    Taking the plunge, need help deciding the modchip?

    Hi,
    I've had the wii for 2 - 3 months now (D2C or D2C2, yet to check) and i have finally decided to take the plunge and buy a modchip. I've been around the scene for 6 months now so i would'nt need the basics but I am having a hard time choosing between the D2Pro9 v3 with clip, the D2Sun v3 and the Wasabi.

    My only problem is that i need to go solderless since i dont have much experience with soldering. I am confident that i can open up the wii and clip it on though

    I've seen too many people on the forums cribbing about issues with D2Pro9 although this was at one point of time considered the best chip until the inching/ eject issues came up, but then again D2Pro9 has shown awesome support in terms of fixes.

    D2Sun is new and looks promising, and i think it comes with the USB programmer by default, wasabi i have no idea about.

    Can someone direct me to which one should suit me?

    Try the solderless Wasabi 2 or the D2Sun if you are on a budget. Both good chips less the problems.

    Hi Spyman, thanks for the reply.

    Wish i could buy one from your co. Canadamods but i live in India.

    A few questions for you, I have found a local modder here and he claims to have the D2Pro9.

    Since i have a D2C / D2C2 chip, would it matter if the chip is v2 or v3 and how can i check this?
    How can i make out the chip is not a fake (in India, a lot of clones are used)
    Would i need to check if its 2.3/1.6 and how do i do this?

    My guess would be that he has a v2, would it be ok if he chips my console with a v2 and 2.3/1.6 combo?

    Regards,
    Rahul

    hi Rahul,
    The v2 would work fine for d2c2/d2c, just make sure he updates the firmware to 2.3/1.6
    You can confirm the firmware by running the config disc from d2pro : Home
    it should let you know the firmware on the chip.
    make sure it looks like the chip on d2pro : Home and nothing else. If getting a wasabi you also have to be careful as there are chips that look very different but also referred to as wasabi. wasabis site is Wasabi Wii Modchip - Compatible with DMS, D2A, D2B, D2C, D2C2, D2E - Upgradable from DVD - Simply the best so you know what it should look like.
    both are good options to go with.
