Black wii - Modchip Question
first i want say, that you guys do a great especially the TuT writers and the Brains behind the whole Software-Thing.
I had read a lot of your post, now i had decided to buy a wii, i will the black wii, which must be the newest white wii, just with a black case.
I had talked with a Modder in my home-city, we said to me, that now on the market are wiis, which you cant modified. He said that I must pay for a rebuild and a new Discdrive. At all 130 €, with all guarantees, 2 year of rebuild for chip and the rest of nintendo.
I know there is a Softmod option, but honestly the risk is to high for me,
i prefer to pay more and so i can sleep better. The brick-risk is and the option that nintendo can ban, is for me, to high compared with Chip cost.
My first idea was to let make a chip, wiikey2, on and work with usbloader and a harddrive. But the Modder says, that even the usbloader can brick my wii.
What do you think about it?
PS: Sorry for the bad english. ;-)
in fact, either softmod or chipmod would cause u a brick if u dont learn well to manage and play the ISOs.
buy ur Wii and read ur threads before shxts happen
hardchip good for disc reading
softchio need for usbHDD playing
chipmod + softmod gives u almost 99.99999% recoverable if BRICKED.
Thanks for your answear.
I think i get it.
For less brick-risk i need modchip and softmod or a modchip with new discdrive.
Its that right or is even with modchip a risk? The newest wiis will surely have firmware 4.2e, but there is only a problem for games from other regions?
So i can without greater problems take a wiikey2 and make a softmod or change the discdrive.
I ask because before i pay 130 euros, i will make sure that there will after that not happen bigger problems.
So i think first i buy the wii, look what drive and firmware is will have und make then my decision. Maybe i start again to read about this things, it looks i dont have get all information that i need.
But until that point, thanks a lot.
