    Im an Idiot!

    Hello

    Well im an idiot to start with! Ive only just found this site, i think if i had i wouldnt be in this situation!

    Well i bricked my wii, it turns on, but i get nothing, my tv doesnt even recognise a signal from it!

    What i did was install homebrew, that was ok, then started on the hack.
    then went to play guitar hero 5 but it asked for an update before playing, and guess what i did! so now all i get is the black screen.

    any ideas?

    Why do people accept disc updates? It's the first thing I found out when I soft modded my Wii.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    Can you please tell me, why can't/shouldn't we use disc updates?
    I've bought my Wii (Wiikey2 installed, 3.3E) and people there told me to be able to play my games I sometimes have to update it with the game.

    So update PAL with PAL games?

    If not, please tell me, I'll search the forums why not to do this.

    Thx and sorry for n00b questions.

    P.S. Sry for the grammar also


    edit - If this is wrong section, I deeply apologize
