-Clip brand one to come out

    Also Wlip is a bit pricey compared to Wii-Clip

    For D2A chipsets, I'd assume that the Key Clip from Wii Clip would work fine. It requires a parallel port to flash though.

    do u know y? it would seem like it would cause it attaches to the chip not the solder points.

    Chiip / OpenWii / WiiSKAS / Wiikey doesnt work on D2C chipsets


    EDIT: also if you compare the bottom of the wii-clip V1 and the key-clip they have different contacts since the D2C requires more soldered points than the D2A/D2B

    What is a key-clip? Is it just a programmable chip like the yaosm or openwii?

    its similar to the yaosm and openwii but it actually has the "modchip" built inside of the "clip" that attaches to the chip. you use the programmer to flash the "modchip" for w/e software ie wiikey's. look at http://www.wii-clip.com/ and you should be able to understand what it is

    I'm looking at the key-clip on the wii-clip website and I don't see where the contact points contact the board. It looks as if the chip is just sitting over the top of the board...

    Oh ok thanks guys! This key clip looks like the best solution! But what about that 25 pin printing port? I don't have one of those on my computer... Do they have a printing port to usb cable or anything like that?

    Is the key-clip DVD upgradeable if you use it as a wiikey? Or would you have to take out the chip and reprogram it?

    I don't know whether it is upgradeable by DVD (I'd like to know that) but I don't see why not?
    Also, you'd need a parallel adapter. There are USB to parallel adapters. Around $10US on ebay I think.
