    Hey guys!

    My lil sis wanted to play mario party 9 which contained a update. She did the update because she couldnt play if she didnt. (not that she could when she did the update..). The error that I am getting is error 001 or something. Some games do still work but with some it says cant read the disk. I searched around on the internet and maybe its the chip I need to update. So I opened up my wii and saw the chip. I dont know what kind of chip it is but I bought the wii in 2007/8 from someone and it was already hardmodded. I hope that someone can help me. I am thinking of wiikey 1?

    And you ALWAYS will get an error. Wii units strictly forbid hardmodding. Penalties aren't worth it if you like your toy.

    Softmodding is the way to go, however in some instances you do have to remove the chip.

    However as it is not working, google modmii, you will need an SD card, pc and internet connection. Run the program on your pc, Answer the questions follow the guide it generates.

    To run games from disc you will need neogamma
    to run games from a hard drive, try GX loader, CFG loader or wiiflow

    Give it a go and see how you get on.

    Depending on your current firmware you may need a 1 or 2 gb sd as a 4+ will not work

    sorry to say the wiikey is dead!!!

    The reason is if you didn't run the wiikey update before you installed the system update the wiikey is now a paperweight sorry.

    Happened to a huge amount of wiikey owners.

    Thanks for all your replies!! Maybe I will soft mod my wii.

    My wiikey is not dead. I can only play PAL games with UG or something. Figured that out. I think that he is dying but certainly not dead.

    No the Wiikey is not dead or dying, you updated, on later updates from Nintendo they removed the option to play out of region games (think it was 4.2)

    Softmodding allows you to play out of region games again.
