Ok here is how it goes. First and foremost its the first Wii it ever came out here in Greece at least. The Model is an RVL-001. I had it hacked with the old firmware 3.2 I think? Or maybe a previous one and I remember I read in a gaming forum about firmware 4 and how great the menus looked. I do not remember what I did but I remember that after I followed some steps and either installed a bad wad or did it the wrong way my Wii got bricked. The only thing I see is a black screen and I used to head the drive run. Yeap used to because.. Well I decided to unbrick it installing a modchip, which went wrong again. Taking it apart was kind of hard but installing the modchip killed my Wii.. well I killed it but thats not the point. It was a presoldered wiikey 2 clip. How you mess up installing a push on a hip Wiikey 2? Well I ordered from the guys I bought that for my version and they sent it to me but I did not know the clip had switches. On their site the clip had no switches but as it seems they sent me another kind of clip that worked with all consoles and depending what you had you used 4 little switches. Well installed it wrong and it did not work so I went and looked all over the net and found the slip needed the switches to have the right combination. Too bad though that after taking it off once and putting the switches as they should be not only broke one of the pins of the clip but also seens I guess I was not calm ripped a bit of the dvd wii tape and killed my dvd drive. Long story short: -My wii is bricked with a black screen. -I did not know back then about software like priiloader. -It has no dvd drive. -Installing priiloader is a MUST (well thats more of a lesson I guess) So why I bother all you good people with these stuff? I found on a random site today, while looking if a black Wii can play GC games with just a software modification, that its possible to actually unbrick it without a dvd copy of the Nintendo Wii Backup Disc software but just having it put inside the sd! What I want to ask is: -Is it possible to install the Nintendo Wii Backup Disc on a SD card? -The only gamecube control I have is a wireless one. Is that ok or will it break after moding it? -Does the Wii menu needs a modchip installed or I can jsut mod my GC controller first see if the menu comes up and then buy a modchip? -Which modchip would work with a dvd-less wii? (PS I do not want to buy a new drive.) Thank you everyone for any kind of support and remember! Installing priiloader is a MUST if you want to mess with your Wii >.
