In my attempt to collect different version of wii i bought myself a 003 korean wii, and since i know i can be fixable with the certian requirements or can be useful for parts especaially the drive i took may chances. 1. so i soldered my modchip w/ autooot enable 2. did the savemiifii and the 4.2 on the bottom screen apear 3. insert a game and waited for it to load and black screen... in my curiosity i tried it on my other wii one which is fully softmod and did the same thing. fustrated enough i setup my 3 wii with different settings 1st jap wii to 4.2u wii fully softmoded/bootmii as boot 2/preloader/CIOS 249/CIOS222/DARKCORP 2nd pal wii to 4.2u almost virgin/bootmii as boot 2/CIOS249 3rd us wii to 3.2u almost virgin/bootmii as boot 2/CIOS249 and in all the three wii's all loads in a black screen. i also tried changing modhips like Wiikey updated to 1.9s/ Argon/ D2Pro 9 wires, and different disc Surprisingly enough when i enable the option on preloader to enter recovery menu automatically or just the left button it autoboots the game fine, but when i manually use a GC controller it fails. BTW i used an original GC controller and a 3rd party dancepad. any ideas why it loads to a black screen on all wii's i've tried. if i remember correctly i can load via saveemiifii in the past when i was very newb in the wii and heard about this when it first came out and tried it on my wii.
