    Is there anyone tried to use a modchip (EX:Wiikey Fusion ) to hack 4.3 virgin Wii ?

    According to the Wiikey Fusion information, we can load game (ISO file) to its
    SD card reader.

    If a 4.3 (no matter J/U/E/K) virgin Wii is compatible with this kind of SD card reader ,
    suppose we can load SSBB or LEGO Indiana Jones ISO file into the reader then
    apply the exploit.

    Is this idea OK ?

    If your wii have a D3-2 drive (my case) or D3 your unique solution is a USB Loaders to play a backups. You not able to play GC backups with USB/SD, only Wii backups.


    If your wii have a other drives (EX: D2C) you made install all of modchips available on the market.


    I am waiting my friend to use the Mauifrog or WiiCrazy guide to hack my wii or i will be paid U$99 for a original Lego Indiana Jones game on my country (Super Smash Bros. Brawl in Brazil costs U$120 same as Mario Kart). [​IMG]

    That won't work on Japanese or Korean Wiis. System Menu 4.2 contains an additional region check (it checks the last character of the title ID).

    D3 drives are capable of playing burned discs. It's D3-2 and D4 drives that cannot.

    Correct my post. If your wii not have same drives quoted, you may able to play backups from a DVD burned discs. If no, buy a SD Card, USB Flash Drive or an external HDD and install your games with WBFS Manager 3.0, and use a Smash Stack or Indiana Pwns Exploit to install a USB Loader and NeoGamma.

    As long as you use a same-region game (so if you have a PAL Wii you can't use SmashStack, as it only works on NTSC-U SSBB, nor you can use a NTSC-U Indiana Jones, because of the added region-checks of 4.2) you can do it without problems.

    The ISO's signature would be broken, so the Wii will reject it.

    So the existing smashstack savegame is region U, it was compiled with the NTSC-U version game to hack the U region Wii's.
    Than why would it not be possible to do the exact same thing with a PAL-E version?

    The only difference is the region, so if someone with a PAL system would know how to do that, it should be possible with SSBB.
    (i know a european hacker, so he only needs to know how they build smashstack for U region, so he can do the same with the E region

    people have tried converting smashstack for E region and it would not work. There is more differences to the disc than just the region.

    For instance, SSBB-U can not autoboot at all, it will just give an error saying to insert the SSBB disc. But SSBB-E is able to be autobooted and does not give any errors at all.

    comex couldn't probably find the same exploit in the E version, that's why it won't work.

    Nintendo obviously changed some code around, between the two versions. It might either require further research (but comex's a pretty skilled fella, so I doubt it) or just be impossible on the EU version.

    Ok so here goes I have messaged the site drivekey.co.uk and they have told me that as I am on the 4.3 update I cannot play different region games only the pal games as I am In the uk so all the update does is stops the different region games so it is completely safe as long as you play your own region of game also for people who might be wondering he also told me to use the 16x discs for the best performance
