    Semi bricked Japanese wii

    Hello.

    I recently bought a Japanese Wii when i try to access the system settings i get a Opera error "You tried to access the address marc:JP/JP/JPN/ondex01.html"
    from what i have read, i presume this means it's semi bricked. I think the Wii is running 4x> firmware as it has the SD icon.

    When i try to install banner bomb i get error#004, from what i have read this may mean it's on 4.3? When i try to use letterbomb, i open the red letter and the whole thing just freezes up.

    This Wii does not have the homebrew channel or anything else on it. Does any one have any ideas on how this can be fixed??

    Regards Chris.

    No there's nothing at all left on the Wii just the system menu.

    You will need to use a standard SD card, 2GB or less. Follow the Softmod ANY Wii guide and install the correct system menu version of your Wii when you get to the 4.1 system menu installation.

    I have tried to use the Softmod ANY Wii guide by using letterbomb but when i open the red letter the Wii just freezes, i can't use any of the disc exploits as i don't own any of the games in NTSC J. Does the bannerbomb error#004 defo mean it's running 4.3 do you know? Thank for your time also.

    Yes, that 004 error happens when trying to bannerbomb a 4.3 Wii. I believe you will have to use a disc exploit to install the HBC since you cant get access to your mac address in order to be able to use letterbomb.

    PNY 1GB SD and also a Prolectrix 1GB. They both work fine with the PAL Wii i have.

    Im out of ideas as of this moment. Hopefully mauifrog will chime in when he sees this. His knowledge in this area far surpasses mine.
