USB Loader GX is known to brick wii's. I understand the situation that "how does cover art cause a brick!!! *RAGE QUIT*"
If you were using a diffrent usb loader then im stumped on how it did it.
it was the one in: "Guide: Softmod ANY Wii" by mauifrog (it was refered to as "CFG-USBLoader")
i followed that guide and the only thing i did that wasnt in the guide was play a game for 5 min, and try to get cover art
i even made sure to read his little guide on things to never do....
i have no clue how i bricked this wii and without knowing how i did it, how can i prevent it from happening again?
Ok i have never EVER heard of GFC loader ever bricking a wii before. That is the most strangest thing i have ever heard. CFG is supposed to be the most reliable.
Only thing we can try is gc trick or re-programming. Before you go to bed unplug wii console overnight from the wii and the wall socket. You know just in case if it fixes itself overnight.
i tried that wile i was at work today, but i will try it again just incase
my friend has a GC controller i could probly use, but its nintendo so i might have to take it apart to press all 4 dpad buttons and thats a no no with borrowed things haha
my other option i thought about (not sure how moral the people in this forum are haha)
buy a new one from walmart or the source, swap the serial number stickers, return bricked one
the stickers seem really easy to get off, just not sure about getting them back on
anyone ever done this?
Well it may be possible to do the walmart trick but there must be some sort of system they have worked out.
Just use glue or superglue or tape to put serial number on.
For the gamecube trick you have to take apart controller, remove a plastic pin and then you can press all 4 buttons. when done just re-assemble.
The bad thing about the walmart one is, if it even works, is that you have a wii:
that is at 4.3
cant read burnt dvd's
cant use modchips
usb loading is fine.
Make sure there are no scratches on the old one and when it has been done, get da hell outta there!!

yeah and id have to buy a game to do one of those exploits, unless i get really lucky and they had old 4.2 wiis instock haha
or rent the game
so what r u gonna do?
return the wii from who u bought from
well first im waiting to see if my friend will let me use his GC controller if i have to take it apart
if he wont, or if it doesnt work... then ill contact the guy who sold me the wii.
its on ebay so i know he will take it back for sure, i just need to make sure he will also refund original and return shipping costs... which is really a 50/50 shot with the mood he is in and the policys of the company he works for
if he refuses... then i guess i try the walmart deal :P
if all 3 fail then maybe you will have to send it to a programmer.
well i know the walmart thing wont fail.... i just need to find someone to do the actual purchase and return for me, so im not on camera... also all the people at this walmart hate me haha
