    Anybody can reciver a fully bricked Kor WII?

    I've been a member here at wiihacks for years and I have been enjoying my Wii just fine. Now an old friend with an old Kor wii ask me if I can recover or restore his Wii on its 003, I said hell yes! (Thinking of getting back here at following the "softmod any wii" once again).

    So now I have his Wii with me, and wth, i hasn't any priiloader nothing nada.... No matter how many times I unplug press the reset before power and etc. I even thought I got rusty so I plugged my Wii back in and check if I got the priiloader working and it works just fine with my Wii.

    But his Kor Wii unfortunately doesn't have one.

    I read some threads here about disc swap on ssbb-PAL. Seriously? Who uses optical on old Wiis today?

    Does that mean my friend has a new white oversized paperweight?


    Many Thanks!

    Hi nightstah, good to see you! I'll read the link. thanks!

    P. S.:

    I read the thread. and all I can say is: Oh crap, I gotta get myself updated to this unbricking thing. Secondly, DL Blank DVD's are hard to find in here in the Philippines. But Let me see what I can do.

    Been a while, I am unable to find a Korean game here in the Philippines. Can I get one from the internet and burn?

    Wiihacks does not condone piracy, so you must buy an original game. Sorry.

    While I'd normally fully agree with that statement, this guy isn't looking to pirate games for the purposes of entertainment --- quite the contrary, limited to no availability in his area for a specific region and title to fix a serious brick is quite another thing (from piracy) in terms of intent or purpose.

    I thought the whole thing about not talking about downloads was to avoid any N lawsuits concerning stimulation to commit felony or whatever, but I stand corrected.

    Thank you.

    It's not that you stand corrected, and I do agree with what you've been saying. But I also think if a user who's aware of Error #04 from Korean-into-US region changed Wii brick from updating to 4.3U --- very difficult to fix. This user is being forthright in saying he's in the Philippines and getting his hands on a specific title and region in his part of the world ain't gonna happen.

    If this user said "hey, I want to play this game and have no intentions of buying it" for entertainment value, this thread would have long been closed. Your posts are always appreciated and there's no scolding from us to you for mentioning it here.

    If I were you, I would have already done some questionable things...

    Edit: I've just checked eBay for Korean games and there seems to be plenty of them whose original owners are willing to ship internationally. The cheapest I'm seeing is a Paper Mario for US$23 + US$6 shipping. Still much cheaper than a new Wii (especially if the Philippines are anything like Brazil, pricewise)!

    No, Wikipedia says Brazil had the highest launch price for the Wii.
