[Request Help] Completely New to Modding
As i am completely new to buying myself a mod chip i am interested in Putting the WiiKey2 into my wii. I want to be able to play games that are available only in japan and this seems the way to go.
I have read many posts and searched the forums yet i am still left with a few questions
1) What needs to be soldered to what? I went to look around at buying it and this site came up asking for a pre soldered chip Modchip Central - Official Distributor of Wiikey, D2Pro, D2Pro9, Wii-clip, R4DS, M3 Real, R4 DS, D2Pro 9, Wiikey2, Wiikey 2, Memor32, DSTT, Acekard, Acekard2, Acekard2 and more!
Is that a legit thing?
2) Will i have to update my Wii a different way because the chip is in, even if all i am doing is playing a few games from japan.
3) What are Iso's and after knowing what im looking for should i worry more about them. ( even searched but all that came up was people wanting to download them ).
4)If it does need work im US East coast VA and if anyone lived nearby i was wondering if there is a way you could help me out :].
I think thats it and i greatly appreciate any help i recieve.
Edit: I have no idea what wii i have, all i know is that i bought it in the first few months of release. Will the Wiikey2 work for it?
is ur Wii console a japnese unit ? bought in Jap ? what serial number ( on the edge lable, ie. LJFxxxxxxxxxx? LJHxxxxxxx ? )
wiikey2 supposed compatible with oldie wii.
[b]if the serial number is LUHxxxxxxx, LUJxxxxxx...etc, u got a USA version console !![b]
edit: oldie wii's can use wiikey (not wiikey2) which is very very cheap and easy installation. unfortunately, not many shops selling it, today.

1) What needs to be soldered ? wiikey2, take this common one for ur wii.
those R4DS, M3 Real, R4 DS, DSTT, Acekard, Acekard2, Acekard2..... are for NDSLite/NDSi handheld gamers. Not for Wii. haha~~
Is that a legit thing? <--- what's in ur mind ? Nintenda has won the lawsuit against R4, kinda......
2) With chip-modded, two different updates need be noticed:
a. the f/w of wii console -- using game disc, or wifi link to update
b. the f/w of mod-chip -- using update or config files in dvd-r
why u prefer to play few, and not all, games from japan ?
3) What're Iso's ? Google with key words, one each " BT, torrents, ISO image file, wii backup disc, winRAR, "
spend ur first 10 hrs visiting the top ten threads in "Recommended FAQ..." section here. wouldn't u ?
Hehe after spending an hour i felt it was enough. Not to be mean but having to spend 10 hours would cost me more in time then it would to just pay for someone to do it all together :P.
Anyways as for the first question that site talks about having the Wiikey2 soldered on. i was wondering what they solder it ontop before you order
and my wii is an american version and probably oldie i will find out tomorrow and post it up here.
I guess i dont need ISOs because i would not be downloading games and there are only a handful of games i am going to buy that are japanese thats why i want to play a few
So when i update i can still use wifi internet and let the console do it itself? That would be awesome.
So i guess its down too me finding my serial
Then finding someone around here that can do it :P
And last but not least the one question about updating 5 lines above this
are u going to buy Jpn "backup copies" ? if yes, the chip-mod would faciliate the disc play in a USA console. otherwise, spend ur 2nd hr reading threads.
yeah~~, updating via wifi is awesome.
doing it with Jpn disc will 'brick/semibrick" ur USA wii. spend ur 3rd hr reading threads for prevention.
so, it's down to u making fun, or making a brick. lol
edit: except a few Jap games, most of them hv been released in english version.
Zero-Gesshoku no Kamen
Fushigi no Dungeon Furai Shiren
Tatsunoko vs Capcom X-generation

Well i have covered how to get it done so im left with this
Your answers confuse me a little billyhome. I am trying to get tatsunoko vs Capcom X-generation REAL version will the wiikii run this. Or the Wiikey2
the REAL version may not run on 3.xU console.
wiikey2 will support 95~99% backups.
are these the confusion ? lol
Alright well by back-up do you mean copy? why not the original version and what is the 3.xu console?
I have a wiikey ver1 and can olny get TatsunokovsCapcom to run via the gamma loader - it is a backup though, not an original - I keep my original copy safe and unplayed
If soldering concerns you you can always get a Wiiclip and fit your chip that way.
wii-clip for WIIKEY,D2CKEY,D2CPRO,ARGON,D2PRO, WASABI and DMS,D2A,D2B,D2C for wii console!
