Hello Wii people!
Just bought my first Wii sometime in january 2011. Got it off ebay for 74.00 shipped. Console had a game a gamecube disc stuck in the dvd drive.
Took it apart to find a game rental stuck in there, because the sticky residue around the center section caused the disc to not eject. Works perfect with the game removed. :) Bought a few broken Wiis, fixed and resold them since then. Not really into soft modding, but I may get bored and try it. Really was enjoying the great information on Nand programming posted here. I got a couple bricked Wiis off ebay that I want to try and restore. Seems like a good challenge for me once I get all the tools needed.
Well that is my story, peace!
Hey! You sound interesting. Anyways, a mod will soon be by to officially welcome you.
