    fake signed discs won't work unless you have a modchip or cioscorp, take it you didn't make a nand backup with bootmii? looks like you are going to have to get a chip...

    ask in the chip section though i think those drivekey ones are a snap to fit and work well....

    if you don't have access to preloader or bootmii on boot2, you are basically in trouble, but you can fix it its just gonna cost you some money...

    i heard about this "saveMii dongle" I'd rather use that than a mod chip.
    do you think it'll work?

    no it won't...not on it's own, it will with a modchip! lol - what you have to do is get your wii into recovery mode with a gc controller (which does exactly what a savemii dongle does) then autoboot a wad manager disc with a modchip and remove bad wad...thats if it works...if you are dishonest you could buy a new wii then put old one back in its box and take it back cos it doesn't work.

    thanks for all your help.
    but how much would it cost to send it to nintendo?
    I don't want to not install the modchip properly and risk ruining the wii.
    im not to bothered about having homebrew wiped.
