What modchip to unbrick GC2 D2C drive ? (And other questions…)
I think I have a full brick Wii and I would like to know what is best modchip to solve it.
My Wii DVD drive is GC2 D2C.
I don't have Bootmii, neither Preloader/Priiloader, nor NAND Backup (but I can have some NAND backup from some other Wii).
How did it brick:
-The person who gave this Wii to me told me he was playing Metroid Other M for the very first time with USB Loader GX (a while ago).
-He thinks he accepted some update, but was able to play.
-Then he pressed "Home" button or Pause and went to work.
-When he came back from work he had some black screen.
-And since there is always this black screen or no signal.
What did I tried so far:
-I used the SaveMiiFree GameCube controller tip.
First I thought it didn't work because of my bad timing
That's why I trained on some other Wii to get the perfect timing.
I tried again on the bricked Wii and I've never seen the firmware number.
According to the person who gave me this Wii he has probably done 4.3E update with Metroid Other M or so.
-Then I switched Wii DVD player and whole wi-fi module (the 3-parts thing).
Result: my Wii DVD Player and wi-fi module seems to work on a other unbricked Wii. But other DVD player or Wi-fi module doesn't unbrick my Wii.
So here are my questions:
1) What do you suggest to do or try next?
2) From what I've read here (great ressources by the way) I need to program flash with some modchip.
But what modchip should I choose for my GC2 D2C drive?
What is the best modchip: Infectus, Infectus 2, Driverkey/Wasabi DX?
3) How do we solder modchip? On Wii DVD drive or on Wii motherboard? Are modchip with clipping system as good as the soldering one?
4) Once I have fixed my Wii and reinjected NAND, could I remove modchip and use it to solve other Wii?
Or will I always need to have modchip to be able to play?
If so I guess modchip without soldering are better.
Please let me know about it.
