    New Wii Models Halt Modchip Functionality

    It has been confirmed by Wiinja that new Wii models using the D2B Panasonic chipset fail to run the Wiinja, CycloWiz and WiiKey modchips.

    The modchips do run well in 1st generation Wii consoles, but it seems newer models purchased in late January / early February have been modified.

    Both the CycloWiz and Wiinja teams have confirmed the problem, and are already working on new versions to get around the Panasonic chipset.

    Currently the only way known to check what drive model you have, is to open your Wii and check the following chip on the DVD drives PCB. The version shown below - "GC2-D2B" is the incompatible drive model.

    Okay whats a modchip and why are people so intent on messing with Nintendo's hardware? What benefits does a modchip give and aren't they illegal? Also whats homebrew?

    Modchips in most cases are used to allow the console to boot unlicensed code, basically backup and copied games.

    Homebrew is a term given to a game or piece of software that has been been developed by an individual user or team - independant of any officially licensed development team.

    The legalities of using Modchips vary from Country to Country, but being that their main purpose is to allow consoles to boot and run copied games does put them very much in a grey area. Also i think that some Modchips contain bios code that is copyrighted - im not too sure though.

    At least that's how i understand it.

    Is not worth it! I am gonna stick to the original stuff. It is more fun playing a game which you have choosen and read about.
    getting all the illegal games just makes you a spoiled kid. Who doesn´t know what he want to play......
    Shame on all of you

    Not sure if I will mod or not but you do bring a good point. With PC games I had so many burnt games that I never finished them anymore. This is probably why I stopped playing them. Became too spoiled I guess.

    Doesn't matter anymore. They updated the chips, now the modchip works in those versions.

    L, do you know? Shinigami only eat apples.
