Hi, I got the 003 error on a brand new (korean made?) wii and wanted to fix it as above. First I ordered the savemii. Next I followed the links for the smash stack and korean 003 fix but I unable to open any site of Free File Hosting Made Simple - MediaFire. Are there any restrictions? My current location is Shanghai (due to my job). Do they block this site, perhaps? Regards, Matt
I think mediafire is firewall in China. I will try to make a mirror on rapidshare.

Hi Mauifrog, thanks for quick reply. Autoboot SSBB ntsc? I am absolute beginner in this stuff. Guess I have to study this thread more carefully to understand what does it mean. Anyway I have not tried anything yet besides what I described yesterday. I ordered the savemii just yesterday from Australia and am waiting for it. Just tried to download the files you have linked to in your manual. Regards, Matt
Don't worry about the files until you get games to autoboot. You can edit a game iso to make it autoboot. There are apps that will do this.

but please let us know if you are able to boot SSBB PAL version.
Error 003 - Update
Thanks for all the contributors.
I got a Wii from China and it was working fine for few weeks. I am not sure if this has any chip inside. Most likely it is a softmod.
I wanted to access the WII shop and clicked on System Update. After that, the system updated and I got the dreaded "003: Unauthorized device was found" error.
I had almost given all the hopes when I came accross this forum. I read all the opinions/sugegstions and decided to give it a try. I started with the SaveMiiFrii video and then got a GC controller. I opened it and put that in 4th port. I got the 4.2 USA on the right bottom of my screen. I have a retail version of SSBB (I believe it is NTSC as I purchased this in the States) and also LEGO Indiana Jones. I tried to put that in but then the 4.2 USA message dissapears and I get a blank screen.
I have tried to play the Lego game on another WII and saved the data.ini file on the sD card to see if this boots up. But no success....
IS there any hope from here?
LEt us make this happen...
Not that I want to break your hope but I have the exact same situation (didn't read much about Wii and brick stuff before going online and updating...). My Korean Wii got the Error 003 brick.
I just sent my Wii to a private service shop that does a lot of hack on PS1,2,3, Xbox, Wii. They are changing the mainboard for a $100. I don't know if they're really going t change the mainboard or use the Infectus method (solder a chip and re-program the NAND) but it's the quickest way to go. I want to have it fixed before the end of year holidays.
There might be some new bug to be discovered or hardware hack (pluging-in a Bluetooth USB dongle to the USB port and ... well... just elaborating senseless theory) that will save this brick but... when?
I have a korean wii with da 003 error:unhautorized bla bla bla...
