So, I'm gonna be ordering an Infectus 2 soon. I was wondering, though, would it be possible to install BootMii as Boot2 on my 4.2 Wii with the new Boot1 if I used Infectus to manually write it onto the NAND or something like that? Like, is it possible to essentially downgrade the Boot1 and overwrite Boot2 with BootMii using the Infectus chip?
EDIT: I have a friend with System Menu 4.1 and BootMii installed as Boot2. Could I just copy his Boot1 and Boot2 off his NAND backup onto my own and flash that?
sorry but this won't work. You need the vulnerable boot1 in your wii and you cannot change the boot1 in your own wii as the wii expects a certain version of boot1 in your wii due to the key burned into OTP memory. Believe me I also tried this already and it does not work!
Damn. Well once I have the Infectus maybe I'll keep the wires soldered into the Wii so if I need to use it again I can simply attach them to the Infectus again without soldering.
I have a fullybricked Wii and would like to do the Infectus procedure to get it back in life. However, having read a few forums and browsing the reseller websites for Infectus modchips, I am still not sure which "Infectus" product to order. I would like to follow either of the following procedures:
Wii brick fixing. Using an infectus tutorial. - GBAtemp.net
Please direct me to a suitable Infectus modchip product.
Thanks in advance
Buy the infectus 2 modchip, be sure not to buy the developers edition.
How old is your wii? if it has the newer boot1 than it will not work
Thanks again for responding to my query. I had been away from this forum for a few days as I had to work on an assignment deadline :) almost 40 now and still studying ;)
Ok, so is this INFECTUS2 "WII D2E D2C2 D2C DMS 6 WIRS SUPPORT!" - X360 - MULTI PLATFORM (X360-WII) + DEVELOPE HOT PRODUCT X360 - X360 Expansion a good one for me? Well, I have in fact 2 Wiis to be unbricked from Low Level Brick and one is from last June 09 and the other is just from last month. I guess they are both bricked for good :( Do you think I should still give this a try?
It is the correct chip however if you do not have the keys or a nand backup of those wiis you can throw them away or keep them until there will be a solution for those new boot1 style wiis.
I have the nand backup for the newer Wii but not for the older one.
If you have a nand backup from when the wii was still working then you can unbrick it using the nand flash method. No problem. It is only a shitty work to get the wires to the nand but when that is done you can flash it and your wii will work again :)
