Curse of the unmoddable Wii
Got a very odd problem for everybody here. Having tried almost everything I can think of, it would appear my white Wii is unmoddable, unless Im missing something entirely which is why Im posting here :) My Wii is second hand from ebay however which makes me think perhaps its been modded before and returned to a virgin state before shipping, its the only thing that might explain whats going on.
The wii is now on 4.3e (I updated it from 3.4 which is what it came with, looking back that was probably a silly thing to do). I tried softmodding with HackMii which refused to run stating no vulnerable ios, so I tried the HackMii Fix which also failed... the problem being that no patched IOS's could be installed regardless of which IOS MMM had loaded. I tried manually installing certain patched IOS's, all failed. The only ones that seemed to work were unmodified ones from Nintendo. I even tried ModMii, exactly the same issues. I have run syscheck and it found no patched IOS's. However it did state that Homebrew Channel 1.0.0 was installed on IOS0. Strange, there is no HBC on this wii. Under MMM's ISO Manager I saw that my Wii had all but three IOS's installed (236 being among the ones not installed FYI, also note that IOS0 doesn't show up at all)... is that correct for an unmodded system? Also while the games I have work, including GC games, the Wii Shopping Channel fails with an error code every time... I looked up the error code and every site I found said I need to contact Nintendo for servicing. So, is this wii unmoddable or has somebody modded it before and somehow messed up? If the latter is the case, is there a way to fix it? Also note that Ive been doing this via the Letterbomb exploit (I have no other means, but I doubt it would make a difference anyway).
Any help is hugely appreciated.
