    Which modchip for a D2E Drive.

    Hello guys , ive been taking ages reading the modchip identification thread , watching youtube videos and seeing the compatibility list , before i order the wasabi dx ,want to ask it plays gamecube backups ? My Wii is softmodded on 4.3U and works well but i wont be buying the wasabi/other modchip for gamecube :P The reason im buying it because it helps me unbrick my wii.Ive also looked into other modchips and came across Sunkey lite 2 (2010 series) and it reads here plays gamecube backups not sure about recovery mode.Also , i saw Wasabi Zero but to install it i have to remove the black glue (epoxy) which may be risky and could pernmanently damage my wii :s


    So which modchip do you guys recommend me ?

    If you followed the Guide: Softmod ANY Wii, your system ios are dip patched. This means that you can load recovery disc without a modchip.

    I have a wasabi dx, afaik it works on all dvd drives that are compatible with modchips. It plays gc games, but has the sound issues. It plays wii games, but only at 3x, but 3x is what all the newer drives will get. If your drive supports it you can install it as a wasabi zero with 6x speeds.

    If your only looking to fix a bricked wii, ensure you have followed the guide, and installed the patched 4.1 system menu, and priiloader, bootmii (with nand backup) and you will never need a chip.

    With the dip patch system ios you can load a recovery disc set to run on the system ios without a modchip. These dip patched system ios have been standard to the softmod guides here for quite some time, modmii also will install dip patched system ios. So you should ensure that you have the dip patched system ios. If you put a backup disc in the wii and you see the banner at the system menu disc channel, you have the dip patch. You don't need a modchip for recovery if you plan ahead. If you are already bricked, that is different.

    Okay , thanks mate

    How can i get the dip patch thing ?

    Also , im getting the chip for gamecube backups since my gamecubes are getting scratchy :s and i know i can do it with softmod through SD card , but the price of an SD which can takes all my gamecube discs (28 discs) their like 40+ GB and it is the price of a modchip LOL SD card's are damn pricy these days and blank DVD discs are like 0.50c each


    i wish i have my gamecube again :/ (My young brother threw it from the window)

    SCREW YOU NINTENDO !!! WHY DID U MAKE THAT HOLDING THING AT THE BACK!!



    also , i own the game : Sonic Adventure Battle which was my favourite game at that time , playing it like every day 24 hours until it got scratched , 1 week before ive used the backing up method from the disc (DML) and it goes to 43% and lags , left it for like a whole day and just gives a 224mb file and it doesen't work :/ since i own the game , iam allowed to download it ? or its just piracy :S ?

    The dip patched system ios are found in the modpack of the Softmod ANY Wii guide, cios9, 11, 20, 30, 36, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 are dip patched ios. You should just ensure you have a nand backup and complete all of chapter 2.
