    Infectus problems

    Got a bricked wii here and Infectus 2 to reprogram the nand but having problems with the infectus seeing the nand chip. I have already done one wii with the infectus using the motherboard vias, took me a while to do (dont want to do it that way again lol) so decided to take the nand off the motherboard this time and use a tsop48 socket, i have connected all wires where they should be including a ground wire next to 'v' and a decoupling capacitor and on the opposite side of the nand a 3.3v supply from the wii motherboard to pin 37 and a ground to pin 36 and of course another decoupling capacitor.
    Im using 5v from the motherboard to power the infectus and all my ground connections all go back to the wii.

    The infectus is seen by my pc but i get STATUS UNKNOWN (FBFB) all the time for the nand. wiring has been checked loads of times and they are correct. I have checked to see if i have power to the nand and i do 3.3v so i decided to check the data pins (0-7), i am getting 3.5v on all of them except pin 2 all i get on that is 0.03v. Surely if there is no activity from the infectus to the nand then all data pins should have same voltage ?

    I think my infectus is bad but not sure, any help would be great, thanks

    FBFB I have had a problem with (soldering wires to the nand) was caused by connect 2 having a bad contact. Resoldered that and problem solved.

    Also, did you try to disconnect/connect a couple of times in the programmer ?

    Hmm, just see that my reply never got posted.
    Try to see if your socket makes a good connection on all the legs. And why on earth are you using the wiis mainboard as a power source? Just grab two voltage converters and use your own power source

    I have a good connection on all legs but i have noticed that if i disconnect the infectus from the nand and test the d0-d7 pins directly from the infectus i have same result, d2 low voltage and all the rest high

    did you measure also from the d2 pad to the tsop of the infectus board too? So try and find the pin where the d2 pad is connected to and see if the trace is not broken somewhere.
    I have one infectus where some pads came loose after heavy use (unbricked about 20 wiis with that one and it still works with some patching to it )

    Trace isnt broken and traced back to pin on infectus tsop, tried with power on and same result, broken infectus ?

    Long shot but, do you know if i could read the nand with an xd card reader, info here :

    Interesting read

    One thing you can still try. Measure of any pins are connected to ground. Had one infectus where 1 pad was connected to ground. Returned that one for a new one.
    Never got it to work properly. Maybe you suffer from something simular?

    Just to let you know that I had the same problem yesterday.
    FBFB all the times. Looking again at my infectus turned out pad 5 - 7 came off
    It is working again now. Just measure all the pads to the small tsop. See if all your connections are still fine.
