Chiip Info

Chiip was the first DIY (do-it-yourself) modchip. Chiip is designed by Cadex (chiip(at)trashmail(dot)net) at and is NOT open-source. It is however considered "delayed source" and the source will be released sometime after the binary release going to be released as open source under GPL. Chiip was originally based on the Cyclowiz modchip. It has since become a completely independent modchip.
