So I guess it's a semi-brick
While I don't know exactly what a semi-brick entails, I think my situation fits the mold. This probably happened sometime last week, but I just noticed it Sunday because I don't play commercial games much. The problem with my Wii is that it boots normally, it just won't load anything. Not a disc, not the Shop Channel, not a WiiWare game. Nothing loads. Luckily, I have BootMii installed so I can still access the homebrew channel. All my homebrew works fine, and here's what I don't get: So does launching commercial games via Gecko. All my discs and channels (except the Nintendo and Shop channel) still work fine, but they won't load through the Wii menu. Anyone know why this would happen? Or how to fix it? I'm running 4.2U.
