    Xecuter Wiip v2 Announced

    Open source, feature rich chip








    [​IMG]



    Team Xecuter has announced a new Wii modchip codenamed 'Wiip v2'. The announcement says the chip will be stable and feature rich due to the 8k Flash upgrade space. Two of the biggest draws of the chip is that the chip will be open source and will transparently involve the community in its development and that the chip will be priced competitively so that there will be no hassle from clone chips.




    The final design of the chip is set to change before release. Release is expected in the next 2-4 weeks.

    I did post about it being upgradeable via USB... but HOW does it accomplish that? I never found out..

    And I like how he says "Ultra-fast 20MHz ATMEGA8 CPU!" I realize that for that sort of application 20MHz is more than enough, but... having worked with computers for most of my life, I laugh at my dad who still uses a 500MHz P3. But then again, for a computer, 500MHz is nothing. For a tiny modchip, that's plenty.

    If it costs right, then I'll gladly buy this and toss my WiiKey clone in the trash. That is, if my Wii comes back from repair without the pins cut.

    Nice... I've always had a soft spot for Team Xecuter. Wonder what the "extra features" via those dip switches are.

    Damn that's cool! I hope this knocks all the other drive mods out of the water! And that coming from someone who just bought a wii with wiikey installed... I am really digging the whole opensource idea atm...

    Is this chip smaller or bigger than the Wiikey? I'd like to see a size comparison.

    This sounds the best chip yet. Makes me regret rushing and getting a wiikey.

    no it doesn't have full import compatibility planned in at this point. Reason for this is: If they had that feature, it would be stated more obvious, not by writing two features that might be interpreted this way.
    I mean... they are praising their "mega fast 20 mhz", so you can be sure they would praise the feature that is currently wanted most in the same manner.
