ModChip users beware. Nintendo has taken steps to limit and or prevent the use of chips in the latest revisions of the Wii Systems. Of course, this will only slow things down for a while.

Some providers of Wii modification services in Taiwan think Nintendo could adopt BGA (ball grid array) IC packaging to prolong the time needed by hackers to develop new modchips to at least four months. The longer waiting time would likely reduce the willingness of some users to modify the consoles, the sources noted.
