    Hey all,

    I just random visited Wiikey.cn and they (out of a sudden) had a count down on their site.

    Now the question is:
    What kind of count down thing is it?

    Countdown to the New World Order?
    Or.. WiiKey v1 update?

    Wiikey v3 modchip?

    WiiKey USB Programmer?

    Some homebrew app / contest?
    A PC app that will remove 002 etc from Wii games.

    A countdown to take down the WiiKey site , and the whole team?

    Edit:
    It's even in a add of the sponsors on WiiNewz

    Possibly a new model like that of the d2sun.. a chip with a flash memory that is able to rip & boot discs?

    I´d tip on the v3 mod chip, so they can dish their v2 modchip owners, like they did with their v1 modchip owners.

    Modchips are getting more and more useless. In the past you had faster reading speed, much better brick recover possibilities and 100% games compatilbity. Now you have the highest speed and comfort using an usb loader, the brick recovery methods a modchip offers is poor even compared to preloader and only works under complicated circumstances. Only leaving the 100% games compatiblity, is that really worth all the work and money for 2-3 games?

    I agree 100%. Why bother with a modchip anymore... ?

    Not everyone knows about Homebrew.

    Secondly, if Nintendo ships/update Wii's which really can't be modified. (As in softmod or even stopped from running Homebrew.)
    A Hardmod is the way.

    I still like Hardmod for Disc Loading the most.
    Softmod fails for Disc Loading. A Hardmod PWNs the Softmod at Disc Loading, no excuse.
    (USB Loader is win though. [​IMG] - Sadly no GC loading yet though.)

    Oh sorry, i forgot about GC again, that's really one GOOD argument for modchips. It's true that modchips are a little more future proof. But aren't there issues with changed mainboard stuff that prevents modchips for quite some time, similar to the time a new firmware update is "safe"?
