    Does anybody here have a wii with 4.2U installed, a drivekey modchip, an unmodified copy of US SSBB (original or backup doesn't matter), and a gamecube controller (and some way to push all 4 d-pad buttons)?

    If you have all this, I have a little test for you. I won't post the exact test here (I want to keep it a surprise, especially if it works).

    If you want to perform this test, please pm me for the details, or post here, and I'll try to pm you.
    Make sure to have some sort of recovery option installed, such as bootmii / preloader, as the test messes with IOS70.

    couldnt you just use the preloader or startpatch hack to get access to the recovery menu?

    or is this test for those with minimal or no hacks?

    Yes, this test is for those without preloader or startpatch hacks enabled.
    However, if somebody wants to test, but has hacks enabled, they can be disabled during the test.

    Yeah there would be no difference between turning off the diagnostic disc check and the DPad up instead of all 4 for the recovery menu and a normal Wii.

    This is stacksmash, you can run Loadmii from it which lets you do huge shit from the recovery menu, if you can get it to load. Drivekey works according to xzero, so yeah, it removes the diagnostic disc check, so you'd be fine with just it and Savemiifrii.

    If drivekey can remove the check, that would mean you could remove it without resigning the disc. That would be pretty huge for people with korean Wiis that were changed to USA. (crap that Nintendo removed region-freeing from modchips or it could also help PAL users)

    first i got all this korean wii when one of my friends (have a video games company) he imported this consoles from china i think [​IMG]
    then we started to update it using some sort of safe updater then we get this damn error.
    i hope that we can do it soon, i'm ready to test this if i got some info about this test.
    i hope that we can find any working solution for this error soon [​IMG]

    If this worked pls let me know also, i would order this chip right away, this would be the hope for fixing 003 error wii. I went to there site and i saw theres autoboot config option. I thought that drivekeys are those hot chicks on their site. [​IMG]

    If you modify the ssbb us version to autoboot, it wouldnt work, it shows insert game disc error. but if the drivekey can autoboot the ssbb without modifying the game, then we have a chance to run the exploit code. The other solution for this is to make a pal hack version for the ssbb, because autoboot ssbb pal works.

    hacking the iso to autoboot would be a much better project, and better for the masses, ofcourse im jusst being biased!!!! [​IMG]
