    Hi mauifrog, thought I should update what I've done.

    first off, I took the Wii to a modder who confirmed that the console was messed up. What he did was swap the modded drive out with another and it was still unreadable....no original games etc playing even with the new drive. So therefore got a bricked wii to my understanding...i.e. system and not the drive messed up. Only options for this console was going further down the route of swapping the motherboard....but more money and hassle and also inexperience. Wasn't prepared to go down that route.

    So what I did was buy another faulty Wii with drive problems, but otherwise working ok.

    Swapped my Wikkey2 drive over to the other console and it read all original discs ok. Also recognised the copied discs, but still getting a 'insert "such and such" disc now error.

    Anyway, I'm happy that the original discs are reading at least....and almost there with modding it fully.

    I suspect that I corrupted my wiikey2 modchip by selecting a region code instead or originally selecting "NONE". I think this should be more clearly pointed out when updating the firmware of the Wiikey2. Otherwise, I suspect when running the system update again (not that it needed it anyway, as I'd already crippled it), but with careful selection, this could have just worked with the new drive.

    So I'm now at the point of soft modding and look forward to communicating here again with success and ending the nighmare it's been.

    Cheers and thank you again

    Don't use FAILMyWii, please don't. Auto-updaters like that are only bound to failures.
    And why did you format your Wii? It will cause troubles as you can see yourself.

    You can't install BootMii as Boot1; only as an IOS or Boot2.
    Follow the softmod guide in my signature, and be sure to read mauifrog's first post very well.
    If you have any questions during softmodding, all your questions go in the guide I suggested you, and not here.

    1. He wasn't addressing you;
    2. Brick My Wii isn't supported by wiihacks; you've been here long enough to know this by now.

    Will the wii get bricked if this happened...

    Hi, I was wondering:

    After installing everything for the wii homebrew, will my wii get bricked if I removed the SD card and never use it again?

    is the SD card necessary to keep in the wii at all times?

    and if I'm able to take out the SD card from time to time, do I have to still keep it in the wii?

    Reason why I'm asking is because I'm at a friend's house and I want to use his SD card instead of mine temporarily.
