    No disc hack for virgin 4.3?

    This is my first post on here so sorry if I do it wrong.

    I have an old 4.3U wii with a burned out disc drive. (burned out after I got a care package on black ops, big surprise) Anyway, the only reason I still have it is I am hoping there will eventually be a hack for 4.3 without a disc.

    MY IDEA: To those of you who are developers, would it be possible to do find an exploit in a virtual console game played off an sd card? There is save data for them, so I figure if you could change some of the code of the save file, you might be able to load some unauthorized code to install bootmii and homebrew. I'm not sure if this will work, it's just my idea.

    I know there isn't one yet. I was just posting an idea for how one might be created. I just don't have the time or the right skills to do more research into this.

    I've soft modded a 4.3 wii with a busted drive. It's easy. Just borrow a working drive, attach it, use the disc, run the exploit, install hbc/etc.

    Worked nice.

    Can you explain how you attached a working drive? Because since my first one busted I just went and bought a new wii, so I have a working drive available.

    Disassemble broken wii. Disassemble good wii. Disconnect drive from broken wii. Disconnect drive from good wii. Attach good drive to broken wii.

    You must own Smash Brothers Brawl or Lego Indiana Jones (first one) game disc to softmod 4.3. Do what I did and pick up a used copy for 20 bucks at Game Stop or somewhere similar. It will be well worth the 20 bucks.
