    i haven't opened a Wii yet [​IMG] but im just wondering what type of memory is installed on it?
    it is pin based soldered on? or just a simple ram chip?

    anyone know? i think i should pick up my tools from work and see if i can take it apart and check it myself as well, maybe i can play around with the actual hardware to make it have more memory.

    build a simple add-on chip....

    not sure if any of you have seen this before?

    lol made me laugh and makes me thinking what can we do to do it hardware wise

    there is already 1 mod for the GC memory
    http://www.modpulse.com/articles/console-m...emory-card-mod/
    but im really curious

    already have created this one
    http://www.modpulse.com/articles/console-m...wii-sensor-bar/ for the sesor bar and it was FUN

    lolll, that's a funny ''scam'' right there.
    ''Oh yeah! Do not delay to be purchasing this unit as it will not be evailable for long period.''
    ''Sorry Product Does Not Be Existing
    You be fooled by crankyHacker!''

    lmfao

    If you're gonna prank people, atleast try to get the grammar right.

    Its Not (Currently) possible. No has ever made an effort. Don't even try. The Wii has 512Mb Flash Memory. Drop it!

    would it be possible to piggy back the internal flash?

    i think someone did, twiizers? and apparently the wii can be installed with say 4gb hynix flash, but the wii will only ever see 512mb of it. there were some vague details on the issue behind it, if im correct

    yeah i was thinking of a piggy back idea or alter the processing chip on it itself.

    btw Zeek03

    if this is possible

    http://hackmii.com/2008/06/dual-nand-flash-hack/
    then, there could be a way.

    i mean seriously 12 months ago Softmod a wii was all " no way, can't be done , and look where is it today "

    Also on another note.

    i've see alot of people having problems with games not working with bootloader with memory card plugged in.

    this can be a reason why.

    and possible a backdoor posibility.... unless it has been blocked up but i don't think so

    Maybe you should try the hefty little tool called "HTML iso dumper" which ables you to dump discs directly on your pc via WiFi and through Internet Explorer or Firefox as a simple download... I've been using it forever now, and it never let me down [​IMG].

    p.s. one disc takes about 2 hours to download on your computer, at ~450kb/s.

    You can use a USB to dump the files. Just make sure that it is formatted to FAT32. I think the limit is 2GB though.

    it would be so great to have a 32gb flash drive instead of a 512mbs one, well at least 2gb, I'm so annoyed to always delete something to install something new.

    but after that.... someone would need to hack the 42 channels limit [​IMG]

    Well... here's a thought:

    Someone release a mod for cSM/Bootmii about making the wii able to read more than just 512MB.

    And since TT successed on modding the flash memory, I don't see why it won't work....

    or the new Forsakeen's System Menu Mod.

    once we get past the system menu and have a different one instead of the Wii one.
    it will perfect [​IMG]

    i've been setting up my Wii with the Dual NAND.

    have it open just about to solder it.
    wish me luck... btw.. forget who it was who says "Wally World" dead wii's, it works [​IMG]
    even with a missing NAND [​IMG]
