So i have 2 Wiis in my family. My used to be virgin 3.2U stock Wii that i bought a few years ago, and my brothers 3.2U cIOS Wii that i bought him used for playing back ups we had. Well he went off to school and took his Wii so i decided to softmod my Wii to get the homebrew channel and play the backups we have. I read up a little about the new mods and stuff last night and decided to give it a shot. The thing i hated about my brothers Wii was that we werent able to play Rockband because of issues with the cIOS(to my understanding) and i read up on 4.0U with bannerbomb and hearing people being able to have the best of both worlds basically. And being able to use a much bigger SD card was a big plus. And this is how it went- Day 1 1. Updated to 4.0U with the official updater 2. Downloaded bannerbomb and followed instruction 3. Installed HBC, DVDx, BootMii 4. Tried to Get Backup Loader 0.3 to work but couldnt 5. Tried other homebrew out and worked fine. 6. Had to go to bed for work the next day. Day 2 7. Read up on why Backup Loader couldnt work and thought about downgrading to 3.2U and installing cIOS then reupdating 8. Read http://gbatemp.net/index.php?s=&showto...t&p=1993806 9. I was able to get it working!! 10. I was playing Excite Bots when all of a sudden the Wii shut off in the middle of a race. 11. Physically grabbed the Wii and noticed it was hot. 12. I let it cool down and was able to play again. 13. Decided to back up Wii using BootMii 14. Next few hours were spent figuring out why the Wii would shut off, more so during game play 15. Noticed the fan not working. 16. Searched online and couldnt find anything about repairs or trouble shooting the fan So now i come to you guys, what made my fan stop working? Caused by the update? or softmods? lmk pls!! thanks!! I read somewhere to just buy a stand with a fan. But i like where my Wii is set up in my entertainment system and its lying flat.
