OK, I recently ordered a yowii flashed with YAOSM but I have a few questions before it's time to install and use it.

1. How do you burn wii isos? I have nero 8 and have noticed that the isos have multiple parts and file extensions such as .r00. How do I deal with these?

2. I have a 100 spindle of 16x Compusa dvd-rs, but I haven't heard if they are either good or bad for the wii. should they be fine?

3. lastly I was wondering if it's possible to de-solder a modchip, if I want to update it with a flasher or to update it while it's still in there.

Thank you for your time.

1) extract the rar files with software like winrar (www.rarsoft.com). nero 8 works fine to burn the iso files once extracted from the rars, i use nero 8 pretty much exclusively and haven't had any problems thus far.

2) nobody can really answer that, seems as though everybodies wii likes different types of media... worst case scenario is it doesn't like them. just burn the images like normal and see if they work

3) it IS possible, however i'd recommend buying an IC socket and putting the chip in that instead of soldering the chip directly. of course i believe the YAOSM dev is working on dvd upgradability which would make it so you don't need to take it in and out of the wii.

A Wii ISO is just a normal .ISO file, burn it with Nero. A downloaded ISO is often in archived format. Just uncompress it with WinRar for example.
as I understand it the yowii is supplied with a programmer and an external cable. That means you can reprogram the chip that way, there is no need to desolder it

    they seem to be getting worse

    Yeah it seems to have been a pretty rough few weeks/months for spam. Sadly I don't have access to or insight into why/how it's getting past the spam prevention measures we have in place :(
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Disgruntled banned members probably writing script batches
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Eh I don't think it's that, the content of the spam isn't all that different than what we've been seeing for the past like... decade. I'd imagine if it was a disgruntled banned member then the content would be different, not crypto recovery and illuminati shaman scams lmfao
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Never know
  • AdenTheThird @ AdenTheThird:
    Catboy brought up the idea of a new staff tier specifically for anti-spam to combat the issue, as several of us have noticed it getting worse with no apparent changes to prevent it. Any chance of this happening, or at least introducing a limit to the number of threads new users can post? @Sicklyboy

  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    That can go bad say they make the new staff group and then start blaming that specific member for not keeping up with spam removal
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    @AdenTheThird, wish it wasn't the case but I unfortunately have no insight into that nor the ability to implement/change anything like that

    If anything normal mods should just be brought back
  • AdenTheThird @ AdenTheThird:
    A limit on how many threads new users can start should be put in place. Simple, non-intrusive, gives mods plenty of time to respond to spam before they can do it again.

    It's just becoming more and more of an issue and I don't see it stopping until preventative measures are taken.
