    I got a Wii about 2-3 yrs ago from Vietnam with REALL cheap games, but I updated it and BAM!! I got shot with the error code. Well, we had a different Wii before that one, so we started to play that one instead.

    2-3 Years Later

    "google.com"
    "how to hack a wii"

    So then, I knew everything about the Wii. The Homebrew Channel, Priiloader, bootmii/bootmii2, Wad installing, USB Loader...
    I'm trying to fix my old/Korean Wii, but ran into those Mod Chips/WODEs.
    "Jeez, I'm only 12!"
    Those things costs a bunch of $$$
    So is there any way to fix error code 003 w/out Mod Chips/WODEs? I have also tried doing the RESET button while turning ON/OFF the Wii. No Priiloader.
    Help here?

    Million Thanks
    -PHI

    If there was a way around it, why do you think those guides would say you NEED a chip/wode?

    Well, that's some GREAT info, I hope someone can figure it out soon enough. Guess I'm going to use it as a brick for now [​IMG] . Wonder if it's stable enough to fit in a building [​IMG]

    As such, I'm afraid it is unfortunately even LESS useful than a brick [​IMG]

    mauifrog is a very trust worthy person.

    There is no way around it. One way or another, you will have to pay money to get it fixed.

    I have seen a 003 brick be fixed by him before.
