    bad region update.... bricked?

    Well, i installed the d2pro9 last night on a dms drive. It worked fine. Unfortunately, in my hurry to test things out, the first think I put in the drive after modding was a ripped game. It loaded fine, i played it for a while, then went to sleep. i turn it on this morning, and it won't read anything. Not the game i played last night, not original games, not the d2pro9 util disk, nothing. it starts to try and read it, clicks a couple times, then nothing.

    The other thing i did last night was connect the wii to my wireless network. i didn't do any updates, just connected it.

    All I have been able to find about this problem is I totally screwed up the region update by loading a ripped game first (which sounds like its def the problem). Will I have any options at this point?

    Thank you all for your time and input

    can you get to see you wii settings? if you can its not semi bricked, it doesn't sound like a full brick as it turns on.

    how did you fit the chip? clip or solder?

    have you tried to unplug your wii for 10 mins then tried again?


    Why are you reading this? its always the same!!

    thx for the reply erb

    I can still do everything on the wii except load games. I did the 5 wire install here

    I soldered the power, ground, points g, h, and j.

    I have not tried leaving it unplugged for 10 minutes. I have only unplugged it for a couple seconds. I am trying leaving it unplugged for 10 right now.

    Thanks again for your reply!

    apart from re-checking your solder joints i don't know too much about the d2pro9 so you might need some one who knows a bit more about them than me. sorry

    I dont have a d2pro, But the game you played, Was it out of region? Only reason I ask is because with the Wiikey you need to play an own region game after installing to set the REGION code to the correct one.
