    The thing i should notice before ordering a modchip?

    I'm going to order a modchip. But as i'm beginner with this, i have no clue where to start. Which mod-chip should i order and where can i see my Wii's firmwares and thigs such like that. And is there other things that i should also check before ordering the chip?

    it doesn't matter what wii firmware u have. Get the d2sun v3(solderless), it worked for me, it will work for u. Just find the chipset of ur wii at Wii Drive Chip Database. Just put ur wii serial number in there. It is on the bottom site of ur wii on a white sticker.

    you cant go wrong, but its the chip set that matters, they all do about the same thing, some people get good chips others get bad, and some are just decent

    i had a d2pro that bricked 7 wiis the moment i installed it doesnt, mean D2pro isnt for you, tell us what you have and then we will go from there, but i recomend wasabi

    I have a D2C2 drive as well and I bought a Wasabi V3. Works flawlessly and never had a problem with it. It's super stable so you shouldn't have any issues with that one.
    Hail to the king, baby!

    D2C2-equipped Wii + Wasabi V3 = I love Nintendo! (and big boobs)

    our recommendation is
    D2PRO9 V3 2.3/1.6 (only this firmware version will work properly)
    or
    Wasabi V3 (update to 1.4 firmware via dvd if you choose this)
