My wii is bricked with Metroid Prime NTSC-Update (don't remember what number of game, but it was the first released for the wii).
I have a PAL wii with the first version of WiiKey, and i got i bricked when i was a 2.xE.
The sources i have looked on tells me that i'm on 2.xE because i only get a black screen with Savemii.
I was trying everything, untill i came over Dogeggs Brick Tips.
I don't really understand the talk about this Drivechip, it's such a long time ago this brick happend.
But the thing i need help with here is that i don't understand how i to install this Drivechip?
The lines i've been following on Dogeggs Brick Tips is like this:
2. Preloader Installed? Preloader is uninstalled by installing a new System Menu
4. Twilight Hack in Wii Memory
6. cIOSCORP or drivechip installed?
This is the place i don't know where to go.
I can't tell if i have installed the Drivechip, but how do i installed it on a full-bricked wii?
i'll be glad for some help.
You say you already have a Wiikey, that'll be your drivechip.
Your Wiikey allows you to boot non-Nintendo disk and in this scenario would allow you to boot a brick fixing disc.
However and this is a strong however you must be able to boot the recovery menu, a blank screen will not be sufficient. A successfully booted recovery menu will show your system menu revision in the bottom right of the screen as follows x.x(Eur) where xz is the version numbers. Mine would show 4.0(Eur).
I don't think that savemii can recover a region brick, they generally only work with banner bricks. You could try though.
Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
