Thread: Wii Drive Type and Modchip Compatibility Guide

  1. #1

    Wii Drive Type and Modchip Compatibility Guide

    This guide will hopefully help some of u who want to find out which version wii they have without opening their wii. Please correct me if i am wrong becuase i want to make this helpful to everybody. And can guys make it a sticky?
    September 2006 to July 2007 have d2a/dms/and d2b. The best modchips for u guys in my opinion would either be the wiikey, wasabi 1, wasabi 2, or any of the d2pro9 series.
    August 2007 to start of May 2008 all have a d2c v1 chipsets. The modchips that i would look at for this would be d2ckey/pro, wasabi 1, wasabi 2, any of the d2pro9 series, argon, d2lite, wiitop, and if u want then look into the d2sun.
    May and June 2008 bought wiis all have d2c2 chipsets which i would get the d2sun v1 or v2, any of the d2pro9 series, and the wasabi 2.
    July 2008 and onwards are d2e chipsets which need d2pro9 v2 or v3, wasabi 2 and thats all so far. In the future there could be different types of chipsets. That is why i am asking to make this a sticky so it could always be there for newcomers and people who can't figure it out yet. Now the d2e's are all over the world.
    Note: this only goes by date. For more help on finding out ur chipset, go to Nintendo-Scene Wii Serial Tracker and WiiTracker F.A.Q. - Find out what's inside your console from the serial number

    Hope this helps!

    By serial number:

    Lu1 wiis can be d2a,d2b,dms, and through a gamble a d2c.
    LU10613xxxx - Have either D2C.
    But lu1's are not produced anymore.

    lu3 wiis are mostly d2c wiis but lu3000 wiis are d2a/d2b/dms wiis.
    lu31 wiis are all d2c v1 chipsets.
    lu341 and up Lu36# is d2c2.

    lu5 wiis are all d2c uptill lu56 which is d2c2.

    If the tracker sais that u have a gc2 - d2c and have cut pins then u have a d2c2 wii.

    LEH1000 - LEH1231 D2A/DMS/D2B
    LEH1233xxxxx - LEH1347xxxxx Have D2B Chips with Cut pins
    LEH1347xxxxx - LEH1356xxxxx (gamble) Could have D2B with cut pins or could have D2C
    LEH1356xxxxx - [And Higher] Have either D2C, D2C2, or D2E Chips.

    For japanese wiis u would have to go by date for the tracker does not have enough info for jap. wiis.

    LAH1000xxxxx - LAH1014xxxxx D2A/DMS/D2B without cut pins
    LAH1014xxxxx - LAH1016xxxxx (gamble) Could be safe could have cut pins
    LAH1016xxxxx - [And Higher] Have D2B Chips with Cut pins

    It can be useful, but I wouldn't call it the "Ultimate Modchip Guide", but instead call it something like "Wii Drive Type and Modchip Compatibility Guide".

    Change the content and make it become the Ultimate Modchip Guide.

    I'm still so curious to find out what chipset i have without opening my Wii. Not easy to tell, every person say a different thing

    it gives a general idea, but its not accurate still its a good approximation only. I give out similar info in my emails , and on forums like wiinewz in past, so not sure why you had to do a lot of research. Wiitracker is also well known and a good method to check, though it is a bit inaccurate at times as well.
    The best method of checking is serial # cutoff + date of purchase. This kind of information has been posted a lot already though.
    The title should be as jbloggs suggested, it makes more sense, for ultimate modchip guide it isnt really something that can be made where everyone will agree.
