    Don't Buy Mod-Chips.

    They are illegal, and damage your Wii.

    the wiiD is a very good chip to get. you can check it out here

    hxxp://www.modchipstore.com/Wiid-Nintendo-Wii-modchip-mod-chip-16437.html

    also they can install the chip for you, click the link to read about it

    but also, its illegal to install these chips and it will void your warranty. Nintendo is capable of installing new firmware through new games released so you should think about it b4 you do anything

    wiikey imo is the premier and the most requested chip by over 25 to 1 over the cyclowiz and over 75 to 1 over the others conbined.... according to our stats.

    hope that makes your decision easier.

    also where r u located?

    Yes. They work in stealth mode anyway. As Modderman said its the Wiikey that seems to be just running away with it, avoid clones though.

    On a sidenote I dont think its illegal to fit a modchip, yes they can allow illegal acts to be carried out but just having one fitted isnt illegal I dont think. Also why are people so anti-modchip, this is wiihacks.com after all...

    You do not have the facts correct ..it is perfectly legal to install and use these modchips in canada and usa. The modchip can be used to enable the user to play backups of their originals that are stored away safely.. ( so fido won't eat them),
    homebrew, MFE audio/video, game saves, load homebrew from sd thru gecko adaptor,and a lot more as new features are developed for them.

    of course it's up to the end user...in which way they wish to use it capabilities... if you wish to be legal you are required to "own" an original of the backup you download or rip. ....same as a movie,music, etc.

    I really don't understand what the statement means exactly.... It's expected that dvd updated will be normal for all wii units not just for the modified ones.
    so it won't make any difference...if you are using a modchip that is basically runs in stealth mode


    The Wiid seems to be a good chip...I also have them...however they are overpriced for what they do atm.....we will see what happens in the future.
    There are chips that do the same and are proven to be rock solid and stable for quite a bit less $$$....time will tell as always...
