Wii Parental Control Password Reset Tool

October 17th, 2008 by admin in Gaming, Password Info

This should be of use for those who bought second-hand Wiis that were parental-locked. Marcan wrote a quick little tool to generate Parental Control password reset codes without having to call Nintendo. Bushing found the code inside the system menu, and Marcan converted it into a PSP script (Python Server Pages) which you can use on-line.
Go into the Parental controls itself, then Click “I forgot on the Pin” entry page, and “I forgot on the Secret Answer” entry page. Your 8 digit confirmation code will be on the next page. Enter that code into the box here and it will spit back the code to unlock it.
