I've Banner Bricked my Wii (Need help, desperately)
Okay, so I've banner bricked my Wii. I've identified it as banner bricked, because whenever I start it up I see the warning message and I push "A" and I hear a noise and nothing happens.
I have a SaveMii, and I just installed a DriveKey, but I haven't gotten anything to work yet. I was wondering if someone would kindly help me with this
I bricked it by installing a bad WAD file. So...If you have any other questions about the state of my Wii feel free to ask and I'll try to answer to the best of my ability to do so.
EDIT: I forgot to say, my system version is 4.2 U

Priiloader or BootMii/Boot2 installed? If not, can the DriveKey autoboot disks?
I do not have Priiloader, although before my Wii bricked I did install BootMii, but I do not have the files on my SD anymore, and I didn't do a NAND backup.
I don't think the DriveKey automatically autoboots discs, you need to configure it to do so, but to do so, you need to access the Wii Menu, which I can't do.
You can easily download the files for BootMii. (password is www.wiihacks.com)

Extract everything inside the pack I gave you to the root of your SD card, which must be formatted as FAT or FAT32. If BootMii is installed as Boot2,
BootMii should show up. If installed as an IOS, it will not show up. Simple as that.
Moved to the "Bricked Issues" section.
You must put the SD card with the folder 'bootmii' on it in your Wii, before you turn your Wii on.
If that doesn't do it, BootMii is installed as IOS.

I'm not up on modchips all that much but I believe you can by them already setup to autoboot. Other then that you will have to wait until a game disk comes out with a 4.3 update...... But out of curiosity try booting into maintenance mode by pressing + and - at the same time you press A at the Health Screen.
Huh? How would a Firmware 4.3 update remove a WAD/Channel? That only helps for full and semi brick issues, or am I wrong here?

Krafter: I'll try that.
EDIT: Kantar, that doesn't work.
