The CycloWiz modchip is the second Nintendo Wii Drivechip to be released to the public. Drivechips work by injecting code into the DVD-ROM telling it that the homebrew/backup disc is a legitmate program which can be run on the Nintendo Wii. Sadly, Drivechips are limited to certain functions and do not allow you to run unsigned Nintendo Wii code thus disabling homebrew developers from utilizing the power of the Nintendo Wii's hardware. Luckily though you can still boot your GameCube homebrew. One must remember that it was one of the first chips to arrive so it only features basic functionality.

The CycloWiz is more popular then the Wiinja because of it's ability to be updated and the fact it's PCB is made to fit right over the solder points for easy installation. Of course you don't have to directly solder it onto the motherboard as you can use wires instead.

Installation Manual

Installing the CycloWiz is a pretty easy process. First you will need to take apart your Nintendo Wii (guide) then solder it on. I

There are basically three options you have when installing the chip. You can solder it using it's basic points for a quick install, but this will leave out two features which are the disable and upgrading feature. If you plan to install the extra wires for both of these features make sure to have two toggle (on/off) switches handy.

Yes, the upgrade is real and is now online in the download section ! We weren't able to complete D2B tests in time to meet the deadline, but a D2B compatible version will follow shortly.

A special version of GCOS was also added thanks to emu_kidid. It allows you to run GC Multi Game discs and thanks to is fully compatible with old Viper format.
