I have succesfully hacked a friends wii, but it looks like it has one of the D3-2 dvd drives in it. I know he could use a usb loader. But the question is, will any of the modchips out there, make it possible to load a backup from the disc drive? Or will he need to replace the drive. Just to guide him in how to proceed.
The only hardmod solution to run games on D3-2 is WODE but even that uses a HDD, it's due out in a few days.
Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
