Thread: Acquired a previously soft modded Korean Wii, start from scratch?

    Acquired a previously soft modded Korean Wii, start from scratch?

    Hi everyone!

    Please know that all of this hacking of Wiis business is completely foreign to me. I followed one instruction I found here where it said "load this file", I downloaded it, then looked at it with "what the heck am I supposed to do with this? Burn it?" I am, however, an IT person by trade, so I pick this stuff up easily.

    A friend of mine gave me his old Wii. It is a white Korean Wii and is likely quite old. On the menu screen it has homebrew, SoftChipr92m and neogamma (with another neogamma with a 002 fix?). It is running version 4.0u.

    Ultimately, I'd like to play North American region games and Netflix. All of the tutorials I have seen here don't seem relevant to the type of mod my Wii has.

    Do I start from scratch? How? Should I? Is it salvageable? I'm lost.

    Many thanks!

    Yes, you certainly can re-hack your Wii (and you probably should, just to make sure everything is kosher). Since you're an IT guy, you will no doubt gain a tremendous benefit by doing some required reading! Yay! ;-) Afterwards you should be a lot more knowledgeable on the subject and ready to think about hacking your Wii.

    How do I first unmod it? I can't find anything about softchipr92m that's in English. I'm more of a hardware "guy". Programming in general isn't particularly my cup of tea

    I've read through some of your listed tutorials. I'll spend some more time on it tonight, I think.

    Cool. No need to un-mod the Wii, the steps in the Softmod Any Wii guide will overwrite everything that it needs to. You'll run more of a risk of bricking the Wii by attempting to remove the existing mod rather than just overwrite it.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Was able to follow the guide just fine (after finding a 2gb SD card... THAT what the biggest challenge!). I'm now working on getting Netflix up and running, but everything else seems to be working fine.

    Thanks for the help!

    ETA: The only thing I'm getting stuck on now is playing local games (got Netflix to work!). I popped in Skyward Sword and it says a "system update must be done before being able to play this title". I could have sworn I saw an option in Priiloader for this, so I downloaded a new version, installed it, booted it up, but when I go into the menu hacks area, it says "can't find hacks.ini" or something to that effect. Reinstalled Priiloader, same deal. Any ideas?

    Edit 2: Found the hacks.ini file, disabled updates and enabled region free games and it works! Yay!
