    I'm mildly curious about this as well. I'm fairly sure it should be possible, but I haven't personally looked into it yet. I wonder if Nintendo will trade me my white Wii for a black one? =)

    If you follow XZXERO's guide, you should be set. Just DON'T install any of the cISOCORP stuff, this messed up my black wii and now I'm trying to fix it. Slowly but surely it's becoming untangled.

    Might be better to spend a few extra $ and get a kit that you know has good parts. Cheaper ones might be just that.. cheap. All the reviews on this one say the parts are as if Nintendo made them. You even get new black pads and stickers for the screws on the bottom. =)

    Is there anything special why black Wiis dont "like" cIOSCORP? I am recieving my black one MH3 bundle this or next week and was just wondering...

    On my white 4.1E its no problem with cIOSCORP at all....

    Please let me know.

    Thanks

    I'm not sure but I think my system is almost back to normal, but someone mentioned that the new drives can't read burned DVD's?? I've tried loading original JAP games and some US games through softchip and neogamma, both worked fine. (but I still CAN'T get any backups to work) I don't have an external HD to try the HD loading stuff, but I only thought that you would need cIOSCORP was to load backed up games directly through the disc channel. Perhaps if the new Wii drives can't read burned discs then there would be no point for the cISOCORP.
