    (Video) Wii Loads Backups Without Mod Chip

    That’s right, a modder managed to load backups on the Nintendo Wii, without using a modchip, but rather
    LPT. Video after the jump.

    A modified Nintendo Wii boots a backup of Red Steel. There is no modchip in the Wii, there is a
    parallel port cable soldered to the drive board. The cable costs under 3 dollars to make

    You're a little bit slow, aren't you?
    This mod has several different versions and is being discussed in several threads for some time now.

    whats the difference between soldering a cable to the drive board and soldering the a Mod chip on.

    They both sound like the are 'mod'ifying the stock system to me.
    stupid title getting my hopes up.

    Its a real pain in the ass considering your Wii has to be tethered to your computer at all times in order for this mod to work.

    Instead of a tiny chip on your Wii, you can have an entire computer!
