    Exclamation Full Brick... -Insert Curseword 'Here'-

    So... Earlier today I played some Wii, it worked fine, my backup disc had a scratch on it, and because of my homebrew I was happy to have the luxury of throwing the disc at high velocity toward a wall. I put "Burn another wii game" to my to-do list.

    Then my brother decided he was going to play NTSC-U Trauma Center S.O. for Wii. And he had just recently learned that in order to play DragonQuest he would have to turn ForcePal60 on (for some really weird reason it goes to a green screen when in NTSC mode. It turned black and white in 60 and skippy in 50, so it sucked all around), and after setting Wiigator to 60, he claims the screen turned grey, then he pressed the power button and it "froze", then he pressed it AGAIN (I seriously want to beat him with a stick as he tells me this story), he checked the powerstrip, then looked back at the wii and it powered off "completely".

    I went down there, containing three times Poseidon's rage when he lost the remote to the only underwater television in the world, and pressed the power button. Thinking "this kid is pretty non-tech-savvy" and it worked like a charm that you buy from a crappy garage sale. Not at all.

    I unplugged the thing, waited an hour, plugged it back in and pressed power... -suspense-. Nothing. I've quadruple checked the powerstrip(circuit breaker, surge protecter, etc.), and it's not the problem. I unplugged the transformer from the wii itself, waited an hour and plugged iit back in... nothing.

    My mother has already literally DISOWNED ME from the family for putting the homebrew channel on there (I'm dead serious), she's on a vacation in Florida right now... and I don't know what to do.

    I had Wiigator, homebrew channel, a downgraded 3.2 firmware, and starfall installed. It is an NTSC-U wii, and as far as I know there were no IOS/CIOS clashes.


    She's already extremely pissed off at me on a daily basis for not finding a job, and not doing laundry on time and stuff... So if I can't fix this I'll probably get kicked out of the house when I turn eighteen (in April). Is there ANYTHING I can do to fix this?...

    For the love of Satan please help me... I'm about to have a Nervous Breakdown(by Black Flag). =]
    <twitch>


    Also I have a kendo stick, some nunchukus, and a katana. Should I use these on myself, or my brother?







    OKAY!!:
    I fixed it, sorta.
    I unplugged it ALL and left it for an hour and a half, then plugged it ALL back in... Worked like lucky charms.

    ok, I'm glad you got it working because I was gonna say that Starfall should have blocked any kind of updates that game would have wanted to do.

    Glad everything come out ok,

    Now go get a job!!!
