    BannerBrick (I Think) What Can I Do?

    I have an unmodded Wii (LU70), system menu 4.0. I did not install any brick protection (well bootmii, but not as boot2). I believe it's banner bricked because it occurred after I tried to install a wad, and the health and safety screen loads - once I press A it goes black and nada.

    I can access that savemiifrii thing with the gamecube controller.

    Before it bricked, I installed the homebrew channel, and the Trucha Bug Restorer - I was able to use USB Loaders.

    Now, what can I do? If I get it modified, can I restore it?

    Any and all help would be appreciated.

    Also, my wii is still under warrenty. If I send it in, would they know I tried to softmod it?

    First, at the health screen hold + and -, then push A a few time. If you are blessed, it will boot your wii into maintenace mode, then uninstall the bad wad. Unfortunately, that probably won't work.

    So-
    When you hacked your wii, did you install ios60 patched with the trucha bug?
    Or maybe you install Indiana Pwns?

    If you did one of the two above, you can fix it with a modchip preconfigured to autoboot and a recovery disk. With out ios60 patched with trucha bug or Indiana Pwns installed, there is nothing you can do with a modchip.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I'm not sure I installed ios60 patched with the trucha bug. I did something with the Trucha bug so that I could use the wad manager, but I'm not sure what.

    Here's my new question then: Can I use my wiikey mod chip? I have another Wii with a Wiikey installed, is it possible to just swap out the drives and load one of those autoloaders that way (assuming I did that thing with trucha bug)?

    Swaping will be fine, just set the wiikey to autoboot first.
    Try to autoboot this HBC disk
    New HBC AB.rar

    Or this loadmii disk

    When I put the AL discs in the already modded wii, it says an error occurred. Is this because that Trucha thing isn't installed on it? And does this mean that the Autoload function works with my mod chip?

    It means that the wii does not have a trucha bug on its system ios, and it means that the chip is probably working.

    Hopefully you patched ios60 on the bricked wii.

    Okay, thank you.

    I won't be able to switch out the drives for another few days, so I'll let you know if it worked then. One last question until then: Would I have needed to patch ios60 to run games softmodded, or no?

    No, you don't need ios60 patched to play backups. If it does not work, review this thread which demonstrates filling your nand to max, allowing entry into the data management.

    I'm a little confused as to how I go about filling up the nand. Do I need to make autobootable discs and add save files to fill up the space?

    Okay, I think I have a plan of action. If anyone sees any problems with it, let me know.

    What I have:

    1. A wii with a wiikey installed. It does not have the Trucha bug installed, so I can't check to see if my Wiikey will autoboot Trucha signed cIOS.

    2. A banner bricked wii.

    Plan A: Swap out the disc drives of the two wiis and hope that I patched the necessary ios on the bricked wii with the trucha bug restorer. If I did, I can use one of the various AB discs to get to either anytitledeleter or wad manager and uninstall the defective wad.

    Plan B: Swap the drives and realize that I did not patch the necessary IOS. From here, I make an autoboot disc of Smash Bros Brawl (PAL) and Wii Fit Plus. I autoboot SBB on the bricked wii, and use the snapshot feature to fill up the NAND. Once filled, I use the Wii Fit Plus to install the channel. As the NAND will be filled, it will prompt me to the data management screen where I use banner bomb to load loadmii. From there, I load the Homebrew Channel, use the anytitledeleter/wad manager, get rid of the bad wad, and fixed.

    Plan C: If plan B fails, instead of using the data management to load the Bannerbomb, I use the wii system settings to format the wii, getting rid of all installed wads, and having it hopefully restored.

    Please, if anyone can see a problem with my plan of action, let me know. I don't know anything about Autoboot discs. I'm assuming of course that you don't need the trucha bug to run an autoboot disc of a backup (which I'm probably wrong about). Please, again, let me know.
