Ok i have read all the threads on here and I havent seen anyone that has done exactly this and gotten this result. Im looking to see opinions of whether i need a new wii, wiikey or a different mod. Here it is: 1. Bought Wii on launch day, or soon after. 2. Monday I ordered a WiiKey from www.modchip.ca (pretty sure it is genuine, compared to clones on Wiikey.cn website and it came with a holigram, best i can tell i have a V3 chip. 3. Installed Chip sautering wires that came in package to dvd drive sauter points, then sautered wires to WiiKey. I opted not to sauter WiiKey directly to motherboard, i figured to messy and tougher to remove that way. 4. Tested WiiKey with Zack and Wiki, the only game i had downloaded at the time. Worked flawless, turned on and off a bunch of times worked great. 5. Next game i downloaded was Super Mario Galaxy NTSC, put it in allowed the update (stupid!?!?!) then tried to play the game and got an error 001, standard message. 6. Panicked and tried Zack and Wiki, different error same problem, wouldnt load. 7. Tried the update to 1.9g off of www.wiikey.cn (stupid?!? i think not, everyone said it worked) 8. Got error message saying check connections. 9. Read on forum that if i eject the disc after It opens and closes (right terms?) drive first time let it do the work, pop disc back in, open then closed drive again, ejected disc, allowed actual update to occur. Tried that it worked!! The update did everything as usual. 10. I'd like to find and kill the guy that said that works. Im pretty sure that doing that is just tricking the software into allowing a bad flash!! 11. Excitedly popped Mario galaxy, Zack and wiki, update discs, config discs into wii one after the other and got nothing but unable to read errors, all of these discs would at a minimum detect before, now they will not detect. 12. Tested Excite truck, thank god it worked, as well as wii sports. 13. Opened the system and found wire #3 in this diagram had come unsautered. 14. Sautered that back on and checked all other connections, which were perfect. 15. Tried burned disc, didnt work. 16. Made report with modchip.ca and was told to try 1.9b Recovery Disc (for emergency use - see readme). 17. Tried that using different DVD-r's on different burners with different speeds, and cannot get it to do anything. (i think that maybe the 3.0u or 3.1u update (whichever one mario galaxy uses, has entirely disabled this disk from working, it doesnt detect, which apparently it doesnt need to, but after turning the wii on and off, using the reset switch doing everything i can think of to make the 1.9b recovery disc work, i cant make it do anything. 18. Tried burned discs, cant get them to read whatsoever. PLEASE HELP!!!
