    Question about GC controller

    Trying to help a friend on SaveMiiFrii

    He bought the after market gamecube controller $7. Will that work or does it have to be official controller?

    This after market is sold at walmrt. no funky feature on it.

    Only one way to find out. I will tell you though that I tried an after market one and it did not work. Of course it had "funky features on it".

    I should also let you know that SaveMiiFrii will not work if:
    1. The System Menu has been removed
    2. The System Menu IOS has been removed
    3. You can not use the recovery menu to fix a brick if the System Menu is the same or higher as the update on the disk. The game disk update must be higher then what is on the Wii.
    4. Will not fix a banner brick.

    Q: If System Menu failed for some reason. Will priiloader still work when you hold the reset button?

    At what point when a priiloader will not work?

    Priiloader is merely brick prevention more than anything else. It generally will preserve a path to HBC (for example: to uninstall an offending wad). But if you get a full brick, it won't help --- only BootMii/boot2 will help you locally. Otherwise if you have a NAND backup, time to PM one of our folks here who do that sort of work for a reasonable fee.

    Priiloader should work if you have a banner brick or some other kind of minor SM corruption. If you remove the SM or it IOS then you also remove Priiloader. A bad theme install can also remove/corrupt Prilloader.

    We were following this..Recovery menu Brick Fixing with SaveMiiFrii &autoboot disks

    Followed the path first and we end up to Install New System Menu.

    I'm not sure what you mean by that. Did you install the SM and still have a brick?

    He was installing a theme that was found from ytube. Then after he power cycled he got this green vertical lines.
    He does have priiloader and bootmii is ios.
    When he tried to hold reset - nothing is happening.
    My friend does NOT know about this forum until he called me about his issue.
    Now I think this post should go to Brick only thread.

    1. Never, ever follow a FAILTUBE guide (unless a wiihacks guide has it for a specific step).
    2. Never, ever fool with custom themes --- it requires at MINIMUM BootMii/boot2 and a NAND backup for good measure.
    3. If you have a NAND backup, you'll have to contact a NAND programmer (streamlinehd and krafter in the USA; Bad_Ad84 in the UK; Erikie in the Netherlands) to recover it.
    4. If no NAND in #3, time to junk it/part it out on Flea Bay... that's a very nice doorstop you have there (unfortunately).
