    Wii drive protection bypassed via a PC

    The current modchips available for the Wii console only act as a bypass for the Wii's disc drive protection - preventing any back-up discs it detects from booting on the console.

    According to a recent video posted on youtube you can achieve the same effect with a parallel port cable soldered to the drive board and then run the backup games via a PC.

    Textb00k: (the video author)
    You will need a male parallel port and a couple diodes, both parts available at Radioshack for under 3 bucks. Follow Erant's instructions on soldering in the cable, then use Syndicate or WAB's "ISO Loader" or "WABModCheap" programs to temporarily patch the drive firwmare to allow backups to load. Not as feasabile as a modchip for the reason that you have to use a PC every time, but for 3 bucks and the chance to get it done right then, it was worth it for me.

    I almost did it but Decided not to because you still need to open up your Wii and solder stuff. So if you're already going to open up your Wii and solder imo i'm just going to get a modchip after a few of them are on the market.

    That's sweet. I'm not that computer savvy though.
    I'd screw things up.



    Well do you?

    odd seeing as parallel connections dont support plug and play, some motherboards would fry if you plug a parallel device while its running...
