    It's detecting the backup. This is shown by the fact that the original boots just fine on a modded Wii.

    No it isn't. The RAM of the drive cannot be read. The SMG reads the media type of the disc, a command that was not patched by most modchips. (AFAIK)

    At least, that's what I gathered from the OpenWii forums. (OpenWii supports SMG - the first Open-source chip to do so)

    well what I understood is that it had something to do with the timing of the patching of the ram or whatnot.. That it detects the media but then the modchip changes that value in the ram? 's what I understood.
    Anyone got a link somewhere with exact details? I'm quite interested in what it actually is that was wrong

    Is there any chance that the "protection" isn't actually protection and just a problem caused by the SMG release being a "demo" disk??

    there's no way this kind of check will be useful for a demo disk. Try to tell how it could be...
