What does this let you do?
#2
The Infectus Argon chip is similar to the D2CKey which has approx 32 solder points, the Argon has 13 Solder points.

the GDR-8164BL is a dvd rom drive for pc that reads wii games
#3
Modchip for backup/copied games plus a little bit more.
#4
Just been having another look for the wiikus argon cant find it for less than £85 so i think you have found the best price for £80 supply and fitted let me know the modder that does for £80 please
#5
Where are you based ?
#6
Hi,

Did you manage to find any drives...?

Regards

I supply and fit D2Ckey to wii's for £70 this includes return special delivery postage, I still choose to use D2CKEY as the argon chip requires a flex cable from the inside of the console to the exterior, you will have to purchase the infectus usb programmer to reprogram the chip with updates, D2CKEY does not require updating!

So you cant update the d2c . So when newer games comes out Iam guessing the chip will not be able to read them. ?

That's right, somewhere down the line the D2CKeys are going to come unstuck. You must have an updateable chip, hence I've waited for the Argon and that's all I'm fitting now, you dont have to have the update cable attached but it saves dismantling the console!
Infectus (the team behind Argon) have a good record in the modding scene, being real quick with support / updates.
PS if anyone's interested I'm on the Wirral and have been chippin for about ten years now!
#10
why that expensive?

can not try wiikey?

there was just £2 each wiikey..
#11
Because Wiikey's no longer work in the consoles that have been around for the last few months & the new chips are a 13-30 wire install requiring great soldering skill and time to fit!
#12
You will be very lucky to find a GDR-8164 from any retailer as the drive is not made anymore ( and because of what this drive can do would say most old stock has been sold ) , i had to purchase a refurbished 8163 , and was lucky to get it . Unfortunately i would have to say fleabay but you will pay way over the top .
#13
The argon is FULLY re-programmable, even to the extent it can be used as a PS2 chip with alternate install / firmware so I'm confident that no matter what happens in the future the Argon has the best chance of being able to overcome it.

As the installs are similar price to the alternative I've definately go for the Argon. The jtag programmer is around £12 delivered btw - not much when you conisider the options it gives.

does any body no were i can get my wii chipped in licolnshire
#15
Hi, I've got two Wasabi chips - these work on all wii including the d2c's....however i need someone in the leicester area to install

apparently these are easier to install with less points compared to other chips out there

I'm looking for a quote under £50 - which i've already been quoted
#16
There's no way you would get that done for under £50, I would usually want £55 per console.
#17
I managed to get someone to do it for me for £50.... I need to start learning how to solder
#18
looking to buying a wii but need a reliable person anybody in the castleford leeds area please
#19
I too would like to find someone in the Huddersfield (West Yorkshire) area.

I will post if needed.
#20
Still fitting argons & Wiikeys if anyones interested. The latest argons are DVD updateable as well as usb.
I'm on the Wirral and will pick up & drop off for a small charge.
:thumbsup:
PM me for details.
#21
I would be interested in any updateable chip if someone is in or around the Coventry area?

Cheers,

Grimmie
