My nieces wii dvd drive seems broken, or cant read dvdrs/silvers. So I did some search and stumbled upon this site Wii Softmodding for Dummies - Powered by CO.CC which helped me to install the required tools to boot images from a usb drive. I installed everything although the wii is already chipped. I am not sure what modchip it is. When I tried to follow that tutorial I could not check the FW version in the wii since I always get that opera browser page which might indicate missing files. So I assumed that the FW is less than 4 and continued following the tutorial. The WII is working now, and I am able to boot isoz from the usb HDD. But, to be honest with you I would like to fix that problem and be able to browse the WII settings.
Now, I did read that I can use an ubrick DVD or a recent game which might resolve the issue. So any suggestions to what shall I do in order to unbrick my semi-bricked wii? Links to the proper files, or at least actual names and versions would be appreciated...
Thnx in advance,
P.S. The WII is US
did you install bootmii or preloader? If so those programs will indicate your current system ios and system menu version. If so post that info.
