    Hi All,

    I'm new to the forum and beginning my foray into the world of Wii-Hacking. My desire is to play some commercial ROMs (both PAL and NTSC), have access to virtual console games and maybe try a bit of homebew. My console has the Serial Number: LAH1036XXXXXX.

    I was thinking of trying OZmodchips.com for a Wii-Clip with a D2Ckey and installing it at home.

    Am I doing the right thing? Anyone had experience with this store? Are there any tips anyone can offer? Any software or other steps I need post purchase?

    Apologies in advance if this is in the wrong thread, or if there are some noob questions.

    Thanks,
    Jizmo

    Edit: SN blanked. Thanks for the suggestion.

    You don't need a modchip at all if all you want to do is play ROMs, pirate VC games and do homebrew. Just get a copy of Zelda and a SD card.

    OzModChips is a reputable store, you shouldn't have any problems with them.

    And for VC/Wiiware/Homebrew you don't even need a chip.

    Also, they are usually called ISOs if they are from a disc rather than a cartridge [​IMG]

    Wow! Thanks for the fast replies.

    Will attempt to get the words right next time [​IMG] and will definitely run the homebrew channel. Was actually more concerned as to whether I had chosen the right Chip for my Wii.

    I would remove your serial number from your post if I were you.

    Agreed, someone might steal it and claim it's theirs.

    What would someone use the serial number for...

    I suppose they could try and send it to customer service for repair using that warranty, but that's hardly a major problem, plus I don't think anyone would bother...

    Though if you are worried you can remove the last few digits...

    Wiitracker says it is most likely to be D2C, 50% chance of cut pins, so a D2Ckey should be fine. - though if you want to be absolutely sure you have to open up your wii to check [​IMG]

    Yeah, I did check out Wiitracker for that, but couldn't fathom what "cut pins" were and how they would change the chip installation.
