    What Wii Version do you have?
    Not a lot of people use Mod Chip now a days.

    Yes, you can still use them, but you're not going to find one cheap: they don't make them anymore and no public solderless chip was turned opensource. If you're good at soldering and have an old Wii drive, you could always get a WiiFree by getting samples from MicroChip.

    I got a WODE Jukebox for £35 but that was very lucky of me, and it was from Australia.

    Your able to see your Wii Version of your Wii System in "Wii Options" "Wii Settings", and you will notice your version of the Wii.
    X.XU = North American/America Wii
    X.XE = European Wii
    X.XK = Korean Wii
    X.XJ = Japan Wii

    There is a new complete way to mod the Wii using the Homebrew Channel, using Letterbomb, and its a lot safer than Mod Chip. Unless you really want to use mod chip you can still use it. But it will be really hard to use, and you will encounter a lot of issues upon modding the Wii

    See here for tutorial;

    http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Homebrew_setup


    See here for SD Card Compatibillity, note; if the SD works with Twilight Hack, and Homebrew you are golden to use that SD Card. If one or the other does not work as well, or at all it will not be compatible with other apps for Homebrew.

    (I would recommend Kingston 4GB if your just going to mod this for games.)

    This guide will also help you avoid bricks.

    I would avoid installing TrechaBug. To install it. It requires WAD File use which is confusing, and there is no way to uninstall it if something goes wrong.

    The brick protection is all you really need.
