Open Source / DIY Wii Modchip

TCNISO has announced their plans to release an open source / open architecture Wii Modchip. The chip, among other things, will allow you to unlock Gamecube Homebrew on your Wii.

The Wiip is going to be available for a mere $20 retail (and that includes shipping!) and will appear in their online shop around 2/27/07.

Also, the schematics, code, and software will be available so you can make one yourself for less than $10!

From their site:

"This mod works by utilizing a cheap and simple microcontroller that communicates with the serial port of the Wii's hybrid DVD drive and overrides certain parts of the media's data stream.

The most important part of this project, is that it is open source! In addition to releasing the Wiip chip, on this page you will soon be able to download the PCB schematics, Wiip firmware and documentation! We hope by creating this project, other users will make modifications to our code for newer updates in the future (if needed)."

This section is dedicated to the Wiip modification project that was developed by TCNISO.

Wiip is a hardware mod for the Wii system that allows you to boot backup discs. This mod works by utilizing a cheap and simple microcontroller that communicates with the serial port of the Wii's hybrid DVD drive and overrides certain parts of the media's data stream. Allowing you to do all sorts of wonderful things (like boot backup discs).

The most important part of this project, is that it is open source! In addition to releasing the Wiip chip, on this page you will soon be able to download the PCB schematics, Wiip firmware and documentation! We hope by creating this project, other users will make modifications to our code for newer updates in the future (if needed).

The current features of Wiip are:

  • Actually upgradeable! Device is bundled with an easy to use programming cable.

20 MHz AVR microcontroller with 2KB of EEPROM (SMD type)

Customizable (via open source code)

Boots Wii games (DVD+R / DVD-R media)

Boots GC games and homebrew

AudioFix (naturally)

On board DIP switch (enable/disable mod, enable/disable stealth)

Works on DMS / D2A chipsets (sorry, we haven't worked on D2B yet)

The Wiip is going to be available for a mere $20 retail (and that includes shipping!) and will appear shortly in our online shop. Or the schematics, code, and software will be available so you can make one for less than $10! How is that for freedom?

Estimated shipping date 2/27/2007

as i understand alot of the development that surrounds the mod scene is open

it's a very effective development model

in an open development model you wouldn't have retards changing passwords to a lower case version of the same password that was cracked to allow mods on the game cube (see the youtube video that i mentioned in a previous post)

i guess that due to the ineffective work of the people at Nintendo we can mod wiis now, so i guess we can be grateful
