I loaned a softmodded wii to my buddy who lives out of town. He tells me the wiimotes will no longer sync with the console and he has tried all sorts of trouble shooting, even bought new first party controllers. I see the Bluetooth modules are selling for about $5 so I am thinking I will go visit him and swap it out. If the module isn't working wouldn't it prevent the thing from booting up though? He says it turns on and has video output and everything. Just can't get the controllers to sync. Any knowledge/ advice would be appreciated. I am going to go visit him and try to fix it on Friday.
