    I was thinking about purchasing a Wiikey for my Wii. I was reading around the forum and had a couple questions. 1st off is the Wiikey a good mod chip or should i go w/ the cyclowiz or wiid? Im not trying to start a war i just want the better of the chips. I am basicaly looking to backup my games (American version) and be able to play both GC and WII games. Another question I have is that I have been reading it has "stealth mode" how in the heck do they know that? Nintendo hasnt even came out w/ any updates that detect these chips yet. Another thing is how does one make a chip stealth?

    Also what tools should I use. I have a 15-30W soldering iron w/ some solder. Will that do the trick?

    Here is the website I was looking at.

    Is that a good place to buy them or does anyone know of a better site?

    Also people are saying get the lg-8164b... this is only a DVD-ROM... when makeing a backup of a game each dvd burner reads media slightly different. I used to make backups of Secure rom4+ games and it was a bit difficult until i got my Plex Pre. So whats the deal? What burner do I need or you know that works flawlessly atm.

    Thanks in advance.

    Alright the LG works for dumping the img so what would you recommend for burning
    Also what is this freeloader? I was looking at that. Is it as simple as putting in a cd into the wii b4 the backup? I know a buddy of mine got something like this for his ps2 and there was a boot cd then some slider shit he had to do that was touchy and almost impossible.

    I use a Lite-ON burner. So pretty much any burner will get the job done.

    As far as I know there is no swap method that is compatible with the Wii. So freeloader will not work. You will need a Modchip.

    It is due to Modchips that have region free capability's and playing an out of region game on their system without having the latest update.

    Example: NTSC game disc playing on a PAL system.

    If you do not have your PAL Wii system updated and put in the NTSC Super Paper Mario game (it has system update on the game disc) it will check to see what system version is on your Wii. If the system is not up to date then the game disc will update your system with the new firmware.

    The hardware has region locks on them and can not be used with other region firmware this bricking the PAL system because it was updated with NTSC firmware.

    To avoid this problem make sure your system is updated regularly before playing newer game titles. This will avoid the game disc updating your system with the wrong region system update.

    Tinning is adding solder to the contact points you will be soldering to on the motherboard.

    Plus adding solder to the wires before making the soldering joint.

    It is easier to make a good soldering joint when tinning both the contact points and wire.

    This was on the Wiid website. Does this function actualy work for u?

    Complete disable :
    ---------------------------

    Wiid automatically turns itself off when an original disc is inserted.
    If for any reason you want to completely disable the chip use the following procedure.
    Note : wire D needs to be soldered for the disable procedure to work!

    - Press and hold the RESET button on your wii.
    - Turn on the Wii by pressing the power button either on the Wii console or on the Wii remote while keeping the RESET button pressed.
    - Wait 3 seconds and release the RESET button.

    Wiid is now completely disabled.
    Turn your Wii OFF and ON again to restore normal chip functionality.

    and for the record i commend you on actually using the search feature to actually dig up this old thread. So many newbies refuse to do so.
