    Hi,

    I want to give something back to the community i dont want to give to someone that will fix and sell it on, i would rather give to someone that is active in the community that needs a dev machine without the fear of busting there own wii .

    i have a faulty PAL Wii i bought , i only bought it to test out Softmodding on it before i went in and modded my sons wii he uses.(check my old posts on here)
    i bought it knowing it had a tempermental drive in it, so i have never attempted to fix this so i assume this is still an issue. Anyways i installed homebrew channel, and CFG loader
    as per Modmii,and made a nand backup so have the keys on another laptop if they are needed, i dont have the sd card anymore that was in the Wii (not sure if thats a problem)
    Anycase, last time i tried to turn it on it turns on fine, but sometimes the system menu screen there is a crackling sound, turn if off and on a few times then it will go to the system
    menu fine and i was loading games via cfg loader. Priloader was installed as well if it makes any difference. The System Menu is on 4.1
    Was just wondering if anyone on here has any use for it, i am not looking to sell.

    Below is what the Serial number is and Details if anyuse.

    Please dont PM me, just post in here, and i guess the more senior members know who is more deserving :)





    Serial number: LEH201298688
    The Wii has a RVL-001(EUR) model number and is produced for the European market. The copyright year is 2006.
    DVD drive and chipset features


    Your drive most likely has the following chipset:
    • There is a 50% chance the chipset is GC2-D2E.
    • And there is also a 25% chance the chipset is GC2-D2C2 (v2) and the drive has the new metal clip.
    • Lastly, a 25% chance the chipset is GC2-D2C (v1).

    I'd probably find some use out of it trying to get older apps running, but I think some one else could make better use of it than I.

    Like someone in the pal region. Sounds like a good deal. Just for those looking are you giving it away or just on the cheap? Should run bootmii as boot2 if not already installed.

    I am giving it away..i should cover postage as it wont be too much i dont think.......PAL Region would be preferable,

    *thinking* Dunno yet, but maybe since I'm in the pal region, I'm a last resort though. Why not reverse the soft mod and take it to EBgames/Gamestop ?

    A spare wii for experiments is always welcome.
    It doesn't have to be for free, and it seems more than natural that who gets it pays the shipping costs as well.

    Crap, for the first time ever I wish I lived in the UK. I want a new Wii (or rather, and old Wii) for testing some brick recovery options for BLIND. My current Wii has bootmii as boot2, but I get tired of constantly making/restoring NAND backups for it.

    Joostin,

    Let me see how much it would cost to send the usa(will find out tommorow), i doubt it would be too much, then once you bust it properly you can pass it on to someone else :)

    Lol, it's fine. Shipping would probably be like $30 or something. It's very nice of you to offer though. :)

    I bricked my Wii while trying to apply Hijill's patches to the HackMii installer (the RemoveAntiHaxx() patches work there, you just have to find the right memory locations), and now I can't do any more testing. Your donation would go towards further development of HBC patches if you'd send it to me, but you're better off sending it to anyone working on DML, as that's the only interesting Wii project atm.

    I think this would be very beneficial to a lot of people hm...My first thought was XFlak but that's my own opinion could Crediar/OverJoy/obcd or jskwo; these are the main dev's I talk to not cause of lack of apps but cause I use their stuff more then anyone's.

    I'm not forgetting about you JoostinOnline just you already made your comment ;)

    HBC patches?? Like future official releases or just modifications?

    EDIT: Just did a quick google search and only the second link I could find had anything to do aboot this. Though the concept is nice and I support it; I think the best thing to do is go aboot using an AIO app like PostLoader3 eh????

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    I'll gladly take it of your hands :)
    Not sure what I would be able to contribute by using it though, but it would be lovely to have something to play around with without worrying about bricking my own Wii :)

    I suggest you post this in the DML thread.
    It really is the most interesting project right now.

    Yes. DML is one of the most attractive projects out there. +1 on that

    But it seems that right now, i'm the only one doing stuff there. And i don't need a 2nd Wii, i don't know how i should brick my Wii with DML and i can test everything on mine. If BootMii boot2 can be installed on this Wii, it would be interesting for some other DML dev who does not have a BootMii boot2 Wii.

    If you are still planning on giving it out, I'd love to take it. It would be nice to have a testbox-wii for testing new (and dangerous) stuff.
