    4.3U Wii is Bricked (Banner bricked i think) I still need help!!

    After installing a bad .wad from crap I can no longer use my Wii. I also no longer have priiloader. Once I press A at the health screen there is a quick pause and then the screen just goes black. After searching around I decided to buy a wiikey fusion mod chip which i just installed today and also modded my GC controller. Temp. Probem: I was able to get into the recovery menu but I have a disc in the wii that the Wii will not eject. Big Problem: How can I unbrick my Wii? Any help is much appreciated

    Edit: 4.3U Wii
    No bootmii/priiloader
    Recently installed Wiikey Fusion modchip

    Moral of the story: Crap really is "crap". As for your problem, I wish I could help but I don't know how to. You should wait for a user named "mauifrog" to comment, he is very intelligent and will surely be helpful to you.

    Instead of installing custom channels that point out to games on a USB (with a higher brick risk), I would set USB Loader GX to channel view and autoboot to it using Priiloader.

    Never mess with the system menu, it may prove to be very costly.

    1. open the Wii plastic enclosure, do some effort to get the disc out of DVD drive.
    2. search "Recovery of Bricked Wii...." to get some idea.
    3. buy some quality DVD-R blank disc and get a DVD multi-writer ready.
    4. prepare yourself to apply SSBB disc-swap method to unbrick your Wii.

    I was able to get the disc out but don't know exactly what to do. Do you have any more detail on the swap method or any other method that would work? Am i able to do the autobooting wad manager to unbrick it?

    Yes, run the autobooting Wad Manager through recovery menu and uninstall the "crappy" wad.

    And as soon as you unbrick your Wii, install BootMii and Priiloader (it's in the Softmod ANY Wii guide).

    human being, all are created equal.
    Wii DVD drives and modchips, all are not created equal.
    try Wasabi-DX if WiiKey failed to serve you.

    You shouldn't need a modchip. Boot to the HBC from Priiloader, load ModMii (or another WAD manager) and uninstall the bad WAD.
