    New to Wii and Chip

    Hello I am looking for help and a kick in the right direction when it comes to modchipping my Wii. I received a Wii for my birthday about a week ago and went online to research chips. I settled on the wasabi DX a few sites said it was a good chip that could be clipped into place. My Wii is running vs 4.2U firmware and right now I am new to everything. I have spent the last 2 hours reading all I could on the wii and modding but I am still stumped (My Ds was a much simpler device) Sp my questions are..
    ~ Should I downgrade my fireware?
    ~ I've read theres different types of roms (PAL an NTSC) will my wii be able to play both and whats the difference
    ~ After I install the chip can I just download backups (of games I already have) and play them
    ~ any other suggestions?
    any help would be wonderful thanks

    How old is the Wii? If it's a year give or take or newer, you won't be able to use the Wasabi. Instead, it'd be the DriveKey Fusion, Sundriver, or WODE.

    Keep in mind the link I gave isn't "guaranteed," but rather an educated guess. That being said, if true you can use pretty much any modchip you want. And you're wrong, it's listed there:

    Wasabi DX - D2A, DMS, D2B, D2C, D2C2, D2E, D3
