    The final one is getting a a CIOS, but thats a full mod.

    Personally I think a mod free Wii, kept updated, is a tried and tested solution.
    And see my Wii had 3.1 on it, and was just gonna upgrade to 4.2 since that was what my buddy's Wii was modded on. But unfortunately I didn't know Nintendo released 4.3 a few days earlier!

    I downgraded and everything, and I'm on 4.1 now, but I can't even get CFG Loader to load without freezing randomly. That's why I'll get the WODE, cause I chatted with some of the guys on IRC, and didn't seem to know what to do either. But again I appreciate the help from the both of you!

    But is there a chip out there that can basically do the same thing as the WODE? Just doesn't have the stand? I mean when it said you could play GameCube iso's off the hdd, that got my attention. Like Wasabi and them, do they have something to compare with WODE, or is WODE just the thing to get?

    The other chips are just that chips and do not do what the WODE can do at present and will be able to do in the very near future. The thing you need to keep in mind is that the WODE is a mini-PC. It has its own CPU and DDR memory built in running a Linux kernal. So unlike the 'chips' that you refer to WODE is programable and quite feature rich for other things beside just being able to play Wii or Game Cube games. Currently the networking GUI is having the final bugs sorted and then both WiFi and LAN type networking will be a breeze with the WODE. That will basically take away any need for a HDD to be connected.

    If you are still worried about the base just mod your Wii and WODE. I took the Wii DVD drive out of one of my systems and put the whole WODE inside my Wii.

    You are limited by what you can think off, nothing more and nothing less.

    Enjoy.

    Never realized that it had its own RAM and stuff like that. And when they release that dongle for the wireless stuff, wouldn't u think that the game would lag, streaming from a PC? I personally think a hard drive is good enough.

    Based on my own testing with the Wifi I have had no game play lag at all.

    There are other applications that the Wifi complements not just game play. WODE becomes a media centre able to stream video and so on.

    I agree with you by the way, a USB hard drive is good enough for me too.

    So people are able to stream games wirelessly already, and they aren't experiencing lag? That actually sounds pretty cool. Too bad I don't have the money yet for the WODE... I gotta sell some crap on eBay.

    You can lay the Wii along side it, but this makes it more susceptible to damage.
    If you don't mind viewing the LCD on its side just lay the standard installation on its side.
    hi john,

    I don't have a WODE yet, but I am seriously considering one...as I got the money to buy one....but I'd like to get a lil more info from someone who has the info.

    1) I really don't want to use the base and LCD screen...do I have to hook the base and screen up to my wii? After all, I read you can now navigate the menu on the LCD screen on the TV screen...wouldn't this render the LCD screen completely useless now? As for as what I'd like to do, I would just navigate everything from my seat using the menu on the TV screen...is this possible and not even have the base and lcd screen hooked up to me wii at all?

    2) The WODE bypass chip, do I have to hook it back up to the wii internal optical drive and power? Can I not hook the WODE bypass chip back to the wii internal optical drive and power...and instead I am wanting to install an internal 2.5" external HDD and place it inside of my wii to play gamecube back ups from HDD. Is this a possibility and will it work?

    3) Will the WODE recognize a 1 TB HDD? I am wanting to put a 2.5" external HDD inside of the wii..or I might use 2.5" internal HDD...But my question is will the WODE recognize a 1 TB HDD???

    4) Does the SD card slot on the base have to be utilized for the OS of the WODE? Is it possible to use the SD card reader built in the wii for this effort?

    Many Thanks, KL

    Wode

    1) No..Base is needed for many other functions other than just game selection
    2) if you want internal hdd, then get the sundriver
    3) both the wode and sundriver recognizes most hdds over 1tb hdd
    4) Yes, No
