    I bought a wii off ebay, wanna hack it, but it's locked. Tried to format it, no dice. It's a 4.3U. Not sure which seller it was I bought it from, as I bought like 5 all at once. What to do...

    Go to parental controls on the wii setting. When it asks for your pin press "I forgot" and then it will ask you you question also press "I forgot". Then a screen will come up telling you your confirmation number. Write down the Confirmation number and go to http://wii.marcansoft.com/parental.psp and type in your confirmation number in the box then pick the date in your timezone (actually make sure you pick the date that your wii is set at!!!) and click "get reset code" A "Master Key" will then appear a split second later. Type the master key pin into the mast key box that will appear after the confirmation key notice will appear. This will deactivate the parental controls. Then you will be able to leave it disabled or create your own PIN
