Hmm... "Banner Bricked" 4.1U Wii? Please help!
I'm really hoping you can recommend me the right path to take to fix my Wii.
I have a Wii bought on launch day and many moons ago I soft-modded it with a custom ios, homebrew channel, and a couple disk loaders.
Recently to get NSMB Wii working I installed a USB-loader and formatted a USB-stick and got it to work. Played it for 2 weeks, tried turning on the Wii after a couple of days, and...
Health and Safety screen. No option to "press A."
Wii remotes turn on and are recognized, but I can't get to the menu.
I read up about it on this site and decided this was called a "Banner Brick."
I was able to boot into the screen that shows 4.1USA in the bottom right-hand corner.
So I downloaded a few Universal Unbrick disks, "Last Chance Unbrick disk," and even the "official Nintendo recovery disk," but when I try to load them from the "4.1USA" screen, the disk just spins for 2 seconds and then stops.
I tried loading games like Twilight Princess official disk or Smash Bros official disk. It goes from the "4.1USA" screen to a black screen, but the disk just keeps spinning and never loads the game.
Please tell me; What are my options? Buy a modchip? Send it to Nintendo? Some other software method I haven't tried yet?
