Came across a special case the other day. Guy had a wii where the SD and USB slots don't work. A partial lemon from the looks of it. And yes, I'm certain. Disc play fine though. Looked around the forums quite a bit, and everything seems to point to requiring an SD card to apply any of the softmod hacks. What I need is a disc and/or network only method. Any chance I overlooked this sort of thing? If not, what are the chances/possibilities of this happening? Thanks in advance for the thoughtful and helpful responses.
