    Softmod a Wii with a boken disk drive

    Hi

    I recently softmodded a Wii using the Bathaxx technique, clearly I had to use the Lego Batman disk to acheive this.

    My other Wii had a damamged cd drive - it wont read from disk - Is it possible to softmod a Wii with a broken cd drive ?

    Thanks

    best bet is to buy a triwing screwdriver on ebay and swap cd drives to hack your wii since you have 2 then swap back

    Hi

    Yeah could do the drive swap - I did think of this. Seeing as the Wii is not on 4.3, i dont think its worth the effort to swap them around.

    Thanks

    If it is not 4.3, and was not at the time of your previous post, then the use of a hack via the drive was irrelevant. Now it is even more irrelevant, as a new method for 4.3 has been created.

    All of this info is covered in the "softmod any wii" guide.

    Hi Thanks, yes its deffo earlier than 4.3 (not quite sure, as have not fired it up for some time because of the broken drive)

    I have looked over the "softmod any wii" guide, cant seem to see the new method - could you point me in the right direction ?

    Thanks

    It is chapter 1 part 1. In the spoiler that says "3.0-4.2u/e/j/k wiis- BannerBomb"
    New method is for 4.3 and is in the spoiler that says"4.3-LetterBomb- No Game Disc Required"

    HI

    Many thanks for that....

    Just to be clear is "4.3-LetterBomb- No Game Disc Required" only for 4.3 or is it 4.3 and earlier ?

    THANK YOU !
