    Question Ive got a 4.1E wii and got some questions about WII bricks

    My wii is not bricked but i want to get it straight there are a few types of bricks yeah
    1. Semi-brick
    2. Full brick
    3. Banner brick
    The semi-brick is easily fixed right the banner brick can be fixed right but Can you fix a banner brick without a modchip can you use a Gamecube controller and SD card and priloader to fix banner bricks and how do you prevent them in the first place(BANNER BRICKS AND FULL BRICKS) I just like taking precautions but the problem is that when My HBC installed the bootmii was installed as IOS ok so lets say if I have the following am i safe from Bricks?
    1. Bootmii installed as IOS (and by the way i know that it installed as an IOS isnt the best way to do it but can i somehow change it to BOOTMII2 )
    2. Priiloader with all the Hacks
    3. Backed up NAND IOS WAY ok

    I heard that if you have the NAND backed up and the priiloader you can fix all bricks except FULL ONES how do you fix them then!
    And the most important question how the heck do you turn the bootmii from IOS to BOOTMII 2 or does it not matter if I have it as an IOS as long as i have a NAND backup
    AND BY THE WAY IN A BANNER BRICK WHAT HAPPENS ARE YOU UNABLE TO PLAY GAMES OR BOOTUP!
    Thanks alot

    Well this section of the forum is supposed to be for ppl who actually are in need of help with their bricked wii, not a discussion about what bricked is or why bricked is.

    In this section you will will find many preexisting threads with different situations and out comes. From that you can determine just about anything for yourself. I doubt that anyone who helps out in this section is gonna want to take time to explain something that you can easily find by reading preexisting threads, especially if this is not related to you actually having a bricked wii and needing assistance with it.

    These are the bricks, their fixes, & how to avoid them:

    Semi-Brick: Either update from a game that's in your region or re-install your system menu WAD & IOS using WAD Manager.
    How to avoid: Don't update from a game that's in another region other than your own!

    Full Brick: Either update from a game that's in your region or re-install your system menu WAD & IOS using WAD Manager.
    How to avoid: Don't mess around with the settings if your not sure if it will work.

    Banner-brick: Delete the bad WAD you installed using WAD Manager
    How to avoid: Don't install corrupted WAD files

    All of these can be fixed without a modchip IF you have priiloader installed.
    To change bootmii IOS to bootmii as boot2, run the Hackmii Installer, un-install bootmii as a IOS, & install bootmii as boot2.
    In a banner brick, you will either get a blank screen, or text that says "System Files are corrupted". If you have priiloader installed or a modchip, you can still autoboot games to play, though.

    To conclude, yes you are safe from bricks if you have those things you listed, but the Homebrew channel must be accessible.

    I have sucessfully installed Bootmii as boot2 on a friend's 4.2E wii, however it was quite old. It's really a thing of trial & error. You can try, if it doesn't work, just go IOS.
