Some chips like the Wiikey have built in update protection. Read up on what chip you have installed. Until you know for sure, do not run the system update. Hope this helps...

The Wii console light will turn green


Hi sharonkayh,

Try the following:

1) Completely power down your system by pressing the power button for 10 seconds. If that doesn't work, unplug the AC Adapter from the Wii for a moment, then plug it back in.

2) Make sure your Wii console has the most current Wii system menu. Download the latest update, and then test your Wii console to determine if the problem has been resolved.

This is done by:
  1. Make sure your Wii console is successfully connected online.
  2. Access the Wii System Settings.
  3. Click on the blue arrow twice to reach the Wii System Settings 3 menu options.
  4. Select "Wii System Update" and press the A Button.
  5. Select "Yes," and read any messaging regarding obtaining the update. If you agree to the messaging, select "I Accept."
  6. The Wii console will now search for the latest Wii System Update.
  7. If an update is available, it will be downloaded and installed automatically.

I hope this can help you - Source: Nintendo Website.

Kind Regards

Wii soft mod guide


Wii SoftMod Guide 3.1 - 4.1
Before we start into the process, you will need an SD card, at most 2gb capacity. This SD card will need to be formatted into FAT32 format.

Note: If you are on Wii System Firware 3.1, 3.3 or 3.4 You need to be connected to the Internet, unless you know the proper steps to upgrade using the Wii System WAD and Firware Updater 4.1 which I may include later.


First, download this file pack. Wii SoftMod 3.1 - 4.1 Pack
Download Readme file here. Wii SoftMod Readme

Step 1. Install The Homebrew Channel & BootMii

1. Put all the files from ‘Wii SoftMod 3.1 - 4.1.rar’ onto the root of the SD Card.
2. Insert the SD card into Wii.
3. Go to Wii Options, then go to Data Management > Channels > SD Card, then you will get a message saying "Load boot.elf?" , select 'Yes' and the Hackmii installer will run. (Goto the Channels first, then insert card or your console might freeze)
4. Install Bootmii as boot2 if you can, if not then install it as an IOS then go back and install the Homebrew Channel.

Step 2. Install Recommended CIOS

1. Go to Homebrew channel and run Trucha Bug Restorer, load IOS36, press 1, read the warnings then select 'downgrade IOS15', select to load IOS from SD card then let it do its job, keep an eye on what it is doing and make sure you select 'load from sd card' when it asks & don't get any errors.
2. Run Trucha Bug Restorer again, this time select to load IOS15 on first screen using dpad left/right, then select the IOS36 menu & install patched (select 'yes' on all 3 patches) IOS36 to slot 36, again using IOS from SD card.
3. Run Trucha Bug Restorer again, load IOS36 and this time select restore IOS15.
4. Run cIOS38 r14 installer, select IOS36 as the one it should use and then select wad install.
5. If your Homebrew Channel flips upside down then continue with the guide and when completed reinstall the homebrew channel.

Step 3. Update System Menu (Only for 3.1, 3.3 or 3.4 Firmware) Note: Internet Connection needed

1. Before you update to 4.1 make sure you have at least 250 blocks free or you will brick, install IOS60-patched first with Wad Manager using IOS249, then run Firmware Updater 4.1.

Step 4. The Final Step

1. Go to the Homebrew Channel and run Wad Manager 1.4 and load IOS249 (Default) and SD card.
2. Instal the following IOS.

* IOS38-64-v3610

* IOS50-64-v4889

* IOS53-64-v5149

* IOS55-64-v5149

* NeoGamma r8b17

Restart your console and your finished!

Hi we brought wii games from thailand is there anyway they will play on our australian WII


(If you just want to keep your Wii system normal) Nintendo games are put onto DVD-ROM discs, Australia's and Thailand's DVD region codes are different, so it would not be compatible. Austrailia is in Region 4, Thailand is in region 3.
(If you want to Mod your Wii) However, you could Mod your Wii, most mod chips are able to circumvent region coding and copy protection, which will let you play games created in different regions.

Here are some Pros and Cons of modding your system with a mod chip.
PROS:
You can play back up copy's of your games. You can play games from different regions (Such as you want to) You can play homebrew games. (User created Wii games)

CONS: 1.This WILL void your warranty 2.Some updates may try and Brick your Wii (Make system inoperable, you will have to buy a new one.), always read what people say about the new update before you update if you have a modded system.
3.Keeping your Wii up to date is very important especially when you are playing out of Region disc games, you could brick your system if you don't be careful.

My wii won't play the new wii games.Need to know how to upgrade?It will play the older wii games.


hi there,
the best and easiest way to upgrade the firmware on your wii is to connect the wii to your internet and look for system update in the system settings and update that way. Altthough most games that need newer firmware come with the update installed on the disc, normally once you insert the disc it will tell you it need to update the system firmware in order for the game to work, so i'm not sure why this is not happening for you if your new games not playing. The only thing i can think of if it's not updating automatically is that the wii has been chipped/modded in some way, has it? If it has'nt just connect the wii to the internet you should be able to update it that way.
Hope that helps

New Wii!!! "Can´t read the disc" message.


Jessica first check to make sure that you got the right version of wii disc etc america region supports ntsc games while europe supports pal , if you do have the correct game i advise you not to update the wii and do two of the following things
1) return the wii and get a new one
2) soft mod the wii once below system menu 4.2, if mod works it should fix disc error if not the disc drive is bad and you will need to change it.

Wii console gets stuck and generates a loud persistent noise when playing wii just dance, what do we do to fix it? Our wii console is about 2 years old.


It may be the same as the problem with running Monster Hunter Tri on a modded console. It's probably looking for a specific system menu version. If you haven't done it already, then update your system fully to 4.2U.
If not, then there's probably something wrong with the game, usually it's just scratches that cause the laser to stop reading and it just gets stuck in a loop of sorts.

Wii Console: My wii console says 'wii system update' everytime ...


I had a friend with the same issue. I just modded his wii and then he backed the games up to a hard drive and they played perfectly without an update being needed. The best place to get your wii modded is www.wiihdmods.com

You might need to mod it... which may be costly if you dont do it yourself.. otherwise its a region locked game and you wont be able to play it!

The Modded wiis often have problems. Especially the ones that have CLONED mod chips instead of the branded ones. I guess that either your modchip died on you or it has badly ironed on Wii's Motherboard. Also, can the mod chip be updated?

Guest, have you dropped your console? Something is seriously broken in there....

My wii is chiped and it wasworking perfectly now wen i put in a disk it says check the users manual?? please help cant live without it!!


If you have recently installed a system update, one was included with smash bros brawl, it changed the system settings which rendered the chip useless. Try updating the chip.
