    Disk eject software (homebrew) solution.

    Had an interesting situation I thought I would share.
    My son dropped his wii console some time ago, and damaged onehalf of the front faceplate to the point that it was hanging off. I guess he was manually moving it into position to eject his disks, but the whole mechanism eventaully became broken.

    I know there are some other physical damage done to the wii and I plan to get him another when I can. The thing is, it stills plays his disks fine, but he can't eject it and the mechanism is broken, and I don't want to physicall mess with it any further as far as taking things apart.

    I know there is no settings in the wii to activate the eject button, but I was wondering if there was a homebrew app that could do it.
    Ahh indeed there is, it is called Wii Homebrew - Eject DVD v0.1 (google it)
    Just click on the app and the disk ejects without having to physically mess with anything else.

    just thought I would share this, since I have never heard of this app and never hear of this situation happening to ppl, but I'm sure it does.


    JoostinOnline made a forwarder, and it can be found here.

    Neat info. Never would have thought there would have been a program like that. Lucky for you there was, lol. I think I remember a user the other day who was trying to make a nand backup but his eject button was broke.

    Probably find a way if you do some searching or post the question in an area that is indended for wii related issues.
    Never fails though, give someone a solution to an issue, and it's still not good enough for them lol.

    As long as we are spooning, excuse me, I mean spoonfeeding, I thought I would go ahead and post this link.

    I made it almost 2 months ago. It is just a channel version of the app so people wouldn't need the HBC or an SD card to eject. I had never made a channel before, so it is nothing more than a STATIC banner.

    That kind of dedication diserves spooning lol.

    I see nothing wrong with Joostin's work that he linked you to. "Unsuccessful" is hardly a qualitative nor a quantitative response. That's like saying "I softmodded and failed. What's wrong?" Leaves a lot to be desired and to the imagination...
