WODE mod solution for Wii looks pretty impressive

Posted on Monday, September 21 2009 @ 19:08:24 CEST by

Modders have created a new mod for the Wii that goes a lot further than traditional mod chips. The WODE (Wii Optical Drive Emulator) enables you to play ISOs directly from USB storage devices and is relatively easy to install. No soldering is required, WODE attaches to the Wii drive cable and is housed in a vertical stand for your Wii that includes a LCD display and joystick.
WODE will include a Flatmod type mainboard that attaches (solderless) to the Wii drive cable similar to other available chips. It also comes with it's own vertical stand that harnesses a slave board with built-in LCD, USB, and SD slot. The SD card is used to house the powerful Linux-based WODE software.

Complete Solder free install solution

Easy to use GUI - LCD & Joystick - NO homebrew software required (no any update of console SO can block this device )
