Wii Modchip Incompatibility Warning Particular model renders chips useless Update #2: The CycloWiz team have CONFIRMED that their chip is also incompatible with the D2B Panasonic chipset. The also mention that the chances of finding a Wii with the D2B chipset is higher if you purchased your Wii in late January/early February. New information: the problem has been confirmed by several sources including the Wiinja team themselves, and affects all the 1st-generation modchips (those using the same method as Wiinja). It goes without saying that all the teams are working on it and should soon ship a fixed version to retailers! If you own a "first-gen" Wii, there is however no problem and the modchips will still work properly. We expect our Wiinja sample to arrive by tomorrow, so stay tuned as we will be posting exclusive pics and videos! Heads up to all of you that are planning to install one of the three currently announced modchips into your Wii! Users on the official Wiinja forums have discovered that a particular model of the Wii's DVD drive is incompatible with the current modchips. The code/method currently used on the Wiinja and possibly the CycloWiz and WiiKey don't affect the drive and the chips are useless once installed. Regardless of what another news site says, this means even if you install the WiiKey and the possibly upgradeable CycloWiz, you won't be able to boot the necessary disc to update the chip if they do update the code to support this drive model. Currently the only way known to check what drive model you have, is to open your Wii and check the following chip on the DVD drives PCB. The version shown below - "GC2-D2B" is the incompatible drive model. If you'd like to share any more information you have on this issue, then please share it in this thread. Please note: This is simply a small warning. The issue has not been confirmed, but maybe this thread will help gather information on the issue and find out exactly what is causing the problem.
