    Cool A wii quest - and a few questions

    Got my hands on a 2nd hand console.

    The console is an LEH109XXXXXX around 2 years old and the only problem It was listed as having was not playing games from disc.

    It finally arrived yesterday and I 'couldn't wait to rip er open' LOL.

    It's on 3.1E and according to the 'messages' last time it was used was sept 2008! Pretty sure it wasn't modded so i thought 'bang wii sports in and update to 4.1E'.

    Wii sports loaded and went on on to choose a game etc but when you do..

    Wow, the drive unit sounded more like a food processer! (and disc reading failed error etc..).

    (Reading around it appears that it may just be a case of adjusting those 4 drive screws untill I hit the sweet spot)

    So the questions (in order of importance for soft modding) are:

    1. If I cant get the drive to read a disc (in order to get to 4.1E that way) is there anything I can run from SD to get HBC on in order to update via NUSD?

    2. Can this drive motherboard GC2-D1 allow backup discs to be run?

    3. Can I just swap out the drive from my spanking new wii just long enough to run the update? (ie is the firmware backward compatible)

    4. Is there any point swapping the GC2-D1 mobo onto my working dvd drive?
    I know, I know, look at answers for 2. + 3. above, but I asked anyway

    My plan of action at this moment seems to be

    a) Unlock parental code to allow updates.

    b) Hopefully get the drive to a point that it will at least read disc to allow update to 4.1

    c) If that fails swap out the drive from my new wii to get the update and thus HBC etc running

    d) If compatible and the GC2-D1 does allow play from backups, swap the drive motherboard as well
    as swapping the drive out.

    e) End up with two working wiis, one of which will be run from HDD only, the other with a working DVD backup player and bootmii as boot2.

    e) Go onto delve into the mysteries of coding for the wii!!!

    Keep you posted on my blog HERE. Thanks Wiihacks, Just what i always wanted, but could'nt be bothered to set up myself....lol!

    If it's on 3.1 then you can install HBC, cIOS and things on it. You can manually update the Wii to 4.1 using IOS60patched and System Menu 4.1E, then install the game IOS38, 53, 55, 56 and 57 (if needed) and it would be good to go as a USB machine.

    This should be a vunerable boot1 unit so you can install boot2 hack on it.

    1. Just softmod it.

    2. Yes, only D3-2 prevents it.

    3. If you want to, it'snot required though, unless SD slot is broken or something.

    4. Umm.

    Thumbs up How silly of me - Head-slap!

    What was the title of dogeggs tutorial that i've already used? - oh yeah 3.1-4.1, DOH!

    Here I was going to void my warranty on the new wii for no reason, well to try and update via disc!

    Well thats cleared everything up for me mate. Hopefully i'll have some luck hitting the sweet spot with the old drive screws/insulation tape trick so that i can get GC discs going.

    Funny how I can now reel of quite a bit of advice to others, yet forget the very basics myself. Shame on me

    Now, I can make use of that 8GB SDHC card I had lying around!

    Time to start looking at some source code tweaking....YAY

    I did wonder why you were asking. I almost went mental with sarcasm mode there.

    You won't find me in IRC, so you'll be saved that at least.
