Ah, disregard... You said Metroid Prime and I read Metroid: Other M. Sorry.
does anyone else have a solution that they can provide?
Watch the bumping please. Someone will get back to you when they are available.
Before you can continue with anything, we need to verify you can autoboot a game. You need to install your Wiikey into a different Wii and enable the autoboot game feature and also make sure the block disc updates feature is disabled. Once the modchip is programmed you need to verify that you're able to autoboot a game. This could be done with any in region game as long as it's a known working one. If the game loads and has SM 3.1+ your SM will be updated and the Wii should be unbricked. I recommend using an official game as most USB loaders remove the update partition when storing it as an iso on your HDD. (SMG 2 is fine so long as it still has the update partition.)
Actually, now that i think about it, the block disc updates should be disabled from the WiiKey because that was the reason why the Wii became bricked in the first place... from accepting an update from another region game

DriveKey Solderless Wii Mod Chip US$34.95
Yes, I realize this however the autoboot feature is what has to be enabled. If you're going to go through the trouble of installing the modchip in a different console, you should double check that setting as well (Dot your i's and cross your t's). You don't want to have to swap it out a second time.Actually, now that i think about it, the block disc updates should be disabled from the WiiKey because that was the reason why the Wii became bricked in the first place... from accepting an update from another region game
Side note, i have no experience with self-soldering. this Wii was modded by a company called GModz. Would i have to go back and have them take out the WiiKey for me, or can i do it myself for free?
Try patching SMG 2 with Wii Bootme see if that works before you go the route of buying a new modchip but yes, you would have to remove the Wiikey first.
