    Or you could get a WODE or Sundriver: Welcome to Modchip Depot - Modchip-Depot.com
    I don't fell like softmoding, it looks way too complicated.

    Installing a chip looks easier, you install it, configure the menu, update the chip and that's it, everything should work.

    Your problem is that even with a chip you cannot load from DVD. So you either use the wiikey fusion and boot from SD card (limited size). Or you use the WODE or Sundriver and load from a HDD (expensive and requires opening your wii, which is more scary than softmodding)

    Softmodding is not hard as long as you read carefully and follow carefully. A softmodded wii will be able to boot games from USB HDD.

    I would say that installing modchip is much more difficult then softmoding especially if you don't have any experience with electronics.

    I checked it out and the WODE is definitely a better idea. I already have a 500GB external hard drive and i won't have to buy DVD

    Thanks
