    I am going CRAZY! What am I going to do? I sent in my Wii to get it modded (from a trusted source of course) and I miss it incredibly. Y'all will not realize what it's like without Wii for a week or two until you experience the same thing. Blugh. Did anyone else have to go through this painful withdraw?

    I got the CycloWiz. There is no reason to get the WiiNja! It's not upgradeable whatsoever! How silly!

    Definitely. Will do. I overnighted the Wii about a week or so ago but the CycloWizzes are out of stock for a few days. I'm having it overnight back to me.

    A mod is something to let you play games that dont normally play on your standard system..

    What people dont know is from what I know. Once you "Mod" your white little box.. You will probably lose online capability.. yea.. sucks..

    Thats good in my opinion. All these modchips are pathetic. I hope they destroy your Wii. Maybe next time you'll learn to be happy with what you got originally.

    The modchip that is being implanted for him, "mods" the wii. From then on, it can play backups, which the vanilla Wii wasn't capable of.
    I'm thinking of modding my Wii, too, a Wiikey would be nice. But I'll do it myself, it takes like.. 3 mins without sending it in for weeks

    i agree with masterjedi, im so sick of seeing people modded and emulating their systems, such as the psp, which i got last christmas, people always want to play something different than what they have, its pathetic, i dont exactly know what games you are enabled to play after modding, as i have no particular interest in even removing the cover of my wii, and voiding my warranty like you idiots, but whatever games you are able to play im sure arent worth this crap. you deserve to not play your wii for weeks, maybe you will appreciate it more when you finally can play it.

    I say you wait... If you mess anything up... GL because Nintendo will turn you down.. Plus if you mess your online capability up.. Your also screwed.. Im tired.. so dont mess with your wii's and just wait for games. If you must Mod your box, have fun. Just dont be one of those people who are pissed after nothing works in the future. Laters.

    Of course it will suck for you, you're a DEDICATED GAMER.

    Anyway, sorry to hear the news TexasDude. I experienced the same when I sold my GC before I got the Wii.

    Well if you can afford a mod chip (and a new Wii system if the chip ruins it later), then go for it! That's what I did.

    i would never in my life mod a system which has online captabilities/updates. Its alright with a console like gamecube or n64 because once its done, its done, no firmware upgrades, all games will always work. however you never know getting your wii modded may turn round and bite you from behind. im not against pirate software, i have harddrives with 500+gig of pirate stuff, developers and publishers make enough money anyway so it dosnt really hurt them, however modding a system like the wii is pure stupidity imo.

    Well its def silly to mod your wii with a chip that isn't upgradeable haha. Wiinja. But with CycloWiz, every time Nintendo releases and update that blocks the chip, CycloWiz will come out with an update upgradeable by DVD. That is of course Nintendo even cares to do an update to disable chips. They may not care because so many users will not have a chip at all (for whatever reason).

    hmmm are you sure? I heard the WiiKey is the only chip with upgrade DVD. And it can play Homebrew aswell. Seems to be the best one so far, I think.

    betteryet, the cyclowiz ( v2 ) is impossible to detect. It makes a modification to the drive and then lets it do the rest. You could even take out the chip after you booted your backup and it would still work.
