New Wii units...?

    "Nintendo has altered the hardware components of new Wii units in an attempt to block the use of currently available modchips that enable users to play copied games. The new units are part of a new shipment of Wiis and contain an altered circuit layout that makes modification much more difficult than with the earlier versions of the console."

    How do we identify the new Wii's? It would do no good to order a modchip if we have the newer unit.

    hello

    it says they just altered the circut so you will be able to install the chip but very much harder

    "Sources noted that attempting to modify the newer consoles with the older modchips will most likely lead to damage. However, new generation modchips for the Wii may become available within a month of the newer Wiis hitting the streets."

    According to the official Wiikey site:

    "Wiikey 100% compatible with new Wii motherboard!

    A new revision of the Wii motherboard has appeared in some Asian countries. It does not have all the solder points required to install Wiikey with the quicksolder interface. However, Wiikey can still be installed by using a wired install, or quicksoldr + 1 wire. We are working on the installation diagram and will upload it shortly."

    So I doubt the new altered boards will pose much of a problem.
