    Hey just wondering, i am recieving my wiinja in the mail from wiinjanortthamerica this week and was just wondering if there was a way you can tell the 2 versions apart. i think i'm recieving the v1 chip as no one from there site confirmed if they shipped the new one or the old on, and thinking i'm gonna have to send it back in but just wonderin if there is a difference somehow. As aposed to just here-say. thanks in advanced guys appreciate it [​IMG]

    Just solder it in a D2B Wii and see if it works!

    OK, not really practical.
    I'm not sure, I have a V1 and it had no distinctive markings.

    There is no way to tell them apart except for a feature test.

    As shtonkalot says, stick one in the D2B chipset Wii and see if it works, or, wire up the disable feature and see if that works.

    The disable feature is pin 3 on the Wiinja, to the middle pin on the reset switch. Powering up the Wii with reset pressed as well will cause the Wiinja v2 to be disabled and your disc won't be recognised. If the backup is recongnised, you have a v1.

    Most likely if you get DRE, you have a v1 [​IMG]

    I had a Wii that threw DRE every minute of so on some games, I changed the Wiinja over for a V2, and not a single error now [​IMG]
