Thread: Unable to mod my new black Wii

    Unable to mod my new black Wii

    I just bought a black Wii and so far can't get a mod chip to work in it. First I tried a Flatmod which just ejected backup games, it ran original discs fine. I next tried a Drivekey which just gives me a black screen with a message telling me an error has occured, eject the disc and reboot the console. Again original discs work fine. ISO are copied to Verbatim DVD-R at 2X speed using Imageburn. I'm thinking that Nintendo have have made this black model mod proof. Any suggestions?

    Will a softmod work?

    The Black Wii and serial numbers starting LEH3 and LEH5 are currently Un-moddable as they have the D3 nothing drives, the only way to mod these is as follows:

    Wasabi DX Chip and include a dvd rom drive board replacement for all Wii versions inclusive of the unmoddable Leh5*** series drive and Black wii Consoles.

    I have just done mine and it is the only way, Nintendo have changed the drive roms to combat modding with a chip.

    I have just spent 2 days trying the softmod alternative but nothing seems to work.
    What if I were to replace the whole DVD drive with a D2C replacement? Could I then use any modchip with that?

    I think you will need to replace the rom board, not just the drive,
    I sent mine away to be done and the whole job cost 99 + postage,
    Alot less hassle!!

    Your options are to replace the board as these D3-2 Boards now prevent DVDR Backups from being read.

    OR

    Softmod your wii like any other wii exept you will need to use a USB Loader.

    All sorted now. I replaced the DVD drive and installed a Drivekey chip. It's working perfectly now. And thanks for your help
