Thread: semi-brick (chipped)

  1. #1

    semi-brick (chipped)

    Hi, sorry for creating a new thread. i was going around the site and also the 'net for info on how i can fix my chipped wii and just got confused

    anyway. here's what happened to my Wii. I bought it 2nd hand and the seller says that it's already chipped (games can be launched from the disc channel)

    I put in a copy of Punchout (a backup) and it asked me to update. I accidentally pressed yes and after updating I was able to play the game normally. but the next day when I was about to change the time on my Wii, I can't access it and it just shows me an Opera error. (sins of a noob. yes. Im a noob in Wii homebrew scene)

    I'm not sure what version I was using prior to the Punchout update.
    I still have my Homebrew Channel but can't access the Wii settings.

    Can you provide a step by step procedure on how can I resolve this?

    Thanks in advance!

    Punch out installs 3.4 but it sounds like you installed an out of region update. You need to re-install the correct system menu for your region and its IOS.

    3.4U SytmsMenu is likely what u need
    after successful recovery, u could proceed Firmware_updater_4.0/4.1 at wish. Not to up 4.2u, for sure !

    according to System Menu - WiiBrew, 3.4U is IOS50 v4889?

    a much simpler solution is available ....
    load Wii_Sports_Resort_USA and let the disc to proceed update for u.... the semibrick will be gone and leaving u 4.0U. why not ?

    ps. ShadowSonics has a clear and nice thread "SystemMenu & IOS", which summarized all the info u might need. why u've to go far for wiibreee ?

    i was able to grab the needed wads (using shadow's guide).
    now what's the next step? do i install RVL-WiiSystemmenu-v385 first or IOS50-64-v4889? or it doesn't matter? thanks!

    Both. The IOS is required to run the system menu and the system menu is...well...the system menu.

    Install the IOS first.
    Sysmenu 4.1U / cIOS38rev14 / Preloader v0.30 / BootMii/boot2 / USB Loader GX / 320 GB Iomega HDD
