    Newbie

    Hello all...

    Had a wii for the past couple of years now, and never really done anything with it, other than get it chipped within weeks of getting my paws on it...

    Everything been fine thus far, however getting more and more Error 001 codes on anything I can get my hands on...

    Question is,

    How can I tell whet mod chip is in the unit....?
    What is firmware..... and how does it work......?
    Does the mod chip need updating with the latest software....?

    I've tried brickblocker patching does it doesn't seem to work and the wii simply posts "Cannot read the disc" type text

    Any help would be most appreciated.

    Regards
    ACMA

    1. You got it chipped but you don't know what chip it has?
    2. Firmware is what the Wii uses to do everything lol
    3. Yes from time to time chips need to be updated, although i don't think all of them do.
    And last if you have homebrew try Gecko OS

    Not clever I know, but we live and learn...

    Of course, the point of this place is for people to share there knowledge with people who want to learn. Most of my knowledge rests in homebrew, and some modding

    Dark Mod

    You're a star, looks like I have got the Wiikey, I've managed to do a bit of digging around on the net, found the Beta 1.9g update, unpacked it, dropped the US iso onto a verb and run in the wii....

    Everything updated ok, game now running fine...

    Thanks again Dark Mod
