Ok, I have a Jap Wii, it's semi-bricked, so I do not know what's the firmware nor what's my modchip...... Yea, so I have SS:BB (US) burned on a DVD DL, the iso is patched so didn't need to use Generic patcher or WBB, but when I put the disc in, it doesn't read. What do I do now? I have SMG (Jap) but I'm afraid to unbrick my wii with it cos some ppl claim that back-ups don't work after that etc. + I have no idea what my modchip is and ppl say I have to update my modchip (if it's wiikey) to 1.9b first before using SMG. Well, I remembered trying that but it failed. So, I wanna know: 1. Is it possible for me to just update with SMG (Jap) without updating the chip whatsoever? 2. Will the chip stop working after updating with SMG? 3. After updating with SMG will SS:BB be read by the Wii drive finally? 4. Do I still need SS:BB (Jap ver.) to update before using SS:BB (US)? Argh....so much problems. Someone please help, I know if I don't do anything, when Disaster: Day Of Crisis arrives, I'm going to go nuts.
