    There are indications on the board and the hollywood chip in particular to see which ones work and which ones won't.
    The quickest thing is that all rev20 and higher board do not work. So only Rev01 boards have success but even then not all of them
    Then you need to look at the date code on the hollywood chip. I have not found the switch to boot1c yet, but I know that date code 0830 does not work anymore and datecode 0810 does work. So there is still a gray area to be filled in.

    I added more info on identifying boot1b in the first post of this thread. Please submit the datecode of any wii that has a vulnerable boot1 or not that is inbetween 0811 and 0830 of the hollywood date code . I will then modify the first post of this thread so we can find out the switch

    Formatter

    Just wondering. I have a bricked Wii here which has 1c and no way of fixing it due to not having the keys.

    However, it does 'work' with SaveMii(Frii). 4.2EUR and it also starts autoboot discs that way.
    It can even start the HBC 0.6 ISO disc and installs HBC. Unfortunately no way to get to the HBC itself since it's bricked and can't get past the (custom, so probably the reason of the brick) Health Screen.

    So, I was thinking, since it can start the HBC ISO, it must be possible to have it automatically start another custom disc. In this case a disc which has the Formatter (first page) elf and wads dir on it.

    Only thing is, how do I go about to create such an autoboot iso (I want it to run formatter.elf (rename to boot.elf or even convert to boot.dol, that part is no problem) and start formatting the Wii. I've tried to use (open) the hbc (haxx) iso as a template with a number of tools, but they all say it's not a valid wii (or even gc) iso.

    Does anyone know how I can create such an iso, or better, have a link for an already existing iso which accomplished the same (runs the formatter app).

    Thanks a million !!

    I would not recommend to use the formatter tool like this. However the only thing you need is a bootmii CD. No more no less. And those exits already on the net.
    Try to see if you can get a wad manager to run (or try the bluetooth module first, you never know if that one is broken) and install the correct sysmenu. There is enough info in this forum about these type of bricks

    Do you have any soldering experience? If not than do not start, this is not an easy task to perform if you have no experience in soldering. And the 'brackets' are the legs of the nand chip. You need to solder the wires to those

    Ok, will try tonight. I already tried the various recovery discs out there and they don't load at all, since HBC iso did work I figured I had to make one myself

    just an update.

    console i was talking about earlier is now repaired, hollywood did infact need reflowing.

    Ive also had another one like this since and same results.

    Its likely because im buying bottom of the barrel wii's off ebay that ive managed to get 2, but everything is up and running.

    next up is wii remotes.

    also, if anyone in the uk needs repair work i do take most work on.
