Hello all so my friend traded a broke wii remote for a "bricked wii" good trade right well when I went and turned it on it had an error 003 and unauthorized device has been detected. So I tried to check if preloader works but nothing then i tried the gc bube controller check nothing. So then I asked if his friend has a modchip installed on it but he said he softmodded it. So I am guessing after softmodding it he updated his wii there fore screwing it up. If I am incorrect please correct me and tell me how to get out of this situation thanks .
I believe there is more than one guide for error 003 brick fix. I think that is a korean wii brick right? Try and search.
