    Unhappy Limited Edition Blue Wii Brick [4.3U] Priiloader/Bootmii is not installed BANNERBRICK

    Ok, so first thing is first. I've been lurking and lurking forums for a decent answer, and a way to successfully restore my wii. It was bannerbricked by a bad .wad, I'm looking for any helpful tips. Suggestions; etc. I've contacted Nintendo, I already have a repair in line, and my wii is under warranty. The only thing that is making this a not so happy ending is that I do have homebrew installed and homebrew apps aswell. Such as, USBLoaderGX and CFg. Also a few fowarding channels, I'm sure it was the bad Mario Party 9 .wad that had bricked it. So please, if anyone at all, could give me a hand at working to solve my dillema. Please, please do so......... As I stated in the title, yes I did not install bootmii nor priiloader. But I'd appreciate everyone who can provide some helpful support. Offering some type of reward, probably just paypal some money to you. I JUST NEED MY WII BACK. But to whoever helps me turn this around, I can offer around 20 - 40 USD $

    My guess is that you might be in bad shape. But I've been wrong before. If you don't find a way to fix this, you should know that if Nintendo finds the homebrew channel on your wii (or even any trace that it was EVER installed) they'll end up charging you for the repair, and a lot. It might actually end up being cheaper to buy a used Wii from eBay or the like.

    I hope it works out for you.

    Any suggestions?, uploading a youtube video now. I gave the the sob story :3 My son did it, but the guy was pretty nice. Though I thought he catching on when he asked, "Is there an external harddrive connected to the rear usb ports?" (Nintendo conversation, approx. 20 mins ago)

    Well, if you could put a hand in, and wouldn't mind helping me (if possible) And that leaves me at one more question... Is it possible?

    It's not about minding anything... it's about what you've done (or more importantly havent done, priiloader would have saved you here).

    The blue wiis lack gamecube ports which are the last hope for wiis in this shape, using SaveMiiFrii. If you have a NAND backup, someone with a programmer could reflash your nand. (I'm guessing since you dont have bootmii installed you dont have a NAND backup).

    But make no mistake, you're not going to get this covered by warranty. Ever. And they'll charge you through the roof for it. I wouldn't even consider sending it back to Nintendo.

    Well, I was reading, and some guy was charged 75$ for restoration. Which isn't as pricey as buying a new one, I'd be paying for a new NAND chip, so I'll just sit back, pack this useless hunk of junk in a box, and smoke a bowl I will definitley give word on price, for sure. Oh and my other idea... which idk, I used to do it to school computers to get out of doing work. But I can get a large enough magnet and just kill my system altogether, you think I could wipe it like that? That'd be on different terms, physical damage still voids warranty, but the question is, would it void it for less?

    Okay lets take a step back. You describe this as a banner brick. What exactly happens?

    Can you turn the wii on with the wiimote? Do you get the health/warning screen?

    Okay. I doubt this will work, but worth a try. Turn on wii. @ Health/safety screen press & hold + and -. While holding those, hit A. See what happens.
