I did the patch to autoboot. When I did that it only took about 1 second to patch it. Does that sound right? I have no way of telling if it patched or not.
So remove the chip and put it in another Wii. SOunds like something a little more advanced. Is the chip soldered onto the board?
Can you tell me what some of the games are that will run without the chipset being set to autoboo? And do they have to be a raw copy?
