According to the Wii tracker -> Nintendo-Scene Wii Serial Tracker
Yes, your console will work with D2Pro9Your Drive Chip is most likely GC2-D2C.
Your Drive Pins are most likely not cut.
My wii serial number is LU32423228 the next number is 6 with a box around it. I wanted to know what is the best solderless modchip for my console to play backups
it will work but make sure you have the chip flashed to 2.3 firmware otherwise you will have to solder the one J wire.
I bought a new wii with the D2E chipset and installed a D2pro9v3 but had to solder in the J wire. Works great.
D2Pro9 V2 / V3 Bundle (D2Pro9 V3 + V4C WiiClip + Triwing Screwdriver)
Now my brother in law wants me to do the same on his 1-2 year old wii (serial no. LU301040866). According to the site to check this serial number it is an 84% chance it is a D2B chipset.
Since I had a D2E and have not flashed it to 2.3 (since you can't do that on D2E chipsets from what I read), I soldered the J wire.
Can I purchase a D2pro9v3 presoldered to the clip like mine was and use it on his older possible D2B wii?
Should I use a cheaper mod chip for an older system. I would rather keep the soldering to 0% but can if I must (I'm an electrical engineer too).
I just want to make it simple like the D2pro9v3 was for my new wii.

If that D2B Wii has the legs cut then u wont be able to use a Wii-Clip..
I would use the WiiKey and install it by dremelling the chip set.. (check out my pics)
or I could use the D2Sun, D2pro9rev3 or the newest D2E A9 mod chip..
On that case I wouldnt have to dremell the Chipset.. anyways.. i guess tell your
brother law his options.. check out my thread for more info on pricing.. and shipping
would be $15. (if you are in the states). I would ship it off the same day i receive it..
The Wii would get modded the day it arrives..
Is there no solderless option available for a D2B Wii with the cut wires? The serial number link said there was also an 84% chance it has the 3 cut wires.
Seem's like the Wii key is the cheapest option for the D2B chipsets if I must solder the wires. Hopefully there is a solution for solderless.
Unfortunately not.. if you have the cut leg version of the D2B then your only option
is going with the wire/solder way.. I coud install either the WiiKey or
the D2E A9 (newest modchip in the market) compatible with all the Wii DVD Drives.
Let me know what your brother law decides.. tell him to call me if he doesnt feel
comfortable in shipping his Wii.. or read my feedbacks, perhaps then he'll feel ok
The console has model number RVL-001(USA), produced for Canada/Mexico/USA.
* There is a 75% chance the chipset is GC2-D2C (v1).
* And there is also a 25% chance the chipset is GC2-D2B with cut pins and missing third pad.
Yeah if you have a D2Cv1 chipset i would go with the D2E A9, D2Sun or D2pro9rev3.
it would be a nine wire install ..it would look like this.. here's the D2Sun.
I got home from my brother in laws house (8 hour drive) for the holiday weekend. I have 2 wii's from him. What I thought was a D2B based on the serial number check was actually a DMS (once opened up and verified by me). My other brother in law wanted me to install a modchip into his wii. His was not as old and it had a D2C.
OK - Can I use the D2pro9v? with a solderless snap on clip with these?
Or is there a cheaper solution less having to solder all the wires - like the wii-key? I read that the wii-key V3 solderless clip works on DMS/D2A/D2B but wont work if the console has the "3 cut pins". Is this only a problem on D2B or how do I tell if the DMS has the "3 cut pins"?
