    Does anyone know what batch of consoles has those chips? Newer? Older? European?

    DAMN ... do i have to cancel my order?
    I wonder if cyclowiz can handle it ... beeing updateable ...
    Just bought 3 Wii-games and 2 of them were crap, so i want to test some with modchip if they are worth buying (or only worth playing). Wii-games are that expansive, i nearly think i have the right to play "more" for my money [​IMG]

    is it really proven ??? only one person reported that problem ... and if you look at the picture above, only 3 wires are soldered ... isn't it why it doesn't work ??

    Yes I'm with you on this one, wii games have this irritating tendency to expand themselves everywhere ! man ! it's disgusting !

    The thing with the Cyclowiz...what good is it being upgradable if the Wii rejects it in the first place?

    there are 5 wires to solder

    Clock, input, output like the picture on my first post
    The two others are for power supply and on wii PCB there are many differents points where you can find them [​IMG]

    for example :

    Buy it, check it return/keep it. Chances of having the proper chip (counting on the fact that this is a real problem, not a one guy thing) is currently the best I guess (if this is a "new version" problem now is the highest chance of getting one from an old batch).

    Still, closest points are those that the Wiinja team and cycloteam use.

    Hi

    latest (confirmed by a lot if sites/forums) information:

    Wiinja is NOT working with "WII Version 2" which got a new Chip inside. You have to open your Wii to check which chip you got, can (at the moment) not be identified by the serial.

    Cyclowiz will probably (better: surely) have the same problem, even if this is not confirmed, since both Chips use same method and share the main code.

    The fact that a lot of sites are stating it doesn't mean it's true. If there are more then one user report then I'll become a believer [​IMG].

    I hope this isnt true. Maybe he didnt install it properly or something. I need to find me a tri-wing screwdriver so i can get my wii open and check.

    The wires on this pic are all wrong. 1 and 8 arn't going to the correct points and the cluster of 3 points arn't even the correct ones.
