    Hi,

    I have no idea what chip I have, and before I go to the store and buy a Wiikey, I was wondering if I should try a copy of SMG NTSC. Could SMG brick my NTSC Wii?

    (from what I've read, only a PAL SMG could do that)

    Is that assumption correct?

    ok so what i read above, u do not have a modchip installed yet!
    put the serial number in here to try and see which chipset your wii is
    this way u can see if u have d2c or d2b - this determines WHICH modchip u have to buy
    when u say try a copy - do u mean original of smg? if so then as long as ur wii is not modded, only a correct region game will boot up in your wii anyways, a copy will not boot at all and an original which is correct region for your wii will just work

    any game which is incorrect region which contains a higher version update on the disc than your modded wii is at, CAN brick your wii

    I wish there's a store in the US where you can just walk in and buy a chip lol. How are they places over there? Are they shady?

    "Oh yeah mang, with this you can play all games like PS2, Xbawks, everything!!"

    They used to have a place in my local town about 3 years ago but they got shut down. They did repairs ;) , modifications ;) and upgrades ;) but I think they shutdown because of money issues. Their prices were outrageous.
