dc2key at 3.1E
i have owned my wii since first release and got it chipped during a business trip to china, they installed a d2ckey chip. which at the time was one of the better chips i believe.
anyhow my wii has been sitting in cupboard for most of its life, and now my 5 year old is old enough to start playing games i thought about getting wii up and running for her.
now i know that things have probably moved along way since i got my wii modded.
So from my current situation in what direction should i be looking to head.
only want to use the wii for playing games at the minute, then maybe onto some more of the complex stuff after.
Any help will be greatly appreciated by and a 5 year old!!!!
don't know if you want to stick with your chip and the disc loading route..
My chip is still present in the wii but unused as softmodding opens the door for so much more, mediaplayers (.mp3/.avi included) etc.
have a look on softmodding:) (or the hardmod section of the forum, maybe you find something to update your chip or something) whatever you do, do not update your wii by game discs or online when setting up wifi on your wii.
if you completly want to roundhousekick your wii to be super duper up to date and prepared for gameloading from disc or usb drive.
use the softmod any wii guide (link below) you will end up perfectly softmodded with a proper set of nice tools, loading apps, perfect cIOS/IOS set
i like to have my game collection on one harddrive, no need to stand up and switch discs/burning, getting mad on bad burns or scratched discs etc.
if you decide to go on usb loading use the Fat32 guide (link below:))
check out wiiflow on youtube, when you see that you want to get it;)
good luck for your next steps
think so. but cross check here
USB Drive Compatibility List
I realize you're an "old timer," but if you skim the Introduction section of the site you'd get some much needed links to get your Wii where you want it. Feel free to make an intro, but for an '08 member it's not like it's crucial :)
Another section to look at (hardmod side) is here and a similar one for softmods can be found here.
having problems with a 1gb kingston card at the moment. not sure if its compatible or not
To check your card for compatibility have a look here or here
best is a 2gb sandisk (no mini, no sdhc card)
right this is where im upto now.
after blocking the disc and online updates, i cant see the load/install option?
also when i reboot my wii it goes straight to the mmm menu? where can i find the priiloader settings to enable boot to system?
If you don't know what the hack does- you don't need it.
Your wii should now block Disk updates and online updates.
If you want to autoboot USBLOADER, install USBLoaderCFG_Forwarder.dol
If you want to autoboot HomeBrew Channel, install HBC-Forwarder.dol
NEVER UPDATE YOUR WII FROM NINTENDO- read the forum and do it yourself
Optional priiloader settings-
You can set you wii to boot the system menu, HomeBrew Channel, Priiloader, USBloader, and any other app you wish. Settings are found in priiloader, settings. Set the autoboot and return to what you like best.
Example: Set the autoboot and return to installed file, now your wii will autoboot to your USBloader or HBC- Excellent option for those with kids.
when you got your nand backup you can rename the bootmii folder to bootmii_old
mmm wont show up again
get into priilloader like mentioned
powering on while holding reset
rest should be there
settings now sorted in the priiloader!!
need to purchase hdd now.
