    Full Brick help

    Hello

    I have a wii console with chip D2PRO with the following characteristics:

    Fimware 3.2E (pal)
    Homebrew Channel 8
    StarFall
    WadManager 1.3?

    The console is bricked

    When I turn the wii the red light turns green, the screen turns black (from 5 in 5 seconds appear horizontal and oblique lines then turns black), the dvd drive is blocked and the Wiimote is flashing intermittently.

    The Last operation performed (the reason of brick)

    In the homebrew channel tried to see which version of wadmanager I want ot install (entering the program without install).
    In wadmanager I did not accept and select back to turn to homebrew channel Then I select the key home to return the wii menu and turn off the console.
    The next time I had turn it on I had the brick.

    Why it happens?

    It seems a full brick, it is easy to repair with savemii?

    What are the several steps to unbrick?

    Thank you for you help

    Hold your Horses, Not everyone has your problem you know.

    I have already experienced a full brick on a NTSC-U wii before, a full brick is when you get the black screen and you are unable to connect a wii controller (like yours).

    Doing research in an attempt to repair my wii I've found these solutions.

    1. try the savemefrii method, plug a GC controller in the 4th slot and press all 4 dpad buttons at the same time upon switching on the console. You should see your firmware flash at the bottom of the screen allowing you to boot recovery mode.

    2. If the above method does not work, the controller flashing means you have a burnt out bluetooth adaptor, this means you need to replace it.

    3. If you dont think so, then more than likely your motherboard has actually fried up (believe me it happens when you boot CPU intensive homebrew) In this case replacing the motherboard should sove it, but they are expensive. Alternatively you could sell your Wiii on ebay for $150 and get a new one

    I am no expert on this sought of thing, but I am pretty much certain you have full brick and there is currently no practical solution.

    Please decribe this problem in more detail, can you still get to the wii menu, or do you have a black screen?

    first try the savemefrii method where you use a gamecube controller, this should allow you to access the recovery menu where you can boot the HBC and reinstall the firmware.

    If that doesnt work you can try removing the chip and rebooting the system.

    when i power up my console the first thing i got is "System Files are Corrupt"

    i know that I have a chip installed,

    so from this post and Your reply i know about SaveMeFrii,
    i can get a gamecube controller,
    but what Also is needed? is this SaveMeFrii in every console? or it's a chip issue? this recovery menu?

    How can I check if I can get to the menu?

    ---
    and if it's not working, how Can I reboot my console after removing the chip?

    PLEASE READ MY ABOVE POST IT ISNT HARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    or try searching google if you want more information about Savemefrii.

    I don't have to hold your hand through everything right?

    But whilst i'm here anyway, to answer your question, no you don't need need anything more than a GC controller and the Wii console. Putting the Controller in the 4th slot and pressing the all the dpad directions will allow you to boot whatever is in the drive. This means you can boot homebrew if you have it burnt to a disc. Or possibly a game which has a higher firmware.

    ok ok ^^' sorry if I'm asking childish questions,

    I thought that I've answered what you're asked in the previous post.

    but sticking to the topic,
    I've read about SaveMeFrii -
    I can get a gamecube controller - it's not a problem.
    but a question - I need to "open it" to be able to press all four directions right?

    and You're saying that doing it will boot up a dvd insterted in the drive?

    but for example If I put a game with 3.4E update into it, will it install this soft (suposedly that i had soft 3.3 or lower, because I can't even check it for now

    and everything should be fine?

    or I need to make this dvd with game an "autoboot dvd"?

    or I can use a dvd installer of Homebrew Channel? (something I've found on the hbc website)

    and last question,

    what were you saying about "rebooting" console after taking out the chip?
    simply powering it on? or some other method?

    Yes upon immediately turning on the Wii you need to press all 4 directions on the Dpad (this may require you to open the controller but I have heard somepeople succeed without doing so).

    Personally I have never actually used this method because my Full bricked wii was too busted to even work. But "supposedly" you are able to boot a disc from the recovery menu, not sure it means an actual game or autoboot dvd but please try both, you have nothing to lose.

    When I mentioned removing the chip, I was merely giving possibilities to help fix your, I may or maynot do anything, but like I said you have nothing to lose.
