Will do Maui, I'll try today after work. Sorry about not using my original thread, I was not thinking clearly when I posted. I blame it on the alchohol and my seahawks getting their butts kicked. Won't happen again.
EDIT - I thought I read once that you will not be able to access the recovery menu w/o a working bluetooth module. Am I correct in stating this, cause I do have a working RM, so just wondering if it rules out the BT as I don't currently have a spare? Thanks
Ok, I finally found time to try to fix this wii again. As per Mauifrog's request, I tested a working BT module, (and also tested the BT module that was in it in a working wii and it was good). None-the-less I can't get anything to boot.
-tested wi-fi module = good
-tested BT module = good
-Recovery menu = good (4.2u)
-Autoboot with drivekey (set to autoboot) via Recovery menu
---multiple original disks = nothing
---autoboot wad manager disk = nothing
---autoboot mario kart (with sysmenu 4.2u embedded in channel) = nothing
---autoboot any region changer = nothing
I still need to try other methods from maui's post like the SSDM fix, but I don't see how I can fill up memory with this wii in its current condition.
A refresher from my previos post.
- I bought this wii bricked with no knowledge of it
- No Bootmii
- No priiloader
- Sys menu 4.2u via RM
-has working disk drive, BT mod, and wi-fi mod.
I think this motherboard is heading to the trash soon. Anyone have any more ideas???
EDIT - Also thought I'd point out that none of the autoboot disks (wadmanager, any region changer) would not boot in my working wii, though originals do.
This could mean a bad burn, or bad iso, but these would be the first disks I have burnt that didn't burn properly if thats indeed the case.
I think loading a save game hack is a viable option, along with the wii fit fix, but I won't get far unless I can get at least an original disk to autoboot. Thanks, as I am sure you guys are getting impatient with this wii like I am.
You can't autoboot recovery discs because the Wii doesn't have a patched SM IOS.
You should be able to run a retail disc patched to autoboot. Did you try patching a retail disc with Bootme? If you don't know how to run Bootme you can patch manually with a hex editor. Just change the first byte of the ISO from R to 0.
What's the Wii's serial number? Maybe it's boot2 compatible.
Yeah i know about having ios 36 or sysmenu trucha bugged, but I was trying everything.
Yes the wii is boot2 compatible, and I have looked into getting an infectus.
As for your other question, I have only been trying original disks, not backups because originals autoboot in my working wii. I will make a copy asap and patch it to autoboot. Which would be the best choice to start with. WiiFit? I think I'll get started on that now. Any other ideas let me know. Thanks
Yes, I would try the Wii fit method. If it's boot2 compatible don't toss the board. Worst case, It's fixable via NAND programming.
you'll be fine with the Infectus !
save your motherboard, save the planet.
I guess I didn't mean "throw it in the trash." Just said it out of frustration. We'll see if wii fit method works before I buy an infectus. Im waiting for my new 1:1 rip to get done so I can patch it to autoboot and burn it.
EDIT - wii fit set to autoboot is in my wii now after entering RM, still spinning, not booting, what gives?
Your inbox is full so I can't reply to your PM. You have to delete some messages before you can accept PM's again.
Unfortunately, I do not have any working motherboards lying around (that aren't already in completed Wiis). I do have a couple dead ones but those obviously won't help you.Hey stream, I was wondering if you have working motherboard, preferably boot2 capable but not necessary, that you would be willing to part with.
Regarding your current status with the Wii, I don't know why you can't autoboot a retail game but I think you've done all you can with it. You most likely have to flash the Bootmii ARM code into boot2 at this point to fix the Wii. I know there's guides out there on how to flash with Infectus but you may want to hold off for at least a week before purchasing one. There are many hard to get tools and materials you need to properly flash a nand and it's certainly not a job for everyone. If you aren't in the top 2% of people with great soldering skills, you will end up spending more than the cost of a new console to acquire everything you need. That being said, a new realistic guide on this may just appear soon.
