    The "Best" mod chip is purely down to preference...

    I was torn between the Wiikey & Cyclowiz

    but I'm going to go for the Wiikey... why?

    well because I dont need a switch(or two wires sticking out the back) to update the Wiikey... which you do for the cyclowiz (last I checked)

    So i'm going to go for Mr Wiikey :)

    your best bet is to read up lots and make sure its what you want to do...

    wiikey is your best bet unless you want to drill a hole in your case(you never know) i have also heard a lot of problems with cyclowiz. so your best bet is with wiikey, i would also reccomend looking at the winja.

    Does Nintendo have a history of deliberately attempting to neutralize modchips? I know that Sony and MS do, but I didn't think that Nintendo did.

    They know about it and they are always revising the wii's to make it harder for people to installed chips, plus rumours are saying nintendo has released updates to screw modded wiis etc

    Revising the Wii hardware? Do you have any technical data to support that or is it just rumor? Yes, I know about rumors about Nintendo releasing updates to mess with modded Wiis, but that is just spotty rumor. Probably from social misfits looking for attention.

    Revised hardware, yes thats true. search news.google.com about it, you will also see nintendo has said something about the chips somewhere on their site. sorry i can't provide links, i'm on my wii

    Nintendo has changed the layout of their mobo to prevent modchips. But from what I have heard, wire installs are still possible. These new Wiis are only available in Japan.

    I own the Wiikey and it works great. I'll recommend it because it can be configured or updated via a DVD so its future-proof.

    well when Nintendo come and replace my current wii with a new one then I'm sure ill have difficulty modding it...

    but as it is the one thats easily moddable it will be modded and I will check out GC homebrew and see what other cool stuff they can do with modchips...
