    Something I saw on the frontpage of the Wiinja;

    So aside from sending the pic back and having an invoice, the PIC also has to be unused.

    improved read method means that you get no DREs with non-high quality dvds.
    wiinja v.2.0 is on stores yet, and yes, it's compatible with any actual wii out there, so it becomes again the best modchip we can get.

    Less DRE's, other chips claiming region freeness, seems like updating would have been a nice feauture after all...
    Pretty fucked up for the people that already have one already now... especially for those who paid the full price...

    That's what happens when you buy a chip that can't be updated. Don't blame the Wiinja guys for that. If you don't like it, buy Wiikey or any other chip that can be updated and don't support non-updatable chips.

    Well, the chip itself can be updated easily. If there were code released anyone with half a brain and a PIC programmer could flash it.

    Yeah, but you'd need to open up your console to do that and that's not really feasible, now, is it? [​IMG]

    Not if the chip is "frozen" in code. Something about burning the fuses in place... I don't really know about those things, but it seems the way they distribute the Wiinja it is not upgradeable.

    And yeah, early adopters should not complain. They knew what they were getting in with. They knew there would be better options very shortly after.

    You'd need to open it again [​IMG]. That wouldn't be an issue for me if I would own a Wiinja and if it would get me less DRE, but hey that's just me.

    Also, people who bought the Wiinja did (or at least should have) indeed known that this was an early hack, not fully complete. As always there is room for improvement. Anyone with a D2B chipset however can get a replacement. Anyway, just popping the news [​IMG].

    Does this mean the people that bought the Wiinja V1 can get a free upgrade if they send the chip back?

    Well as stated the chip has to be unused. So if you already have the wiinja and the DMS chipset then you have probably installed the chip so it will be used. I bet the people that used a chip socket to install are happy they did now lol

    I suppose it's a stupid question, but what means "stealth mode" in the wiinja v2 specifications?

    Stealth mode is basically meant to mean that the Wii can't detect it, meaning that nintendo wouldn't be able to released updates etc that would affect the chip and possibly brick the device.
