Wiiva! It will be joining the scene with the likes of CycloWiz, WiiKey, WiiD, Wiinja and Open Source modchips (http://www.dcemu.co.uk/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=51085) but will include a few perks such as pre-tinned wires. The chip is being developed by the homebrew Xbox hackers who created the popular dashboard replacement.

We are proud to announce our newest project: Wiiva. Yes, we are now making our first modchip, and it is for the Nintendo Wii! It has all of the great features you would expect from a chip from us, as well as a few more! Features include, but are not limited to:

- Support for all regions
- Upgradeable via DVD
- Direct boot of Wii and GC disks
- Stealth mode
- And a few perks that many other "penny pinching" chip makers don't feel they need to include such as Pre-tinned wires (no more running to the electronics store after buying your chip to get wire) and double sided tape!

Sure, they aren't super flashy, but when you sit down to install your chip and have everything you need right there, you'll be glad you made this choice.
