    can i use the Upgrade & Config Disc 1.4 beta to configure Wasabi Zero to enable/disable Wii Region Free, GC Audio Fix, Update blocker, etc. ?

    or it is just for v3 ?

    Smile Wasabi Zero Clip Fix

    K,guys,girls.....this is what i've done to correct the wii clip on the wasabi zero from being pulled loose when putting the wii back together....I also had the issue on the 2 that i've done since the wasabi zero came out...sucks when peeps gotta bring them back...

    After getting it on good and tight(don't be afraid to push quite hard,and apply even pressure starting in middle,work way around edges)...take the black tape off the small white drive cable so you extend it,and try the wii like that to make sure its working fine,red light flashes,green light comes on,games play(use a plastic pen cap to push power,etc,buttons to prevent shock)....when its workin....get a length of about a foot-foot and a half of electrical tape,roll it up tight so its a little higher than the solderless clip,put one one both sides(mm away so when squished,don't hit the clip).....now put a piece of electrical tape over the pieces of tape and the clip to keep them in place when flipping the drive over to reinstall....tighten the 2 back screws for the drive all the way...then tighten the front ones a little at a time,you can see the drive going down....don't go all the way,just about half way....before putting it all back together,try it now,with just the drive screwed on....if it works,slap it back together,if not,try again,but don't tighten it as much.....When putting it all back together,you should have to squeeze some spots slightly to match the holes up,as its a little thicker....and if you get drive noise(rubbing) when back together,tighten the drive screws just a little more....

    P.S I have fixed bent pins on the clips by using a small pin,and some good light,its doable...lol...but hurts the eyes...

    And yes the config disc works for this chip as well,to set all the options...

    Let me know if this works for you guys...

    Later guys...and happy modding...LOL




    slight edit..Red ...It is better to just disconnect the to cables then reconnect them after

    slight edit ...Blue...The wasabi zero Clip is designed to be a bit higher then the space in between the drive pcb and the rf metal shield...therefore when you put the modded drive back on ..the clip is actually squished tightly onto the rf shield. No chance of it moving

    Having said that...the post tape method is OK for DAMAGED LOOSE CLIPS cause by improper clip installation

    For Wasabi Clip



    Modchip-Depot.com

    I don't know why you guys are having problems installing the wasabi zero with clip.

    after 100's of installs only 1 failure...due to ones own stupidity....

    did not have the clip centered properly BEFORE PRESSING IT DOWN EVENLY.


    • When Installing..DO NOT APPLY DOWNWARD PRESSURE WHEN CENTERING THE CLIP ON THE WII CHIP.or you will screw it up.
    • Hold the clip evenly with both hands over the wii drive chip
    • gently with NO Downward pressure fit the clip by moving it forwards and towards you...and side to side... ( you will feel the fit....some take it off and do it several times till they are sure of the fitting)
    • When you are sure it's centered.... swing your thumb over the clip and GENTLY but Firmly Press down EVENLY.

    Thats all there is to it.

If you guys need any help let me know , by the way i'm running 3.4 U firmware on my wii and the zero is running strong with it, at least on the few games i've tried today. I posted a pic a few posts down .
    I just installed a Wasabi zero today had some proplems ,I have a GC2-GIA after I istalled it ,tested it and would only light red,set the 3rd jumper on and tried it with the 3rd jumper off and the same results put it back toghter and it will not run and the disk is stuck inside.So what do I do now.

    GC2-GIA is not a chipset type. Recheck what type of chipset you have

    Can't eject?

    Try removing the clip and then hitting eject.

    Wii Reset Redux

    I mentioned this in another thread but i thought he might be useful here as well. Since I had to do this a few times after trying to install wasabi zero. This will fix the forecast channel and the news channel when you get that news error. Also make sure to back up your miis to your wiimote.

    The Wii Reset
    1. Turn on Wii.
    2. Back up your game saves to SD card.
    3. Turn off Wiiconnect24 in your settings.
    4. Turn off Wii. Unplug Wii.
    5. Plug in Wii and turn on system.
    6. Make sure Wiiconnect24 is still off and format Wii memory.
    7. setup all your settings.
    8. Turn on Wiiconnect24 and check to make sure your news channel and forecast channel will again update and run as normal. Don?t forget you will have to set up your internet connection and time and date settings again.
    9. Turn off Wii. DO NOT UNPLUG.
    10. That should get the updating back to normal.
    11. If upon first insert of a disc, you get a read error. Unplug and plug back in the system. Everything should then be fine.
