    Exclamation half bricked wii PAL with Mario Triiforce

    Hi,

    My system is PAL and was purchased about a month ago.I hard modded with a D2SUN modchip and played a few games. My son like the mario and i have downed the Super Mario Trii Force(NTSC). The game asked to upgrade the sw version so i said yes. It finished and the i rebooted the wii and once i started the wii disk it started doing it again but this time was allot longer. Around half it got blocked and gave me an error message that i need to eject the dick and power down the wii. I have unplugged the wii and rebooted. All fine except i cant access the setting menu like described in this thread. I have did some research trying to load the firmware from a card but it seems not to recognize any cards. Is there any DVD iso that fixes this problem i.e reloading the menu system?? Im not sure what version my wii is at the moment but i guess its one of the latest ones. I went thru a few posts but all are related to card fixes. Other fixes recommend a ISO image but it works only with a Modded Game-cube controller which i dont have and even if i get one was no description of how to do it. Please help anyone. BTW i have found a thread on other forums that sugested installing Big Brain Academy that has a newer firmware but i guess that is old news.
    PS I will be careful to not brick it fully

    Please Advise

    Thank You in Advance

    Sounds like you just updated to 4.1u. The only fix is to upgrade to a higher disk in region. Unfortunaly I don't know of any disks that have 4.2e on them, so you will have to wait.

    Or you can follow the 3.1-4.1 guide below and softmode your wii. Then you can manually reinstall the system ios and system menu 4.1e. The only trouble you will have is bannerbomb- you can't use it since your region bricked. You will need to use smash stack or indiana pwns to load the hackmii installer, then follow the guide as usual. Info on those hacks can be found with google @ wiibrew.

    Exclamation cannot access card message

    Hi

    I have tried but i cannot access the card at all even pictures. The DSI has no problems reading the card. Is there any way around this problem? Until i get to the part that card is accessible i cannot start anything. The D2Sun chip 1.53 should be able to run home brew. Anyway any homebrew cd that is inserted it gives an error message.

    Help is much appreciated

    Thank You

    You should have
    sd:\private (this is bannerbomb)

    sd:\wads\"your wad files" (these wads are installed with wadmanager)

    sd:\apps\"application folder"\boot.dol (these apps load in hbc)

    sd:\boot.dol(elf) - (this is the app banner bomb will load)

    </DIR></DIR></DIR></DIR>

    Hey Thanks for you help. Is this normal that it doesn't see any SD cards??

    Just want to know what to expect. Do i have to do anything else or just copy the files to card and try and run it. I have followed these steps already but im still stuck at the part where the card is not recognized. Probably i miss something easy here. I will get a new card but my DSi is recognizing this card with no problems either way is formatted FAT or FAT 32

    On 4.1 wii's bannerbomb is loaded from data managment, which you don't have access to. Bannerbomb does not work from the channel menu for 4.1 and less. You could try bannerbomb v2, for 4.2 wii, but I don't think that will work. As I said in post #3, you will need to use the "smash stack" hack with SSBB ntsc to install hbc.

    Is there any description of how this hack works i.e. what a loader does what a boot mii does and so on. Im only starting this being forced by events. I'm good on the hardware part of things. Also wonder if the flash dump wouldn't help to devise a more easier way to rewrite the whole flash and thus recover any wii.I know that your description of how to are comprehensive but i miss out all the slang that im not familiar to.

    Hope this make sense why i have difficulties understanding help. I spent allot of time searching and trying to understand what wads and all these extensions mean and i suppose that are related to the wii file structure but i couldnt find any description of that.

    Thanks

    Read about the hackmii installer apps at wiibrew.org

    This is a good readmii on softmodding
    Softmodding a Wii FAQ

    I like this as well
    Wii cIOS Explained

    This is a good starting point for questions
    Ultimate WiiHacks Index

    The hacks you will need to use to run the hackmii installer
    Smash Stack
    or
    Indiana Pwns

    Do your reading, let me know if you need any clarification.
