    Which is the better Modchip, WiiKey or Wiinja?

    Hello. I am very new to the Wii modding and i only brought my Wii 5 days ago and know i like to get it modded. I was going to send it off to fit a mod professionally as i am not oo sure on soldering even though it does look easy.

    Now my question i have, I found a guy willing to fit a chip of my choice and i after reading for a couple of days on forums it was found the WiiKey is the most popular of them all, however ther have been some angry people who do have this chip and they are complaining there has been no update as of yet and the audio fix doesnt work. Many people over at PSX-SCENE say to get the Wiinija Deluxe since its the same as the WiiKey since you can upgrade via DVD plus the audio fix does work.

    The guy kept saying the WiiKey is the best but i am not so sure this is true as so many people are complaining about this chip, i really don't know what to believe. Can any of you guy help me out?

    Hey
    Im going to get my wii modded next week
    Wiinija or wiinija delux?
    Lots of modders are pushing the wiikey, if you do get one you might want to make sure its real and not a clone, the wiikey looks liek it has the most potential but if youre backing up gamecube games it has a audio streaming issue other that they'll fix in an update.

    and heres a few sites you might want to look at:
    http://www.wii-modchips.com/compare.htm

    Compares some wii mod chips- wiikey, wiinija delux, and cyclowiz, eetc.

    Heres the wiinija review you might want to look at it (pros, cons)
    http://www.wii-modchips.com/wiinja.htm

    The wiikey one
    http://www.wii-modchips.com/wiikey.htm

    And you might want to consiider the cyclowiz (good support, disable function, recent update)
    http://www.wii-modchips.com/cyclowiz.htm

    Theres all updatable so thats good
    I'd personally go with the wiikey, but its up to your personal opinion and what youre going to use the modchip for (imports, backups, gamecube, homebrewing, etc.)

    It is the wiikey....... space is too limited on the wiinja for much future development

    It can be updated? according to http://www.wii-modchips.com/wiinja.htm:
    Shortcomings:
    - Does not region patch to play imported games
    - For what it is it is a bit expensive
    - Not upgradable so no new features can be added

    ALOT and i mean ALOT! of these modchip bios are not up to date. they dont talk about the newest modchips. Your best bet is to go to online modchip stores and compare the descriptions of the modchips they sell.
    you'll even reallize the modchips reviewed on these sites arent even available any more or are at the next version with improvements
