    Question Hello! New and in need of help...

    Hi all!

    So my worst nightmare came true last week... I fully bricked my Wii
    I was the proud owner of a Korean Console which had been modified to run 3.2U and was also set up with backup loader so I could play the few original PAL games I was buying here in the UK.
    Unfortunately, I bought a USA original of Guitar Hero 5 and when i wanted to play it, it asked me to update. I had been reluctant to do so for ages as i know NOTHING about modifying Wiis (all the mods were done for me, i basically bought it fully unlocked already and didn't do anything myself) but i was stupidly convinced by my cousin that i could update no problem.... WRONG!!!
    When I switch my Wii on now I get: Error 003: Unauthorized device detected

    We had obviously not done the right research because as soon as i typed it into google i realised i wasn't the only one in this predicament!

    Anyway, that's how useless I am with all this stuff...

    So basically I have 2 questions:

    Is there ANYTHING I can do with my bricked Wii or is it literally just a nice shiny white box now? e.g. get it fixed? sell it? ANYTHING!?

    I'm getting a second hand console which i will update to 4.2, what can I do to unlock it so it'll play my USA games and my DVD copies?

    Thanks for the help!

    We have a specific forum for help with bricked Wii's. I you post this there you will get a good response I'm sure.

    Hi and welcome to WiiHacks KaylaSilver

    If you need advice or help for anything Wii related you have joined the right site, whether its hard or soft modded.

    Don’t be shy, ask if you are stuck, just don’t expect other people to do all the work for you.

    Before you start anything, make sure you read the rules go over the tutorials, and most importantly, search before asking questions.

    Make sure you post in the correct areas of the forums.

    Here is the site index wiihacks ultimate index written by ShadowSonic2

    If you are starting from scratch, new 3.1-4.1 written by Dogeggs

    If you already have Homebrew, upgrade to 4.1 written by Dogeggs

    Don’t update to 4.2, but if you are already on 4.2, complete 4.2 guide written by Messie

    2009 Wii Serial numbers after LU3884XXXX and LEH2676XXXX have probably got the new D3-2 chip that prevents playing backup DVD's. They can still use original discs and USB loaders.

    And please do donate to the forum if you are able so we can go on helping the Wii community.

    I hope you have a great time here at WiiHacks, and increase your knowledge of all things Wii.
