hey guys I have a d2pro9 v2 modchip(soldered) on my d2c2 wii.
its been going great but has been semi-bricked for a while as I have the duplicate weather channels and the 'Settings' opera problem.
I used this NTSC wii unsemi blocker from here:
NTSC Semi-brick fix disc
I burned it on a verbatim dvd and I put it in the wii
loaded it up and it started the system update.. but about half way,
it said "System update failed" and the system restarted. After that failed system update, the drive will not respond, the wii boots up fine, the homebrew channel works, the wads, etc - but the drive is frozen. When I go to the disk screen it says, 'Please insert disk' when the ntsc unblock disk is in.
I opened up the wii and checked the soldering to see if any wire came loose but everything was intact. I left the wii open to see what LEDs lit up and the red and blue light would just repeatedly flicker. The drive would make no noise at all.
I wonder what the problem is..
is my wii bricked? is the drive dead? or is it a simple firmware issue?
Heres some info on my wii before I inserted the disk:
d2pro9 v2 soldered with v1.6 utility disk
homebrew channel installed
firmware on wii v3.2
ANY help will be appreciated
update: while experimenting with some things, the drive momentarily started working for one session.. it booted up my backup of mlb 2k8 but right after it started blinking again.. maybe it could be a chip fry..
what are my best options if this is the solution?
I'll take the chip apart later and post the results
id like to know if this was the first case of this happening to anyone?
cuz im about to get a d2pro9 and im a little scared now
