I gave up on my bricked KR Wii with the 003 error.
I traded it in to a local game shop & paid the $115 extra for a used 4.0u
drivekey & wasabi both said they've got nothing that will work with my old D3-2 drive.
After that & Nintendo telling me they won't fix it even if I paid them too, I decided to do the trade-in
at first I was beginning to think I wasted $115 getting the used 4.0u model, because it would not play ANY of the discs I brought from Asia
Finally after installing HBC 1.0.6 & backing up the NAND I was able intall CIOS 14, NeoGamma & Pre-Loader .30
the disc channel still doesn't work with not even a single disc of mine, but NeoGamma does, so that's my first icon now in the system menu. I moved the disc channel onto the 2nd page so it's out of sight & out of mind.
but, I still do have some little issues that bug me.
After all that messing about with pre-loader setting the hacks to skip the Health Warnings etc. it still shows those when I use NeoGamma to load a game.
I'm sure it's because I'm not using the system menu's disc channel, so maybe I just have to put up with it.
Does anyone know a way I can get the disc channel working with my out of region games again ?
The pre-loader is supposed to do this, but it appears not to be doing the trick.
I HAVE set it to be region free in pre-loader, but still can't use disc channel.
"unable to read disc"
I was never able to get the recovery screen to appear on my old bricked 4.2 kr, but it might have been because I was using a GameStop knock-off instead of a real Nintendo GC controller.
oh, BootMii menu doesn't come up for me any longer either. It blanks the screen for a bit then comes back to HBC.
maybe that's where I should be trying to set region-free, in BootMii
Anyone know how to get BootMii menu working again ?
