Choosing the Right ModChip for your Version of Nintendo Wii

Modifying your Nintendo Wii to load CDs with a different regional code, backup CDs copied from originals, and third-party programmed homebrew, you need to either physically put in a wii modchip into your consoles drive or run a sofmod through a software hacking program.  Sofmod through wii hacking (through twilight hack) can also be used in modding your console through SD cards that are loaded in your console.  Wii hacking programs like the twilight hack and the homebrew channel are safe ways for wii mod.  The twilight hack uses a pre-saved game to cause a system crash to enable the wii hack to run a loader that will allow any application to run on your console.  The homebrew channel is a sofmod channel that can be downloaded and installed to load and run homebrew applications.
