Please check with mod before doing this.

Ok- on my menu i have mii, photo channel, wii shop, two news channel, one forecast channel and another forecast channel in a different langauage, and yes i can go through wii/datamanagment/channels/sd .
I read somewhere that you can reset your parental controls, but for that you need to have access to your settings.
So i guess i have the option now to load homebrew via bannerbomb.
I will get a twirlkey to open up my wii to see if it has any mods- or this is not advisable?
Thanks again everyone, now i have hope

Ok so now i have HBC and have done what was required in the tutorials,
Now im trying to update the Firmware to 4.1, the only problem is when i do this through wad manager it gets stuck on network connection, I can't get into my network settings because it is bricked, any suggestions?
but dont rush into doing it. if you can wait untill 8pm london time i will upload wads to my mediafire for you. when you installed the homebrew channel did you get an option to install bootmii (very important!!!!!) as boot 2 or as an ios? if you can install as boot2 or ios(back up your nand) now even with your semibrick yes. you can do another back up when all is fixed but at least you will have a restore point if anything goes wrong. dont just upgrade to 4.1 without installing relavant Ios wads. just wait till later.
BOOTMII if you dont know what it is read up about it now.
time to get kids got to go!!!!
i've been able to install pal-v450 via WAD, hope that was right- so i can get into settings now. and have version 4.1e
But i havent been able to reset the parental code, after finding my master code on the net.
I've tried loading some games i copied through neogamma and gecko os but get the #001 code. apparently this only happens if you have wiikey, which i dont.
Also whats confusing myself is- can i move the private folder and boot.elf after installing homebrew, this is what i have done.

Are you sure there's no Wiikey in your Wii?
cIOScorp also has been known to give #001 errors.

Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
ive got one card with all my homebrew stuff on, i stick it in when i load homebrew/ ive got another with bootmii files, another with saves. its up to you, not sure really.
as for loading games im not to sure try to load this cios (link bellow) via wad manager! its what i use. im not up with all the cios stuff Tealc99 seems to know quite a bit.
Free File Hosting Made Simple - MediaFire
hope this helps. if not and you do open your wii just be carefull/ its very fragile compared to the ps3
can you still install wads and stuff now that your on 4.1e?
i use ciosv9 wad and install everything using wadmanager 1.5 in my media fire or is it wad2 thats also a wad manager.
im a bit erratic sorry. its probably best to read up on it.

I went on youtube and went through the "hack your wii in 7 minutes" and right now my wii works only via backuplauncher. Neogamma and geckos gets and error#001.
But this is better than nothing, managing to unbrick it and play backup games. Still have minor probs with neogammer and blackscreen issues, but have not yet found the solution to the problem just yet.
I do feel for some of the noobs out there posting their questions, then getting a response to use the search function, then only to find out that the search function leeds to other noob questions, which can be very tiresome.
