Plz plz plz help me out..

I have spent many days on the net, searching for what could help me fix my wii problem, have read about ios anf cios etc, but still doesnt understand what to do...

a couple of years ago, I bought a wii, with wiikey. A few months later, my brother decided to buy one too, and I think I remember that there was a "change" in wiis, and that he got a different chip than me?

Anyway, I recently bought wiifit, and of course I upgraded (without knowing the consequenses)
After hours of trying and failing, I acually managed to downgrade it, followed some guide, and all my games are working fine.

My brother have bought wiifit too now, and as wise as I have become I prevented him from alowing the wii to update(he didnt have homebrew channel either)

We doesnt live in the same city, and I have by telephone support guided him through installing homebrew channel, and cios downgrader-so that he know has version 3.2e (he had 2 something)
But every game he tries to start, goes black...the games are super smash bros, mario kart, raving rabbits, familiski and the wiifit itself...


Please help me understand what Im doing wrong, and tell me what I can do to make it work..
Im tempted to let wiifit upgrade(I have installed dvd update block with starfall), and than try to downgrade, since it worked for me..

I dont know which chip he has, but Im sure he hasnt upgraded it since he got it..
could that cause the black screen?
Is there a program that can run, so I can get to know which chip he has? (so I can update it for him)

I will be extremly thankful for any help, as it feels my head is about to explode soon...

He might need to update his chip, before you do any crazy shit with IOS's find out the type installed and see if there's an ISO of a config disc for it, I know my friends wiikey has one and he was told it required an update flash before it would run properly and we've yet to have a problem at his house with it.

Well might wanna listen to the guy above first, since i'm not too sure about modchips, but aren't you supposed to run ios downgrader along with cios downgrader? If you just downgraded the firmware without the ios getting downgraded wouldn't that cause some problems?

I have upgraded the software with the downgrader.. but I made him run ios downgrader too...
I thought perhaps there was missing some ios, since he had an old software, 2..2 or something...

Is there an way I can find out which chip he has, without making him open the wii?

    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
