Hello and thanks for being here.
First off I wanted to say I'm glad you are here. I appreciate the work you are doing and help you are giving. I plan to jump over and donate next because a site like this needs to survive.
Unfortunately I found out after a few bad experiences that kids do not understand the cost involved with buying and replacing games. :mad: I am relatively new to soft-modding the Wii but have hard-modded a couple of my other consoles in the past and recently soft-modded the PS3. I initially had keyed my Wii and decided to soft-mod for the benefit of the HD loader. It worked initially until I decided to "upgrade" some features. As a result the HD loader stopped working so I tried a few things, decided to recover the NAND and bannerbricked. Recovered (luckily). And now I'm back to the Wii not successfully reading any disks or the HD again. I plan to explore the issue(s) further in the Forums.
About me... I have an IT background and am relatively technical. I've always been one to try to figure out how things work and see if I can take them apart and put them back together (while still having them work.) I did dabble in programming initially but never took it very far.
Again thank you for giving your (collective) time to this forum. It's nice to have a place where you can trust the information you are reading and support when you may need it.
