    Question 4.1 bricked with wrong region update, now what?

    Hi, i got a console european bricked after intalling new mario usa update (wasn't me who did this :P)
    now there's no warning screen, only boot directly to opera help screen.
    In RM it shows 4.1E. (Got a wasabi DX with autoboot and region free.)

    I know it wasn't softmodded at all, so no custom disc loading (no bootmii, hbc, preloader, etc...). All it had before was a wiikey1.

    I'm currently burning games to try the method of filling the nand but i burned more than 100 games already and no luck so far, does anyone know the games that come with larger channels (like internet, etc...) or big save files? Also, on a game that has 3 slot profiles, would creating 3 profiles take more space, or the game already gets all the space it would need for all 3 profiles when it first saves? I read that my sism kingdom would use 200 blocks, will that be for the game or for witch profile/save?

    Isn't any method of getting this console to work again, can't i burn the 4.2E update on a disc and make it work, would it work or just get worse, by just taking out the region free option (that would be bad, as i burn mostly ntsc games)

    Any devices are greatly appreciated, thx in advanced, and happy unbricking.

    Rabbids Go home (need around less than 77 blocks)
    MySims Agent (96 blocks or less)
    Mysims Kingdom (200 blocks or less)
    Mysims racing (i think 3 blocks or less)
    etc mysims games

    Once you have low enough to do the workaround you will
    Ex. Rabbids go home

    NOTE: you may also connect with rockband/guitar hero to dl songs if you have a valid wireless/wired connection setup already for a fast fill up!

    1. Start up the console booting your game of choice
    2. Go to the save screen where you can choose your save file.
    3. Click to install the rabbids go home channel
    4. Accept till it says you do not have enough space to install this channel
    5. take out the dvd.
    6. Click go to data management
    7. Congrats you've bypassed the system menu with this workaround, feel free from here to do any of the following hacks (adding saves for brawl/indiana jones/bannerbomb)

    Note: Brawl can be used to see your current amount of space by making stages and saving them only till 108 spaces then it won't show you less. You can fill your nand passed 0 blocks so don't worry about over filling

    Endless ocean 2 has a 4.2e update. I do not think data management will function with your opera error. Burn Endless Ocean 2 pal, unscrubbed, and update from it.

    Before you try 4.2e, you may be able to try 4.1e. 4.1e has a higher system version # then 4.1u. Try to burn NSMB pal and see if it will update you to 4.1e.
