modding my wii LU57450xxxx
Hi all, great site, etc, etc. I have been reading threads all day and my eyeballs are about to bleed so I made this tread to get confirmation on what I think I need to mod my Wii.
So I bought a Wii on 5/22 that I want to chip.
First I went to the Wii tracker and found out this:
There is a 50% chance that your drive chip is a GC2-D2C
There is a 50% chance that the pins on your drive chip are not cut.
So I am assuming that I have a D2C Mobo and that my pins are not cut.
I found a D2PRO9 v2 with v4C Wii Clip pre-soldered at foundmy.com and Mod Central Ltd. :: Nintendo Wii :: Modchips :: D2Pro9 V3 Bundle (D2Pro9 V3 + V4C WiiClip + Triwing Screwdriver) for 77.00 and 74.95 respectively.
I am not good at soldering so to me the extra 20ish bucks for the chip to be soldered onto the clip are worth it.
As far as I can tell, these bundles will work whether I have a d2c, d2c2, or a d2e mobo.
Can you guys just confirm that this is what I want?
Does one of the sites have faster shipping as time is of the essence? I can return my Wii until 8/20
Thanks in advance
If u are buying the d2pro9 v2 with wii-clip, then get the d2prog because u will need to update a lot. ModCentral has faster shipping than foundmy.
And i am thinking that ur wii is a d2c.
It was made during the transition between d2c and d2c2.
how exactly does the d2prog work? i was under the impression that the D2pro9 v2 is dvd updatable
secondly how easy is the d2prog to use. do i just attach it or is there soldering involved?
the dpro9 is dvd upgradable. the d2prog is for reprogramming the core chip itself incase it is messed up from a dvd update
The d2pro9 is dvd updatable but to get to 2.1 firmware u have to use the d2prog.
