    Ok so today I went to get a wii mod and this guy that does them tells me he wont do Wiikey as WiiD is the new standard...

    I have never heard of the WiiD have you? Please throw some comments my way!!

    http://www.wiidmod.com/index.html

    Its says they got an update in April 2007 - says good but there is no sellers in America who sell the mod which sounds bad (Canada, Europe, Asia and South America are there though)???

    So does anyone knw more about this mod!!

    By the way its $125 AU for the mod and installation..

    IT basically a PIC with quick install points on it right?

    So basically it's nothing more than a rip of open source codes?

    Saw my first WiiD chip yesterday here in Texas. It's just a 12F pic in a surface mount package on a board. Works the same as all the opensource chips.

    WiiD is nothing more than Wiinja Deluxe on a PCB. Divineo even ripped off his config discs.

    If you can get to the pins yes... but it's surface mounted

    Where abouts are you Farami9? I see a USA flag but you are talking $AU.
    I do installs for $50 AU +$10 for an open source chip of choice or bring your own commercial/OS chip.
    And I do installs for $30 AU for GBAtemp members.
    Not trying to suggest that you use me in particular just giving you an idea of other pricing. That guy sounds expensive.

    I'd say this new standard he speaks of is really just 'I can buy these chips for half the price of WiiKey and still charge the same'.

    To program the chip to a WiiFree or YAOSM or even Wiinja or OpenWii code is certainly possible but you would likely have to solder some wires to the legs of the chip and connect those to a programmer.
    I have done this with the surface mount PIC chips not soldered to a PCB but it wouldn't make much of a difference.
    None of the open source PIC based mods support DVD upgrade though.
