a co-worker sold me his modchipped Wii (atmega8l) with the HBC installed. he suggested i upgrade the chip to OpenWii 2.4 - i burned the installer disc and was able to upgrade the chip firmware. i burned a disc of 804 SNES titles which the Wii was able to see. i purchased the Wii Fit and it upgraded to 3.3U (not sure which version). i then followed several tutorials on another forum to install DVDX and MPlayer, downgrade to 3.2U, and install Starfall as well as install several different IOS/cIOS versions. the result is as follows: i am now downgraded to 3.2U using ARC my SNES 804 rom and OpenWii 2.4 discs are no longer readable - disc not read error when attempting to open them i can only start backed up games using Gecko OS i can run HBC i can install WAD files in an attempt to straighten out any "bad" cIOS/IOS files, i upgraded to 3.4U and then downgraded to 3.2U after that, Wii Connect 24 no longer works but i am able to use the Internet Channel and Homebrew Browser - the internet connection (USB-ethernet adapter) works fine. i do not have a retail version of Twilight so i have not tried to do a factory reset to virgin the Wii... i really like the HBC and have several great C64 games up and running. i am surprised at how much fun i am having with the Wii - my 7 year old REALLY loves it and thinks i'm the coolest dad ever any help is welcome and needed.
