    you know when you update you loose the softmod and risk bricking...NO POINT OF GOING TO 4.3

    its probably not asking for the update if you have priiloader blocking disc updates

    thanks for replying. i have a bricked wii from a bad wad. black screen after the health screen. system menu wont load. Is this a banner brick or full brick? i tried holding down reset when power up, but nothing showed. I thought updating to 4.3 firmware will unbrick my wii. Thanks

    Updating will not help you.
    What softmod guide did you follow to hack your wii?
    Do you have boot2 bootmii?
    Do you have preloader/priiloader (sounds like you don't, why the hell not)
    Does your wii dvd drive support reading burned dvd media?
    Do you have a nand.bin/key.bin from a bootmii backup?

    How much money do you want to spend?

    Hi.

    no, i don't have boot mii, priiloader, or nand backup. I can only access the recovery menu to boot games. Thank you.

    Updating doesn't remove channels (which is what I'm assuming the wad was) and therefore won't fix your issue. You didn't answer all of Mauifrog's questions...

    What softmod guide did you follow to hack your wii?
    Does your wii dvd drive support reading burned dvd media?

    Also, in recovery mode does it still say SM 4.2U or does it now say 4.3U?
    What wad did you brick with?
    Check this list to see if you have a boot2 Bootmii compatible Wii - Boot2 compatible Wii serial number list

    You have a couple possible options,

    1. If you can autoboot discs from recovery mode and your Wii can play burned media, you may be able to autoboot a recovery disc. This also requires a trucha patched and dip patched system menu IOS or patched IOS36 so this is why we want to know what guide you used. If you don't have dip patched IOS (Aka cioscorp) but have patched SM IOS you will need a modchip to run recovery discs.

    2. If you have a Boot2 compatible console, it can be flashed with Bootmii and recovered.

    What wad did you brick with? You will need a modchip to run a recovery disc based on the info you provided.

    Or you can check if your Wii is boot2 compatible and have it flashed if it is.

    thanks for replying. i think it was a neogamma wad. i ordered the drive key. i took the time to burn a universal disc on a dvd-r today. i put it back in the pc, its displayed 0 bytes. Is this normal? cause when i click the drive, there nothing inside. Is there suppose to files in it? I also saw auto boot wad manager and universal discs, once I got my drive key, which one do i need to burn? Thanks again.
