semi bricked help please
i think i have semi bricked my wii. i installed homebrew chanel and got through to the end. when the system rebooted i went to a black screen with the message
i can get into the homebrew channel by restarting the wii with the reset button held in at the same time. but from there i don't know what to do, i haven't got a usb loader installed for my backed up games on the harddrive.
any hel will be much apprieciated....
how did you brick? what was the last thing you did? hope you are not on 3.3 or 3.4
OMG, I think I bricked my wii 4.2E fully......:mad:
Just wanna know if there is anyway to recover it.
I followed the "full hacking guide for 4.2 system menus", up to partC, and it worked fine! Thanks here for the thing!
So I moved on trying to install preloader etc. Installed the ISO70 patched, then next step I accidentally uninstalled the ISO70. Then the hell came.
Wii power on with black screen, nother else, BTM works fine.
Can this be recovered?
The wii is quite new and still under warrently, if I just call them for a repair (of course cannot tell them it has been softmodded) would they found out when they fix? (i guess so?)
What is best thing to do here?
zhoufelix, Hi mate unfortunately you have bricked your wii:eek:. Did you install bootmii? and is it the new wiis? because if you have bootmii insatlled as an IOS you will have to try and find away to get to the HBC and launch bootmii as long as you a have a backed up NAND. If you cant then the only thing you can do is to ring up nintendo and get them to fix it. You can put more info on the site and see if more people can help. If i helped please press Thanks :)
I did have bootmii installed and backed up the nand.
What should i do with it?
PS: it is certainly under warrenty period (one month old wii), but i think nintendo do not cover any modded wii now, would they free fix mine?
If it's a new Wii then you probably have Bootmii/IOS which is not going to help you. The easy way to check is to power on the Wii and watch for a quick multiple DVD slot LED flash.
flash................................flash - no bootmii/boot2 (unrecoverable)
flash..flashflash........................ - bootmii/boot2 (recoverable)
Nintendo may not even check the Wii and the shop may just replace it for you, just dont tell them you modded it.
By the way uninstalling IOS70 is one of the most silly things you can do to a 4.2 Wii.
yes, actually the moment i mistakely uninstall it, I knew i screwed it, as it has been said never unintall any below 200..... as said, silly stupid mistake......
just checked DVD LeD, the blue light flash once at the moment i pressed the power button, then nother else....
what does this indicate?
I think you're gonna want to um contact nintendo, and just not tell them you modded it, cuz when you send a wii, i think it'd be dumb of them to send it back unfixed. If anything, they'll just probably uninstall all the homebrew and programs you got. But then again, they could like put a lock on your wii of some type so you won't be able to do this. Oh well, whatever.
Hey guys I have banner bricked my wii. I am currently running on 4.1u menu with wasabi dx chip installed. I can get to the recovery menu showing 4.1u on the bottom right of the screen. I do not have preloader installed, as before I tried installing the bad wad. I uninstalled it for god knows reason. But I can't seem to get UUDv4 to work. Or rather what autoboot disc should I try? Help is appreciated guys :) Oh and also, I was wondering. If I have a korean wii and I am running on english menu. Is it correct to have the modchip set to korean region?
Hello all I have read all of the posts concerning banner brick. Hear is my problem was on 3.4 pal ran soft mod had a few issues installing homebrew etc but managed in the end, also installed preloader and bootmii also saved nand backup and firmware updater 4.1, also installed wad manager. Everything working fine then installed usb loader tried to install then gave me system files corrupt message.
can get into homebrew etc with preloader.
Should I re install firmware updater 4.1 which I already have or should I download system menu 450 and install. Have uninstalled usb loader now but there isnt a wad file to remove as I didnt add this to the folder on the sd card.
Best way forward most appreciated
