    Exclamation Best Available Soderless Mod Chip Currently Available. Sorry For Repeat Thread

    Basically I have been out of the loop for a little over a year. Right now I have the original drive key installed in my daughters wii and I'm just wondering what has changed since then. I have been waiting for drive key to release some firmware to "still" play super mario brothers (I know they released another version of the drive key that supports it) but I was just wondering with new games coming out, is there something newer/better out there that you recommend before I buy the newer version of the drive key. I hate to support a company that took soooo long to give support to a product and then when support is available your still required to purchase an additional loader...pffft.

    This is Michael Jackson game will be released at the end of this month and I KNOW she is going to want it so I just want to make sure I have everything I need so she can enjoy it will no problems. Thanks.


    On a side note: Does any know of the best card to get for nintendo DS's? Again, I got my daughter a card like 1 1/2 years ago and I'm out the loop on that as well and Im starting to notice more and more games I put on her micro sd card are now not working and new newer firmware is available for the card she has. I think its like a ssdk or something like that. Thanks.

    Softmodding will do what your DriveKey won't. And at zero cost (other than perhaps a purchase of a 2gb full non-MicroSD SD card). On the DS: I use this one.

    Thanks. Ill look into softmodding. Question is, if I already have a drive key installed. Do I have to revert my wii back to original form (taking the drive key out) before trying to soft mod? What advantages do you have softmodding over installing a better version of a soderless chip?

    Ohhh and yes, Ive installed a akekard for a friend of mine but didnt know if that was the best available at the moment since that one is pretty old as well. With technology these days, something you bought yesterday is considered old tomorrow. LOL.

    No, you can have a hardmod and a softmod on the same Wii. Advantages? Disadvantages? Covered numerous times. A: free, can use USB HD (faster than any modchip or retail disc), excellent guides to follow. D: sometimes you have some upkeep when something new comes out (HackMii/IOS 58, new revision of cIOS). Best thing to do is install Priiloader if you softmod (in the guide, don't worry) as it'll prevent an accidental update of one kind or another.

    We do have a small section on the DS here; the thing is, we have a sister site this question may be more suitable for --- dsihacks.net (might seek to confirm there).
