    Wiinja Deluxe Released

    Upgradeable, RW support, imports







    [​IMG]
    The Wiinja team have released information about their latest version of the Wiinja - the Wiinja Deluxe. The chip has already been released and offers a lot of improvements and new features over the original Wiinja chips. The most important being - region free (partial), ability to update the chip via DVD and the support for re-writeable DVD discs! Take a look at the list of new features below.
    As you can see the Wiinja Deluxe now boasts features to put it on-par with other modchips such as WiiKey and Cyclowiz. Please note that the Wiinja Deluxe is an entirely new piece of hardware, and not a just an upgrade of previous models.

    I'm very tempted to buy this one
    but, i would like to know more about this:

    "Boots NTSC Backups on PAL WII Partially"

    does this just mean some NTSC games will be booted or that some method/technique is used to allow them to boot.

    In my opinion this means it just boots some games, and some will not work properly.

    I like the sound of the Easy Soldering & Remove feature. Hopefully its another quick solder method which is easy to remove.

    Dam, i just purchased the Wiinja V2 this afternoon after finding out about the partial region free patcher. Hmm, i guess it doesn't matter too much. as long as i can play backups I'm happy. I will buy a proper chip in 6 months or so.

    I'm surprised people are trying to buy this product. Isn't this the third version of the Wiinja released in the past month? Well hopefully it being upgradable will mean that early adopters won't get fucked over in 2 weeks when somehow another version of the chip hits. [​IMG]

    All these upgrades imply to me that they are on top of things. So at the moment this would be my chip of choice. Now where to buy?

    Did Cyclowiz ever get an update out?

    I'm starting to feel like these companies are putting "UPGRADEABLE" on their list of features as a B.S. keyword so people will buy. Since when is a PIC upgradeable?

    I'm going with the Wiip/Chiip (prolly Wiip a little more professional), and that'll be that. Cheap, quick, easy, definitely upgradeable (even if you have to remove it first), and cheap. Did I mention cheap?

    From what I've heard about the Cyclowiz, its claim to being upgradable was fake. It bascally a Wiinja.

    Early adopters are screwed over is all I see here. The Wii modchip scene requires patience, at least for now... :'(
