hello. first of all,i'm sorry if my post going to sound so stupid.but i really2 need help here.
i'm a newbie and has no idea about hacking wii etc.
i currently is studying in japan, and bought an original wii here.
since the price of original wii game is v. expensive,i decided to unlock my wii. (which,not on my own). i sent it back to my hometown in malaysia,sent it to a shop there,and got it unlocked. i have no idea how they did it,but at first,i manage to play a game bought at a night market (very cheap and i assumed they must have downloaded it somewhere).
but sometimes,the disc appears to be unreadable. and i can't connect wifi on my wii. since i brought that wii back to japan,now i can't even play any japan region wii games. (i got a little bit confused right now,since if it's unlock,surely it can play any games from any region,isn't it?)
i even tried to burn games in DVD (read from one forum) and still,it's unreadable.
i tried homebrew channel. but still can't play any games. i've followed every steps written on the net.
i don't know what to do now.
since i can't play anything with my wii..
now,i even think to re-lock my unlock wii.and i don't know how.since i don't know that guy even using a modchip to unlock mine,or something else.if he really had installed a modchip inside my wii,what kind of modchip that can't even play any games,making my wii worst,can't even play anything.if really it was modchip,can i just remove it and still get my wii works?
i'm sorry to bother u guys.but if u can help me,i will be very grateful thanks in advance
btw.my wii's version is 4.2U
Try using Neogamma v7 to load your disc games instead of loading them through the disc channel.
If you don't know how to install it, look in the tutorial section.
i've tried that.and my wii freeze with blank screen
Do you have a usb flsh drive or small usb hard drive that you can format to WBFS and try your games via a usb loader?
No this is a problem with his IOS's .
Before I confuse your brains out (:P) have you made any other hardware/software related changes to your wii after it came back to you?
I think 99.9% what is happening is the chip is blocking the updates, but the games require those updates to run. Can you give us the names of all the games, working and not-working?
The not working game, it is just a black screen right?
And lastly you System Menu Version (look in settings, it should be something like 3.4E)
blacks screen = missing or uotdated IOS files normally.
Which files will all depend on which games.
my SMG is a black screen but it shows in the disc channel-I tried to install IOS 33 v1049 but I get a ret -1 error. Any help dave?
thanks in advance.
