Noob WII user here
I just purchased my second hand WII a few days ago, started reading the forum and decided to give the modding a try.
The little white box was on SM 4.0e and according to the "WII Drive Chip Database" it has a GC2-D2E chip (100%).
Decided to go with the excellent "Softmod any WII" guide by Mauifrog.
All went fine. I only had to try the NAND backup twice. First time I formatted the SD card with windows and during NAND backup it froze. After format with the SDFormatter tool it worked without any issues.
Got some backup games from a mate to test the mod.
Unfortionately I get the DVD read error 1167. So the Chip Database must be wrong as the games play fine on my mates WII.
Did not have the nerve to open the box to verify the chip. I was going for USBloader anyway so no biggie. Just ordered a new white WD passport essential 500GB . Hope to have it soon. Bye bye disc spinning noise and hello fast load times
Thanks you guys, and keep up the good work.
