    My Korean WII 3.3 was bricked because of wrong region update.

    I was just wondering if replacing its motherboard would solve my problem!!! New Motherboard would have a new Nand chip.

    I got some site which sells WII motherboard. I got it in eBay as well as some Chinese whole-seller around 65-70 US $...

    Is it possible???

    mmm can you provide a link to the product you are thinking of purchasing to replace your motherboard?
    You might be confusing the DVD Drive with the motherboard
