    My price included shipping, Ntsc/USA, takes around 5-7 days and is boot2 capable... Don't know what more you want lol

    And it was £62 which is more like $95? (at an estimate)

    I know Bad_Ad84, I wasn't saying yours was a bad price. I just figured with shipping that far maybe someone closer to here would cost less. I wasn't saying you were charging to much just trying to feel out the market in North America.

    Sorry if I offended you.

    The serial is LU112106256, the 6 is in a box.

    Does that mean anything to anyone?

    That Wii is definitely Boot2 compatible and would be an easy fix for a programmer.

    edit: and you must have bought it used because it is much older then a year. That is close to a launch Wii witch would date it around 2006.

    OK, I may have jumped the gun on that. Nintendo shuffled up the serial numbers a couple of times to where there were not all in numeric order according to date. Yours is going to be somewhere close to one of those points. Look here for reference. It may not be Boot2 compatible.

    Its a mix!!! look at this!!!
    Wii Drive Chip Database - Serial Number Estimation

    Options:
    1. Buy a MOBO from another USER (bad_ad -- streamline)
    2. I can try to flash boot2 when i take it apart i can def tell what drive is in there and then boot2 might be an option
    3. I can just flash your nand backup in to and MAKE sure everything is ok when that is done!!!

    Ok, since I'm gonna take this thing apart no matter what I do is there a way to tell by looking inside the wii?

    If it is boot2 compatible I'm gonna get it flashed, If it is not then I'm gonna buy a mobo that is. Since I messed up once, I'd like the safety of having bootmii as boot2 incase I somehow do it again.

    Assuming you have a rev 01 board your datecode on the Hollywood chip should not be higher than 0830 (this number is at the last row the 4 first digits on the CPU) I know that 0811 is still fixable and 0830 is not anymore. So any number in between please post to this topic and I can modify this information. Still need to find out the cut off point for it.

    Re-Looking over the wii-drive data-base.... it looks like you will not be lucky this time around!! You will have a perfectly working wii if you flash... or you can buy a boot2 mobo... up to you!!!

    If you decide to go the route of new mobo then let me know what you want for your wii mobo!!! (LOL)
