I'm currently having this kind of problem, but i don't know my WII have modchip or not. I remember i run game thru softchip program in channel. Accidentally update the wii.
I want to know several thing:
-Can I download and burn SSBB dvd5 to use?
-if my WII doesn't have modchip, can it be fixed?
-Any other game other than mario kart can be used? How do i know my wii region?
-128MB sd card can be used?
-only the full copy of ssbb-pal will work, of which is in D9 format.
-no modchip, no fix
-marioKart is used for the MK-pawns. if u apply the SwapDisc-pwns, u may select many other games. read post#1 for info. didn't u?
-read post #1831, " do savemiifrii and GET the system menu version in the lower right corner (on screen). "
-128MB sd card will do the job at beginning. 512MB is suggested for the rest of SoftMod Any Wii procedures. Yet, 1GB card is highly recommended as for completing the NAND backup process.
by the way, i found wasabi-DX modchip does a brilliant job on #003 recovery. not the others. :P

B.L.I.N.D. is autobotted and supposed to load in MMM, if you could boot it up using a GC controller on a #003 console. Once MMM / Wad-Manager in action, installing cios70-v6174-v3.6.wad for 4.2x or cios80-v6945 for 4.3x will unbrick the #003.
good luck, aracdekidflo.
Important things is, how do i know my WII contain modchips? Other than disassemble the WII, any other way to sure there is modchip inside?
and do you have any download link for ssbb? it kinda hard to find it dvd9, mostly uploaded is dvd5.
Hi Mauifrog, thank you for your kinda guide, it helpful for many people , hope it would for me also.
I followed your guide "softmod ANY Wii" to hack my Korean 4.2k Wii.
I finished chapter 2 - part 1 correctly, include update IOS and Wii Shop Channel. Every steps seemed perfect. Then I moved to "Part 2- Optional Region Change", as your guide before starting this chapter, I must go into Wii shop to remove my account, however, when I go back Wii menu from HBC (to enter shopping channel), the screen become dark, nothing appeared. Waiting for 10 mins, I kept pressing power button to force power off then hit it again - hoping it will turn on with Wii menu. But only strange screen appeared (black - red column alternating) (Not a dark screen or error 003) .
So, what happened with my wii? Did it be bricked?
Please give me some advices.
I have installed all of these and made A NAND Backup.
The HomeBrew Channel and Bootmii
I have tried turn on and off while pressing reset; with/without SD card but nothing change.
Before hack this, my wii had Korean language, Wiiflow channel (installed by former owner), and I dont know if it was modchiped or not.
I have tried to read threads in forum but canít find any similar cases and solution for this.
Thank you in advance, any help would be highly appreciated.
Load savemiifrii and insert that disc, then complete your region change. You have a semi brick, region settings do not match your system menu. Finish the change of the region settings. You need to delete your shop account before you start the region change, before you start chapter 2, but only if you have a shop account.
Thank you for your quick reply Mauifrog,
Just for confirmation (as I am an amateur), saying "Load savemiifrii and run that disk" you mean I have no way except have modchip and a GC control?
Thank you very much indeed.
So I run the MarioKartPWNS.bat then burnt disc1.iso and disc2.iso.
Successfully got the recovery menu (4.3USA on the right lower corner).
But nothing happened when I inserted disc1.iso (I heard the disc spun for some seconds then it stopped). I tried to burn the disc twice with good dvd5 discs, but failed.
Mauifrog, could you help ?
Thanks Mauifrog, I have solved the problem. My Wii now is 4.1U and running smoothly. Your guide helps me so much. Thank you.
