not Wad manager 1.4 or 1.5 work? selecting ios36 to use? if not i m running out of ideas... any way maybe someone else has an idea...
you can just return it to N for repair, its gonna cost you around 85$... yet there might also be other ways, so don't give up on it just yet
What about cboot2, this cunning little app loads Wad manager direct from the Wii boot. Worth a shot, not sure if it's GC compatible, if not then there's a GC compatible dol in my mediafire. wad-manager-1.4.Sorg.wiiNinja.mod2.rar with which you should be able to replace the existing one in the cboot2.
Beware this replaces the normal bootmii folder with custom ones so make sure you have a backup copy on your PC to swap back over. If you do mess up then I've got a copy of my bootmii folder in my mediafre.
Click my sig for my mediafire.
