    P.S. What are your opinions of D2E-A9 chips even if you have a D2C chipset

    According to my modder, my Wii has the D2E and he installed the D2pro9 V3 (2.3/1.6) latest firmware, I have a ribbon at the side of one of the USB port which is for connecting to a jtag programmer for rewriting the whole chip if needed, that is my understanding but you better wait for the pro here to confirm this.

    During my research period, D2pro9 v3 (2.3/1.6), Wasabi v3 and Wiikey 2 are the best for D2C/D2E, I chose the D2pro9 because

    1) Support track record
    2) ability to rewrite whole chip if needed
    3) My modder recommended it

    Most of all it works at least for me.

    I don't recommend it. If you want something inexpensive the WiiKey2 carrys a good name, its updatable and works very well.

    Hello all,

    I'm a true n00b regarding Wii.
    I am reading about the modchips, but for me its still not clear which chip would be better then the rest, regardless of the price.
    Can someone point me in the right direction?

    Regards!

    All modchips do the same thing which is to enable you to play backup games, the only difference is whether they are updateable what sorts of issues people have been having

    D2Pro9 and D2Sunv3 can both update the Actel HW via a JTag programmer as well as update the SPI Flash via DVD

    Wasabi, D2Sunv2 (& v1.5 I believe), WiiKey2, Wizard can only update the SPI Flash

    visit the forum section for each chip and read what people are saying. You should also read the following thread for information on modding process

    According to the WiiDrives site:

    * There is a 75% chance the chipset is GC2-D2E.
    * And there is also a 25% chance the chipset is GC2-D2C (v1).
