    When the chips first started coming out I ordered a Wiid chip. I tried to install it, and I got one game to work, and then my wouldn't cone on. I am a very poor at soldering so I just removed it and never reinstalled it and it is just laying here in a plastic bag with the triwing screwdriver. Now, I can't find much info about them on any of the major gaming sites and using the search enging only brings up old results. Whatever happened to them. Are they even still made? Are they clones of another chip? Are they crap chips? The website for them hasent changed in ages and i think they may have had an update a year ago or something... anyway does anyone have one of these or any info about them? thx guys.

    the chip is quite old. it's only working in the first and second generation of the wii-drive-ics (d2a, d2b). nintendo stopped to use those drives over a year ago. there are 3 or 4 generations of new wii-drive between those where you could use a wiid and the current drives. but for the old drives its a good solution and its easy to install. you can find all the information you need at following website: http://wiidmod.com/index.html
