    I believe what you are looking for is on there. He is probably better off just getting another modchip though.

    Yeah, you might damage it but I don't know because I am not familiar with the Wiinja.

    It would be better if you just get a new modchip, it would save you from all the hardship.

    Softmodding is really confusing though, at least to me anyways.
