    banner brick after nand restore?

    Yesterday I decided to update the shop channel to get the Netflix channel using dop-mii. After that I decided to see about loading games from an external drive. At one point I decided to do a nand restore from a backup I made that morning. After the restore I can no longer access the system menu.

    Current status:
    System menu 4.1u
    Boots to bootmii/boot2
    HBC loads and works great
    Going to system menu displays the health warning, click a, then it goes black.

    I did try reinstalling the ios and system menu from dop-mii with no change. Any suggestions before I try reinstalling the whole wii? I think I may try reinstalling the ios and system menu with wads. Thanks for any help!

    Not sure what rationale was used when doing a system restore however, you will need to know what wad caused the brick (if itís a banner brick) and uninstall it. If you donít know then you can use the official N recovery disc to uninstall any 3rd party wads. If you want your game saves, you can extract them from your NAND backup and reinstall them manually since they will be erased if you use the recovery disc.

    Edit: You might also look into using the NAND formatter linked in my signature.

    What exactly is happening when you turn on the wii? I doubt it is a banner brick, you where not bricked when you made the backup, right?
    When you turn on the wii-
    You get a black screen?
    You get an error
    You get the health screen, then an error?
    Priiloader works, does not work? Hold reset and boot the wii to load it.

    Also, backup and format your sd-card
    Extract CB2_BB_SysCheck_1.6.1.zip to sd:\
    Boot the wii with the sd card in the wii
    syscheck should run and make a cvs report on your sd card
    Post that report here
    If syscheck does not load, note what happens and post it here.

    Well, I hate to admit it but I went off half-cocked and started WE DON'T CARE. Ended up not being able to restore the bug in IOS36. Anyway, the Wii wasn't bricked at the time of the NAND backup so I don't know why that failed..

    I tried booting the DVD but got nothing.. Wii stilll hangs (Goes to a black screen and that's it) after clicking A on the health warning screen.

    Here's my sysCheck...

    Spoiler



    Thanks for the help guys! If nothing else it looks like the NAND Formatter will do the trick.

    Since you have boot2 bootmii, you may try the nand formatting guide.

    You could also try to load HBC and lauch that Nintendo disc via neogamma, then do the delete all option

    Or try holding + - at the health screen, then pressing A- then is the SM loads, do a system format from the settings.

    If you have any idea what title could have caused this issue, you could delete it with Any title deleter DB.

    Nand formatting is the simplest option.

    I'm up and running! For the record:

    First tried the DVD but it wasn't recognized, maybe just a bad burn or media.

    Then I used the - and + trick to go into system management mode and that worked perfect. I did notice that if I tried to restart the system menu while in sm mode it would work for a split second and then lock up, even the sound effects.

    Went back to hbc, had to reintroduce bug, installed saved game app, backed up my save data and miis, back to sm mode, format system menu, boot back into a working wii!

    Now I'll make sure to get a working nand backup before messing around again.

    Thank you for all of the great advice!

    Well it wasn't a banner brick after all LOL. Usually a mail brick will show itself seconds after entering the SM from health warning screen. You didn't mention that happening so I didn't think entering in maintenance mode would work. Anyway, glad you sorted it all out and good call Mauifrog.

    Aren't mail bricks really rare? I am pretty sure that this is the first case I have seen.

    Probably not as common as full bricks but I've seen about a dozen of them on wiihacks this year. I've also had a couple of them come in my shipments.
