    ok heres the deal,
    i want to soft mod a wii that was brought to me however the sd card slot is not functional.
    i have a drivekey chip however it is mine and i want to keep it but i can use it to somehow softmod this wii.

    the sd card slot accepts sd cards but there is not spring loading in it and the sd card just slides all the way in and drops back out if you turn it upside down.
    it will not recognize that a card has been inserted.

    i have a gamecube controller also so basically i am wondering if i put in the drivekey chip and then have it autoboot something that will allow me to load wad manager and read from a usb drive etc....

    any help or instructions on how to go about doing this would be great.

    thanks in advance.

    Autoboot disc, such as HBC would prolly work.

    There's at least one on here that should work. Keep searching, maybe look into patching it to run under a different IOS, if available.

    thanks for the reply but i am still unable to get this going.
    every disk i burn gives me the same unable to read disk errors when booting except a mario kart autoboot disk i have here...

    any more suggestions. i am about to call it quits as i don't know if this can actually be done...
    oh sorry it is also 3.4u system menu not 3.2 as i thought earlier.

    Unmodified 3.4 can't autoboot homebrew. The IOS50 is fixed. You're best bet is to get the SD card slot fixed.

    thanks techboy.
    i was really waiting for a response like that.
    i was thinking that i was just not capable of doing it myself.

    much appreciated.
