    The best chip that I've heard in the next few weeks is the WiiP.

    But for now it's the Wiikey. BUT if you want then you can make your own chip for free aka. the Wiifree.

    Basic soldering skills and a steady hand are needed to install any chip. Make sure to sharpen the tip of your iron.

    You will be able to play all Wii games of your region with the Wiikey. There is some compatability with other regions as well, but I advise to just stick with your own.

    There is a stealth mode for some chips- just read up on them.

    The Wiikey was the first chip I ever installed and it was easy. I practiced beforehand with old electronics, though.

    What are the differences between the Wiikey and the CycloWiz as
    in pros and cons,what materials did you use to install your modchip
    (ex.triwing screwdriver,wire)
    Also can the wiikey play dvd movies?
    Is the wiiD any good?



    thank you

    head honcho?

    hehe I wish

    I like (The head honcho) better then (Psycho Ninja Diehard WiiD Fanboy) maybe I will change my signature.

    Do I come off as acting like the head honcho?

    The only reason I choose WiiD over Wiikey is all the talk about how the Wiikey does not have audio support for streaming audio on game Cube games. I have allot of Game Cube Games and want to be able to play them.

    Plus it has a disable option where Wiikey doesn't. As of now that option is not needed but as I stated before I would rather have that option available if there ever comes a time that it will be needed.

    Other then that the Wiikey and WiiD pretty much do the same. As most other Modchips as well. It is really just a preference on what you like best.

    WHOA.

    After looking over the chart I posted, the Wiip is really top of the line. I'm gonna order that now lol.

    I suggest everyone to do the same.

    Oh yeah, I'll wait for the new version.

    I personally use Verbatim DVD+R 8X with VideoGard and burn at 4X with ImgBurn. All of my Wii games work perfectly. Just get the best media (Verbatim, Taiyo Yuden) and you'll be fine.

    Nope, in a couple of weeks.

    Wait for the version 2.

    Wow, you have a lot of questions lol.

    VideoGard is protection that provides over 40 times more scratch resistance than standard media.

    Both work. Some people's DVD burners just support -R and not +R, mine is the other way around.

    Team Xecuter is the one you want.

    haven't had experience with the WiiP yet, So I can't tell ya.

    Just wait for the Team Xecuter WiiP v. 2. I am :).

    I might get it and replace my WiiD with it. Depends on what it offers and how the reviews go after it has been released. But it sounds like a promising Modchip.
