    Us SEMI BRICK Wii (any help truly appreciated)

    I was advised not to post a question in the intro section, which I concur with and am now posting here. I hope this is okay. If not, someone please point me in the right direction.

    I have read so much here and I have forgotten half of what I have seen.

    Needless to say, there is a question or two I have, if you don't mind.

    1.) Why would you chip when you can soft?

    2.) What is better? Chipping or softing or both combined?

    I have followed all instructions to a tee re: softmodding. And everything works almost flawlessly on my Wii. (Occasional freeze when returning to sysmenu or maybe I'm too impatient and think it's faster to reset than wait)
    I can`t or don`t see the point in chipping.

    3.) I`m also trying to help a friend with a semi-bricked LU37 Wii with (he thinks) SunKey chip. I have tried to run 289 repad to no avail. I have tried to run a few backup games to get an update, however nothing wants to give me the option of updating. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If I have missed something while searching please just let me know and I will keep searching the forums and tuts. Also his Wii will play burned games, but not NSMB.



    My Wii
    System Menu 4.1U - Preloader v.030 - Bootmii - cIOS38rev14
    HBC 1.0.6 - USB Loader GX - 500GB USB HDD Comstar - Opera Internet
    NeoGamma R7 - ISO Dumper

    My Friends Wii
    LU37 , System Menu (unknown) - No other softmods - Sunkey (Couple years old)

    Firstly if your friend has no homebrew then NSMB is going to be the best way to fix the semi-brick. Rent a copy or buy it, it's actually a good game and worth supporting Nintendo.

    If he does have homebrew and cIOS then install a System IOS and Menu relevant to his Wii. Perhaps 4.1U.

    1) Disc channel loading mainly and ease of use/updating.

    2) No method is better, just gives different benefits/drawbacks. With WODE you get the best of both worlds. Still I have both but tend to use the softmod for the USB function, haven't loaded a disc in months so my hardmod was a bit of a waste.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
