Hi everyone =]
I've got a Wii about a month ago, and I don't have a clue of what it has... I guess it has a modchip, because it accept the games I had downloaded this far. I always run NTSC-U games, none problem with that... And I never installed any Homebrew or other hack, neither know if it had any of it installed before I buy it.
But when I updated it with the game Trauma Team, it came with the Error 003. I've searched for many sites and forums and end here.
So, there is one thing is troubling me... I've read that the Error 003 *only happens* on Korean Wiis transformed into other region. My system menu was in english (I think it has Spanish also), but i checked the model of my Wii, and it says RVL-001(USA), it's made on Chine and has a small tag with japanese text. This is correct?
Well, I cannot try the Method #3 because I've never got a Indiana PWNS. I'm looking forward Methods #1 and #2, but I've got neither a Game Cube control nor a SaveMii... So I will only be able to try this when I buy some of these, right?
Speaking of SaveMii, what exactly it does? Skip the system menu? This will work here in my case? If I got one, I will be able to play the games?
And only one more question... I learned the hard way to not update my Wii with Trauma Team. Assuming it has the 4.2 update, I will never be able to update the Wii for 4.2 and 4.3? By no ways? I won't be able to run games that require this update?
This post was big and english is not my mother language, so sorry for any bother and thanks for any help you guys can provide... Thank you very much!
Howdy mauifrog and all..
a mth back, i had bricked a wii with error003.. (regret not aware of this site earlier) probably firmware is older version like 3.0+ (bought in mid 2008) while accidently updated to 4.2/4.3? by my kids..
my earlier thread shows that most likely my wii is equip with D2C Pro.. softmod unknown to me as both mod for this wii were done by a "friend".. (I cannot locate him anymore)
i like to try out method 1 but my knowledge of software is below average.. can i highlight my doubts in red so tat more visible?
please lead me and shine out of the path of 003 darkness..
[QUOTE=mauifrog;208463]Guide: How to fix Korean 4.2 error: 003 unauthorized device has been detected
What does not work:
Smash Stack via SSBB = FAIL
All recovery disks = FAIL
SDDm NAND fill = FAIL
Wii Fit time change = FAIL
4.2k system update via disk = FAIL
Region Free game = FAIL
Update: 4.3 003 error wiis must install cIOS80-v6174.zip. If you updated from 4.2 to 4.3 and received this 003 error, thiis guide should work for you. <1. How about eariler version?? 2. Do you mean preinstall with cIOS80 v6174 or install with mario kart??>
Method #1 Mario Kart Channel Install
This guide will fix the 003 error, only if ios36 is patched with the trucha bug.
This would typically require cIOSCORP 3.x to be installed prior to system update
If you where loading backups from the disk channel, you may have cIOSCORP
Give it a try, best of luck. <3. Possible to check wat IOS i have at the current freezing stage?>
This will install cIOS70-v6174-v3.6.wad <4. means to say "cIOS70 will be installed onto the wii sys after completing this guide?>
From cIOSCORP 3.6, which will fix your 003 error
13 confirmed recoveries
Patched ios36, from cIOSCORP 3.x or other method
Possibly ios250 (probably not required)
Mario Kart iso- unscrubbed, in region <5. What is meaning of unscrubbed, in region?>
A modchip- preconfigured to autoboot <6. Does D2C Pro have this ability?>
Must Not Have Installed Mario Kart Channel

I've tried castelvania method. when I changed the disc it make sound like it's trying to read disc but nothing happend.I've tried with sonic and black knight too... Does it mean that my wii doesn't have patched ios36? what would happen id ios36 didn't patch??

I have a couple of korean wii's with this 003 error. They are all equipped with modchips that support autotboot and region free.
Tried the first 2 methods, no luck. I'm using a savemii chip. All these consoles used to boot backups prior to the system update.
I turn the console on with savemii inserted in the memory card slot. I get a black screen with 4.2 (USA) written on the bottom right had side of the screen. Upon inserting the mario kart or castlevania disc nothing happens......i keep getting a black screen. I have waited for more than 20 mins but nothing happens. The disc is spinning continuously but no response on the screen. The Wii controller also doesn't sync.
Any ideas as to why this is happening? Any and all help would be much appreciated.
Im currently trying to use method 1. I am on the savemiifrii screen with the 4.2(usa) on the bottom right. But when i insert the disc it nothing happens?
I have applied the autoboot patch already but don't hear the disc spinning.
Any help is appreciated.
I have an idea
Can I play Indian Jones and continued of playing to the region, which has run the memory Card????

i just bought a wii for my daughter few days ago as her birthday gift, until yesterday i came back from work she told me that the wii is broken, i switch on the wii and found an error 003 as per topics. when i asked her what she did with the console,
she replied ..
she doesn't like the shortcut at menu and wanna delete saved game so she formats the console. when she boots up the console. the menu were blank and stuck on the screens preloader 0.29, when she finds up it messed the system up she connected to internet dan do update hoping it will do justice. now the wii booted up and stuck on the screens error: 003 unauthorized device has been detected.
after reading some post and get some valuable lesson and info's .. i've tried some of the methods in this forum but didn't have a clue how to start with it.
when buy it i didn't know it was a softmod wii. it's a korean wii with system menu v4.0U but now i didn't know what the version of it .. can't get to the blank screen with the version info at the below screens using GC. i tries to mount any dvd games but it seem locked the dvd drive input. i do have SD and SDHC and try to boot it using some of the stuff i download from the other thread. but still no luck.:dft005: was hoping that someone can guide me to the right directions
i manage to get some info on the console @ the shop i buy it. and warranties do not cover this type of error .. he ask me just to throw the console away :mad:
