    Wii Mod Chip Chart!!

    I can't take all credit for this, but I found a nice layout of the Wii ModChips out there through a friend (DerBiber). You all probably have seen one Wii Mod Chip Compairesen (Listed Below), but i believe you guys might like this a little better.

    >>>Comparison Chart<<<

    thanks for the reply. I'm going toget it modded by you/your team so its a good thing you replied

    i was reading the site and some people said that the wasabi customer support is really bad (for example they brought out the new chip without providing a update for the first one). is this a major issue I should consider?

    EDITED: Some of the information that was once true is no longer true, in hopes to avoid confusion I've edited it completely.
    Wasabi2 is definitely a top choice to consider, the support team is now communicating with us and so far no bugs.

    Well the unfortunate thing is you can't roll back. If I can get one of the said eject issue drives I can send it in to the d2pro team to analyze and theyll release the solution farily quick, as their support has been very good.

    Lastly we got some wiizards in for testing, they are good but still just beta crap, so will do a proper review once the final arrives to us. We got the wiizard through another installer whom works with us from time to time that got some samples in.
    edit again: we got the final version in and they are solid, we decided to be a distributor for them.

With the d2pro9 the issues are not there if you have a correct clk length or use a clip for that matter. We've done several hundred using the d2pro9 with zero issues.
    It also seems like some places just got bad batches unluckily.

    On the Canadamods website for the presoldered D2Pro9v2 it says they send it out with firmware version 1.3 and is upgradeable to 1.4 with DVD. So either their page is outdated or its intententionally which is seems like a great idea and only people with D2C2 would really need to upgrade.

    Yes it was intentional at that time, but sometimes we just don't get around to make the edits, like right now we are sending out 2.3 and 1.6 firm but our site states a lower firm.


    My opinion on the chart:

    For D2A/D2B/DMS
    1) Wiikey (if pins not cut)
    2) D2PRO9 v1 /Wasabi2/Wiizard (alphabetical)

    For D2C/D2C2
    1) D2PRO9 v2 (simply because of jtag update ability)
    2) Wasabi2/Wiizard (if not taking into account jtag update both these are at the same level as d2pro9)

    For D2E
    1) D2PRO9 v3 (simply because of jtag update ability)
    2) Wasabi2/WiiZard (if not taking into account jtag update both these are at the same level as d2pro9)


    With the d2c/d2c2/d2e it terms of solidity wasabi2/wiizard are less prone to issues when cross using them with chipsets, but if the right d2pro9 version is used for each chipset it works very solid as well, but you dont want to use a d2pro9 v3 in a d2c/d2c2 at the current time as it may not work, but it is being fixed (solution is already there).

    Thanks Spyman, that is very helpful. Also I have read in some threads that for a certain combination of Wii Drive type using either D2Pro9v2/v3 or Wasabi2/3 requires a single wire soldered so I would suggest that, for each option you have listed, you also add whether the option is available as "Totally Solderless" or "Partially Solderless - 1 wire solder required"

    Thanks again for the info.
