Hello all, I have a small experience I'd like to conduct. Someone on another forum (Wiinewz) suggested that the new Wii firmware checks GameCube discheaders. If it does not start with G (GameCube game), P (promotional) or D (demo), the disk doesn't load. He says that's why chip config disks don't work anymore: they use custom letters (WiiKey uses W, WiiFree uses Y, etc.) So I thought of a simple, harmless experiment I'd like to conduct myself, but can't for various reasons (ok, not various, I just won't be at home for several days). I need someone with a Wii upgraded to 3.0, a WiiKey, a DVD burner and a little bit of computer knowledge to do the following: 1. Grab the 1.2 config disk from WiiKey official site (wiikey.cn, section Resources) 2. Decompress the archive somewhere. 3. Go into \bootdisc subdirectory and open gbi.hdr.xyz (xyz being either jap, pal or us, depending on your Wii's region) with an hex editor 4. Change the first letter (which should be W) to G. 5. Save and close the hex editor. Now follow the normal process of creating a config disk, and put it in your Wii. If it works, then it confirms that the new firmware only checks the first letter of the disk's header! If someone could do this and post the results here, that would be awesome. If no one volunteers (don't see why, it's not like this could brick your Wii or anything ^^), I'll do it myself, but that won't be 'till next week or so.
