    Ca $120 to must for D2pro chip installed.

    There is a guy where I live and he'll install a soderless D2pro chip for $120. Also he'll sell me games for $8.

    Can I download and burn my own or can he put something in the chip only allowing me to use his games ???

    Boy ... That $120 sounds high, but it really depends what type of place this is. The chip runs about $40, most installation services are $70-ish. If your machine is newer and requires epoxy removal ... that $120 then becomes a good deal.

    The only way you're going to save money is to do-it-yourself via solderless WiiClip.


    I can't discuss the selling of backups on this site. Just know that a game rental is about $6 to $9 USD. The DVD-Rom required to read the disc is $50. A Verbatim DVD-R blank (best for Wii) can be had for about $0.25 when purchased by the 100 spindle.



    I honestly think you should do all the work yourself. It'll give you a better understanding of what needs to be done to make your system go. There's more to playing backups than just installing a chip, you really need knowledge of IOS updates and the importance of firmware versions.

    Just a bit more ...

    To disassemble the Wii, you need a special screw driver. It's known as a triwing or trigram. Complete disassemble instructions are linked in my signature.

    To install a WiiKey 2 (comparable item to the other chip mentioned) and WiiClip, it's as easy as taking the unit and popping it onto the "Panasonic" chip.

    Then place a piece of packed / included cardboard over the Clip (to prevent metal to metal contact, and you're done.


    Sounds easy enough ... but if you run into this:


    That $120 is well spent.
