    Can't play original dead space extraction on version 4.2E

    Hi,

    one of the things that can brick your wii is update from a disk.

    Well, i have a softmodded wii, version 4.2 E and when i put the original disk of the game "dead space extraction" in, the wii ask for an update.

    I didn't, but now i can't play the game... i find it strange it asks for an update since i have version 4.2 E.

    Other games play just fine.

    I hope somebody can help me.

    Thanx a lot!

    Just block disk update on your wii.

    Thanks a lot, but your answer creates a new problem

    You can block disk update with preloader, but i can't get it installed.

    While hitting + for installing preloader I receive the message: Got Root! Ticket could not be found, aborting mission

    What did i do: first: downloaded this Priiloader v0[1].2 (4.2E), with in it boot.dol wich i placed in root/apps/priiloader(/boot.dol) and hacks.ini which i placed in the root.

    Then i received the message Got root...

    I tried one other thing by renaming the boot.dol file and name another file to boot.dol ... (i read it somewhere), but the same error occured.

    Maybe one last thing that could be wrong, i changed to ios70 with DOP IOS.

    I hope someone can see what i did wrong and what i can do to block my disk updates.

    Thanks.

    Run dop-ios-mod
    Install ios36 with patches
    Then install priiloader 0.3b
    Use ios36 to install, I believe you press A.

    I just wanted to say that since reading and replying to this regarding installing a custom theme for my Wii I went ahead and done it anyway a few days ago. The reason for this is that I watched a tutorial on how to do it on YouTube and the maker of the video said that it would not remove my priiloader in the process. So I bit the bullet and installed the DarkWii theme on my 4.2e Wii. My Priiloader is still intact so I'm not sure what the warning was about?

    Could it be that the newer theme installers carry much less risk (I was told that) and also have the ability to keep your Priiloader. I just wanted to say this, because my Wii looks a hell of a lot nicer now I've done it

    Hi, I'm new to the forum and Wii generally. Bought a modded Wii last week and managed to brick it within 3 days due to my own ignorance of the do's and don'ts that have been listed in this thread. As I finally learned, mine was region-changed Korean Wii with a 4.0e system menu and in my attempt to try what else I could do with the unit, I actually ran the update and ended up with a 003 error. Again, I found out that as of today, there's no solution to fix this yet. Well, the unit's back in the shop awaiting for the technical guys to fix it.

    I bought a new one out of sheer frustration and the fact that my kids were begging me to get the bricked unit fixed. This is also a region-changed Korean Wii with a 4.1u system menu and I saw (I'm at work now with no access to the unit) a couple of new things in this one like the HBC and Internet channel. A few questions came to mind and I hope that the gurus and moderators here can help guide me to the right source of information, please. Here goes:

    1. With those 2 channels installed in my new unit, can I use my modded Wii to browse the internet then? I'm completely paranoid to even start the channel in case similar experience that I had with my 1st unit recurs.
    2. What about online gaming? This is more of a wish list in case the kids or even I, thought of doing so.
    3. What can I do with Homebrew channel? All I understand from what I've read so far, was that it allows me to install other platform's application likes SNES, GC, etc and use them on Wii. Besides this, I'm stumped - largely the information is a bit here and there, at least from what I've seen so far. Maybe you can point me to the right reading source.
    4. Besides upgrading, downgrading, installing or removing certain critical files, can I brick a Wii if I were to browse the Internet or play games online?

    Thanks a lot. I hope it's not too much of a trouble to help me on this one.

    Your wii should be safe to browse the net, play games online, ect.
    Your wii is Korean- region changed. A 4.2+ update will brick it, so don't update the wii.

    Three things you should do.

    1- do the 3.1-4.1 softmod guide linked below.
    2- In priiloader, disable disk update, and disable online updates
    3- Install cios70, linked in post #1 of this thread

    Ios70 of the 4.2 update is responsible for the 003 brick. Cios70 should counter this brick if you accidentally managed to update to 4.2. This should work, but you should not test it, just stay at 4.1 and never update from disk or online again.

    Hope that makes sense.

    Hi mauifrog,

    Thanks for the reply. Can you help me with these followup questions then?

    1- do the 3.1-4.1 softmod guide linked below.
    Q: What will I achieve by doing this?

    2- In priiloader, disable disk update, and disable online updates
    Q: I understand the purpose of doing so but how do I know whether I have priiloader installed and where is it normally located?
