http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mod_chip


A Mod. Chip, an abbreviation of 'Modification MicroChip', is a device used to circumvent the digital rights management of many popular game consoles, including those made by Microsoft (Xbox series), Sony (PlayStation series), and Nintendo (GameCube, Wii) for the purposes of playing backup, imported, pirated, or homebrew games and/or applications. They are used mostly on systems that are CD/DVD-based due to the availability and low cost of blank media such as CD-Rs and DVD+/-Rs.

Almost all modern console gaming systems have hardware-based schemes which ensure that only officially sanctioned games may be used with the system and implement regional lockout similar to the scheme used in DVD movies. The specific technical nature of these DRM systems varies by system, and may include cryptographic signing (Xbox), intentionally unreadable sectors (PlayStation, Sega Saturn), custom optical media (GameCube, Dreamcast), or some combination thereof. Modchips are available also for some DVD players, to defeat region code enforcement and user operation prohibitions.

Modchips typically require some level of technical ability to install. Most commonly, modchips must be soldered on to a console's motherboard, although there are no-solder install kits (which instead rely on the precise positioning of electrical contacts within the case) which work with some revisions of the PlayStation 2 and Xbox hardware.

which modchip did you go with for the wii? I've been looking at them for a little while now. I've done an xbox before so i'm not completely ignorant on the matter, just wondering which one you went with and why? Also, how easy was the install? Can you enable/disable it?

I can't remember the name of the one I was going to order and can't look it up while I'm at the office.

I used the Cycowiz(sp). The install was easy just the points are small. Took me two tries, because i let someone else solder cuz i didn't trust myself. I removed the solder and then i did it, and it worked. Took about 20 minutes. I have to hookup the wires for the dvd upgrade, but other than that, its good.

Does it effect you using the 'net with it? I maybe interested in modding my Wii. You DL Wii games from the 'net, or do you just rent them and copy them onto the hard drive?

Nope. It runs "onthefly" when you put a game in, so it doens't run when you run like everyone votes or something else.

Never heard of that chip, i was looking at the Wiikey but haven't got around to it yet. How "small " we talking? Any harder that the eprom solder points on the ps2?
And since it hasn't been asked, a price on the chip?
