    Thanx for the answer, amigo!

    Well, alas, if it's more sinister - I even don't know what to do.

    So, everything was the following.

    I ALREADY run lots of games using the custom 4.0 FW (from the shop it was 3.4E), so it seemed to me perfect.

    In fact everything was just great, i did not meet any errors or smth...

    I just downloaded couple of isos like Ferrari Challenge, Conduit, smth. about nutrition ( ) and some game called blox smth_like_that... So I used the wad-manager 1.4 to create channels for them using this software (it always worked before for other games earlier) Cluster's Home Page ; all channels were installed without any problem. I pressed "house" button to reset the Wii and from that moment I have this (see the youtube video earlier).

    Maybe the easiest way is to bring it back to service? The Wii is just 20-days old...
    Or, the SaveMii can help anyhow?

    Ok but your description of events doesn't really tie up with the result.

    Your custom theme, seeing as it worked for some time, can be pushed to the back burner in the culprit stakes for now.

    A Banner brick, typically, will result in an error screen after the health warning screen. Messing with wads and channels is the prime candidate for banner bricks. Channels will install perfectly even when they are bad, that's the trouble.

    Before embarking with messing around with wads did you have precautions such as preloader and bootmii installed to protect yourself in the eventuality of a problem?

    Hold reset as you power your Wii on. Does anything happen?

    Check for blue light flashing twice in 1 second (approx) when you power on. Does it do this?

    Savemii can help banner bricks. Hold out until it arrives and see if you get the recovery screen when you power up. This will be mostly black but have a number such as 4.1(Eur) in the bottom right corner.

    Thanks for answer,

    About banner brick, btw... i have read that there are 2 different types, when it freezes after the health message with black screen or when it gives this "corrupted" info... that's why i thought that my case is the 1st.

    So, I was such a fool and did NOT install any preloader/bootmii on my system... I thought, if it works - than it will work forever. Alas.

    Since english is not my "motherboard" language i did not quite understood this "can be pushed to the back burner in the culprit stakes for now". Sorry, what did u mean?

    And I am leaving my work now , when I will reach home - i'll do all the things you proposed and let you know!

    Many thanx already! Hope the problem will be solved. A SaveMii has been shipped today from Australia... I don't know how long does it takes to come to France usually

    Woops. I sat and watched your video and expected an error screen, when it didn't appear I only remembered you had a black screen.

    Probably be a while from Aus to France.

    Did you say you tried the Gamecube controller hack. Up, Down, Left, Right in Port 4 at Wii power on?

    Well, btw, just tried your suggestion with "Holding reset as I power my Wii on" - nothing happens, I mean, everything's just like in video: "HEALTH"--> "A" --> "ding-ding-ding" --> black screen

    Blue light flashes only ONCE

    I just burned a stuff called "Universal Unbrick Disc v2" - , turned on Wii, inserted it in - nothing changed

    The GC controller? I don't have one. But I can buy it, I guess... Should it be some special controller or just a usual one? (like that Dreamgear manette iGlow Wireless pour Game Cube et Wii - Accessoire Console de jeux la Fnac for ex?). And, as far as I understood, I have to upgrade it somehow... isn't it?

    Thanx in advance

    Savemii = Gamecube controller mod

    Savemii does the same thing as Gamecube controller hack. If you can't wait for savemii consider buying a GC controller, it doesn't have to be genuine Nintendo. You will need to open the controller to enable all directions pressing.

    Ah, ok, got it ...

    But I'd better wait for SaveMii, since it's already been dispatched.
    So, you mean, when it will arrive, I just:
    1. plug it into the GC memory card slot
    2. Start the Wii
    ... then?

    There will be kinda menu or smth?

    And what should I do after all - the goal is to erase all the wad chanels?

    Thanks

    Wait one minute.

    There's me going making assumptions again. As you've posted on the Unbrick your Wii (Banner Brick) I crazily assumed you'd read the thread tutorial as pictured on every page.

    And I quote somehting which might pertinent...

    Ok let's get started! Here's what you need:

    1. ModChip - I used a DriveKey you can get one here l. Very easy to install. No soldering.
    2. Nintendo's Offical Wii BackUp Disk v1.31 - Download in TURDinc downloads section. Downloads - PS2 Xbox 360 Nintendo Hacking Modding
    3. An offical GameCube controler ( needs to be slightly modded ) guide here.

    YouTube - SaveMiiFrii - Free SaveMii

    Or SaveMii, the Wii recovery dongle found here. SaveMii - Introducing SaveMii, the Wii recovery dongle
    NOTE: The modded GC controller does the same thing as SaveMii except it's free if you already have a GC controller.
    2. Ok the backup disc/unbrick disc is no problem
    3. This'll be your savemii

    But what about 1?

    Oh... yes I have read it of course... But because it's been written by some MattMan I did not know it was ... you (?). I read your notion that all you need to have is a SaveMii dongle (I must have been mistaken).

    So... I still need this chip to be installed. This means, I will have to open my Wii, right? Means no more warranty...

    And... as well I need to download this ISO of Nintendo's Offical Wii BackUp Disk v1.31? But I have upgraded my Wii until custom 4.0... This means it won't work. Or the UUD will work?

    Och.... sorry mate, i'm overloaded :/

    But if u still have some patience - I am very thankful for your help, anyway.

    P.S. Maybe the easiest way is to give it back to the shop? How will they understand that it's been hacked?

    It wasn't written by me. I think you'd purchased your Savemii dongle before you even posted. Now I re-read your post and I can you don't have a drivekey. Anyway no harm done.

    To be honest I'd return it to the shop rather than open it up. There's no guarantee that using savemii/modchip will actually work anyway.

    Only 20 days, you might not even get many questions.

    Just tell them the screen stays black or something, play it dumb.
