you need a modchip/cioscorp to autoboot homemade discs, i take it you have no preloader? Your best bet is to get yourself a chip...
Heres my situation. I banner bricked my wii installing the gamma beta wad that was supposed to run wii sports resort.
I've managed to get into restore mode using a modded gamecube controller. Unfortunately every Wad Installer autoboot disc I've found on the net won't run. I've used ImgBurn to burn the discs just like any other wii game and the same media, so that shouldn't be the problem. I can hear the dvd drive reading the disc, then nothing. I'm just stuck with the 4.0 on the lower right corner.
At this point I'm about to write off the wii as bricked since I can't get any disc to autoboot in restore mode. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Yep no preloader, I was thinking that may be the case since I put in a purchased disc that did autoload, but only to a black screen. I guess unless I get a chip I'll have to wait till the next firmware update by nintendo and buy a game with an update on it.
Is it confirmed that cioscorps work with it i haven't read any where about that....
This time i made sure....
I'm gonna help you
I have a modchip and none of the autoboot discs I've tried will boot from the 4.0 recovery screen.
One more question, when Nintendo releases a firmware update, and I put the purchased disc in that has the update on it, will the recover screen go from the 4.0 on the bottom right to a message asking if I want to update my firmware (and essentially erase the screwed up wad packages)?
I just want to be sure this wii is recoverable otherwise I may just buy a new one
Thanks for your help!
There is a video on youtube of someone using savemii or savemiifrii to do the update. Screen goes from version X to black screen for a while, then version Y shows up.
I too am hoping a 4.1 disc comes out (Sports Resort?) and will do a fresh install of the system menu + whatever...
