    Cool Bricked wii fix (EASY!)

    so my wii is bricked and i have a savemiifrii modded gamecube controller but im on system menu version 4.0 so i cant fix it and i ran out of dvd-r discs (probibly wont work anyway scince i never installed cIOSCORP) so then i thought of something "what if i could boot a game up with wi-fi and use that game to get into the wii options then back out and use banner bomb to get into wad manager and re-install my system menu" i tried it with mario kart wii i found one way into the system menu but i require internet connection to get into it and scince i dont have wiiconnect24 or internet enabled when i use my router to get into it it will ask me to go in and enable it but instead i back out of it and then go into the data management part of my wii and use banner bomb to restore my wii menu and then it worked now i have a fully functioning wii again

    here are the things you need i dont have links though but google helps

    1.banner bomb
    2.SD card
    3.Mario Kart Wii
    4.Wi-fi internet connection
    5.wad manager boot.dol
    6.savemii or savemiifrii modded gamecube controller
    7.a wii with disabled internet and wiiconnect24 (dont remember witch it asked me to go in and enable)

    (sorry for what this looked like before i was to excited to type clearly because i got it working ill re-brick my wii and do this on video for all you people some time not really sure how it worked though but this is what i did)

    after you got all that you can restore your system menu easily

    So, you can boot mario kart without a modchip? Did you ever apply any system menu hacks?

    Ok, mario kart boots using savemiifrii, you then try to play online, and what you did not have the network configured, or just did not have wiiconect24 turned on, but it took you to the system settings so you could enable the connection? And then you went into datamangment and bannerbomb the app to fix?

    So far I love it, but I have a few questions. I always have wiiconnect24 off, but my wii is setup, and when I play mario kart it does not send me to the system settings. Will it if the lan is not configured? I don't have the game to test it from savemiifrii, so perhaps you could do a few tests since your all set up.

    Was your wifi configured prior?
    You said wiiconnect24 was off?
    You do or do not have a mod chip?
    You did or did not enable a system menu hack, particulary "remove disk diag check" with preloader or star patch?
    The game was original or backup?
    Do you have cIOSCORP?
    What region is your wii?
    What region mario kart did you use?
    Is this your idea, or did you find it somewhere?
    If found somewhere, do you have a link?

    My wii was not configured to internet or wiiconnect24
    I do not have a modchip
    disk diag check was removed with star patch
    the game is the original
    i do not have cIOSCORP
    my wii is USA region
    mario kart is USA region
    this was all my idea

    Excellent work, this idea of your should help some people.
    So from what you have said, the most important requirement is-
    -disk diag check removed
    or
    -modchip, set to autoboot.

    Your network was not setup, but if some did have it set up, I wonder if it would work if you unplugged the router?
    I also wonder if it would work on a wii with lan setup, and wii connect24 turned on, but with the router powered off?
    And does the wii do this with most online game play? Or just mario kart?

    (back to me talking dosent really look good with someone editing my post instead of just putting in a new one but anyway)
    i have tried it with super smash bros brawl but it wouldent work for that
    what i did was on the lisense selection screen of mario kart wii i went to setting and it said set up my rigion and that for some reason requires internet so it asked me to configure it and then promted me to configure wiiconnect 24 so instead of configure any of those i just went out of it and then into data management to do banner bomb dont really know what removeing the disc daig check does but im thinking that did something.
