    Us Semi Brick Need Help

    I have an original wiikey. I have the opera error when trying to access settings. I don't have the homebrew channel installed or anything else. I have no idea what to do and need to get this fixed. I don't know what version i'm on either. Please experts take the time to help me out i'm getting really frustrated. Thanks in advance

    You updated out of region. Do you know what game? Try to download the NSMB in your region, full version- no scrub. If you are lucky it will update you back to your region.

    New super mario bros ntsc did work on my wii but it gave me an error message after about 5 mins of play. It never asked to do an update. My wii has been in this condition for over 4 months. Do you think irenting the game would help me? What other things can I do?

    Well you can softmod your wii. Then boot into preloader and reinstall your system ios and your system menu.

    Follow the guide below that matches your system menu. 3.1-4.1 is yours, I think.
    Otherwise you will have to wait for a new system menu to come on a disk.

    Let me know how it goes.

    i also tried to do the twilight hack with a backup because i have a chip. When i tried to copy the save file it wouldn't let me do it. I am going to try and find the original new super mario bros disc and see what happens. I have no idea what version i am on. Is there a way i can find out what version being in a semi bricked status? Thanks for taking the time to help me out. I am an expert with the 360 mods but when it comes to the wii i admit i am a newb.

    The twilight hack does not work on newer system menu's. Follow the 3.1-4.1 guide below, assuming your on 4 or 4.1, or follow the 4.2 guide if not.

    Do you know what system menu you started on?

    I will assume you mean system menu 3.4 PAL – v386
    If that is correct you will need to
    Complete the softmod guide parts 1, 2, and 3
    Then install with wadmanager
    Install ios50 wad
    Then your system menu 3.4 for your region. 3.4u right?
    System menu 3.4u

    Then complete steps 4 and 5 of the guide.

    Just use preloader to install IOS50 v4889 and System Menu USA v385 and your semi-brick will be a thing of the past. I have both in my mediafire (click sig). Look in IOS and System Menu folders. You'll need to run Wad manager to install these files and you'll need a cIOS to do so. Just make sure you pick the right wad for your region, I'm assuming you are USA.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
