Wiinja modchip enables Wii / GameCube backups to function

Posted by Xavier Ashe on January 28, 2007

We've seen plenty of Wii hacks since its November release, and we've even seen a completely uninspiring “hack” to run backup discs, but this time, we're thinking it's for real. The Wiinja modchip is on the loose, and apparently it requires soldering to the Wii innards in order to function, but it purportedly allows for Wii and GameCube
backups to be played back on the console. Unfortunately, there's not a
whole lot of information beyond that, and there's just a single photo
to instruct forthcoming owners how to correctly attach it, but if
there's one thing that helps its case, it's the video. So go on, click
on through for the YouTube demonstration, and start saving up those €40
($52) it'll run you when this hits “commercialization.”
