First try with Modchip
Any advice appreciated
I have installed my wiikey 2 on my DMS wii. Mod went well and put it back together after checking it can play original games. Have the eject issue but get around that will a full shutdown. Plays all my original games ok.
I have a copy of PGA 09 burnt on x2 on verbatim using my notebook burner sony dvd DW - Q58 A (fully working never any issues)
The image was an nrg file full size that appeared to burn file and verfied with nero
I have on my wii 3.4E?????
I didnt think I needed homebrew to play, but the wii wont read the disc
The nrg file is quoted as a PAL (burn with IMg which I have also done!)
Anything Im missing for a newbie!!!!!!
ive just burnt the upgrade/config v1.2 disc and it loaded in the Wii eventually but it says no wiikey 2 found!!!
I guess i need to check the install?
Ok next update
now back open the disc loads the upgrade/config disc when I hold down the eject button
I lauch the gamecube screen and still get the error message no Wiikey 2 chip found
but now I see the red light stays on on the wiikey 2 chip
When I load a disc normally the red flashes then blue then off as in the video I saw for install so I thought it was ok
I bought a DMS wiikey 2 chip?
Any ideas , could they have sent me the wrong one
The clip has been installed ok I think as its flush to the board and I did even get a click on install
Clips arent reliable,they tend to move and the contacts get bent very easily.check it and see if maybe the pins are shorted....the best way is with a solder job.The lights should just flash twice and then go out on power up.
thanks for the advice Im sending my drive off to the company I bought the chip and they are going to install
Any advice re 3.4E i dont need homebrew or lower than 3.4 to run the images I burn?
I dont need homebrew as im only going to backup my games and play other images
it really depends on alotm of things, eg 3.4 is supposed to block fakesigned games: eg brickblocked, changed region, scrubbed etc.

Also if you want to get wads, like wiiware for free etc, then you will need homebrew channel...
Some info FYI
