updated 3.2 to 4.1 still banner brick
OHH WII GOODSS! oh wii gods please i implore your help. help this poor dumb soul recover his precious little wii.
i had a launch wii, installed homebrew channel (and other stuff like wads and ios that i had no idea what was for) via twilight hack, was able to play backup games and non-US region backups. i updated firmware last june i think. then i was playing my backup games until my screen went blank. i restarted wii, got to the health warning screen, press A, then black screen--banner brick.
so i get gamecube controller, press all 4 buttons, get to a black screen that says 3.2 (US) at the bottom. then i get an original new super mario brothers disc and insert it and after a couple of minutes i see the wii channels "slide appear then disappear" and black screen again. i reset the console and go into recovery again to see my NEW firmware is 4.1 (US). so new super mario brothers updated my firmware but didnt recover my console because i still am in a banner brick.
i tried downloading all sorts of recovery discs that didnt work and tried putting all sorts of software in the SD card that didnt work either.
i have no idea what trucha bug is, dont have modchip, dont have savemii (but have savemiifrii).
do i ABSOLUTELY need drivekey to boot the recovery disks? i read on other places that some wiis can boot recovery disc with gamecube controller.
H E L P!!!
umbrick, restore or uud disc
how do i find a download for any disc to unbrick my wii, i updated to v4.0 and have a drivekey fitted, now only a black screen, no signal, please help.. cheers

I recently received a wii that my younger sister tried to install HBC on and was unsuccessful using the Bannerbomb method to a point, She managed to get the HBC channel running but none of her files were showing up when launched it and also she couldnt play any backups on it either but you could see a loader - Neogamma 7, the one with the chalk style lettering banner on the channel view
So she shipped it to me not telling me this till NOWWWWW!!!
I received the wii and went about just deleting the channels of the HBC and the NEOGAMMA 7 that she installed thinking this would eliminate the files on the machine making it open for a new install of some kind.
I then went on the site and used this method to install this mod
halfway through it I ended up getting an error in reference to "system files are corrupt see owners safety manuel for troubleshooting" I guess this is a partial brick... correct ?
Now i am at this point of trying to figure out how to remove all the crap thats on this console and just go with the latest and greatest methods to get HBC installed and a backup loader installed. Would it be of any use to me to use the UUDv2 to unbrick my wii or should i follow the method mentioned on this thread Im lost and i neeed some help if someone can help me id really apprecaite it cus i dont want to mess this machine up any more then it already is at the moment any suggestions would be really helpful
