    updated 3.2 to 4.1 still banner brick

    OHH WII GOODSS! oh wii gods please i implore your help. help this poor dumb soul recover his precious little wii.



    i had a launch wii, installed homebrew channel (and other stuff like wads and ios that i had no idea what was for) via twilight hack, was able to play backup games and non-US region backups. i updated firmware last june i think. then i was playing my backup games until my screen went blank. i restarted wii, got to the health warning screen, press A, then black screen--banner brick.

    so i get gamecube controller, press all 4 buttons, get to a black screen that says 3.2 (US) at the bottom. then i get an original new super mario brothers disc and insert it and after a couple of minutes i see the wii channels "slide appear then disappear" and black screen again. i reset the console and go into recovery again to see my NEW firmware is 4.1 (US). so new super mario brothers updated my firmware but didnt recover my console because i still am in a banner brick.

    what now?

    i tried downloading all sorts of recovery discs that didnt work and tried putting all sorts of software in the SD card that didnt work either.

    i have no idea what trucha bug is, dont have modchip, dont have savemii (but have savemiifrii).

    do i ABSOLUTELY need drivekey to boot the recovery disks? i read on other places that some wiis can boot recovery disc with gamecube controller.

    H E L P!!!

    Fixed by filling memory

    This is how I fixed my banner brick today:

    Problem: Installed bad wad created with WADder
    Banner brick type: black screen

    System: Wii v4.0u
    Drivechip: YAOSM v2 (not autoboot)
    Trucha bug: Not available
    Bootmii: Not installed
    Preloader: not installed
    Third party GC controller (I.con)

    I could not:
    Use any preloaded (not installed)
    Boot the Universal Nintendo disk (or any custom disk)
    Boot any disk that been scrubbed/trucha signed
    Boot SSBB NTSC to perform the smashstack
    Boot any original wii disk

    What I could do:
    I downloaded Bootmii ( Wii BootMe - WiiBrew )
    This tool let you modify games ISOs so they autoboot
    I managed to autoboot Super Smash Bros Brawl PAL
    I could not use the smashstack bug with this version, but it is a great game to use to fill your Wii memory.

    So this is that I done:
    I played a few games, tried a few things like stage builder, and also save tons of replays.. but all this took so much time. (12+ replays to fill 1 block) I had to find something else. So I noticed that you can take snapshots during the game. 1 picture = 1 block. That was perfect. Within a few minutes I filled my Wii memory up to 99%.

    Now what... I read on another post that certain games will bring you to the data management screen if the wii is full. such as the series MySims.
    I got a copy of this game, made it autoboot then started it.
    It brought me to the data management screen but I ran into another issue:
    I could not use the banner bomb to restore my Wii.
    As soon as I was entering the banner screen, the Wii was freezing right away, probably for the same reason that my wii wasn't starting.
    I could still access the save files so I could have probably tried to find Lego Indiana Jones and attempt to run the Indiana Pwns exploit, but I didnt have this game and something else caught my attention: the Wii setting screen was available. So I went there and used the "format Wii memory" option.
    I lost all my stuff but now my Wii is working.

    So here are the basic steps:

    1. Boot in the recovery menu to start an autoboot game (SSBB), either with savemii, or with a GC remote
    (I found that the proper way to successfully do this is by turning off the Wii, hold the 4 directions on the GC then power on the wii by inserting the disk in)

    2. Fill the Wii memory with game snapshots

    3. Try booting TheSims kingdom, if the game don't prompt you do go to the management screen, this means that the wii is NOT full enough. Stop the game and try to fill it more with another game. (If you played the game before, it will most likely not work as the game don't let you manage the saves, it only overwrite old or create new ones. )

    4. When you successfully get to data management, there you can fix the wii with banner bomb, Indiana Pwns, or Wii format.

    Have fun

    for what i know, the wii dvd drive won't read back disc (burnt disc) even when u in recovery mode ,so u will need a modchip i recommend drivekey is easy to install

    Addition............(29-07-2009)

    Managed to get the firmware upgarded to 3.4 via wii sports resort, still nothing after that........

    YES i have the solution................
    if you brick your wii then find the receipt, phone up 'GAME' and tell them its just stopped working, they say 'OK bring it in and we will replace it'
    I now have a working Wii with another years ticket on it
    how do i find a download for any disc to unbrick my wii, i updated to v4.0 and have a drivekey fitted, now only a black screen, no signal, please help.. cheers

    Probably not as a Banner Brick is brought about by installing a bad wad and presents itself after the Health and Safety screen.

    So after your first reset everything worked great?

    Probably worth posting a new thread with more information about what you did exactly running up to the black sceenin the Bricked Issues section.

    okay you and i are almost on the same boat.

    the difference is that you have a modchip. does your modchip allow you to boot (or play) backups? if so then that is what im missing. maybe if i install a drivekey i would be able to play backups--AND THEN be able to fill my wii's storage enough to make it go into data management.

    does the drivekey do pretty much the same thing as your modchip or does your modchip have specific abilities to make you play backup games as opposed to drivekey?

    Need some assistance - Possible Banner bomb/preeloader issue ??

    I recently received a wii that my younger sister tried to install HBC on and was unsuccessful using the Bannerbomb method to a point, She managed to get the HBC channel running but none of her files were showing up when launched it and also she couldnt play any backups on it either but you could see a loader - Neogamma 7, the one with the chalk style lettering banner on the channel view

    So she shipped it to me not telling me this till NOWWWWW!!!
    I received the wii and went about just deleting the channels of the HBC and the NEOGAMMA 7 that she installed thinking this would eliminate the files on the machine making it open for a new install of some kind.

    I then went on the site and used this method to install this mod
    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html
    halfway through it I ended up getting an error in reference to "system files are corrupt see owners safety manuel for troubleshooting" I guess this is a partial brick... correct ?

    Now i am at this point of trying to figure out how to remove all the crap thats on this console and just go with the latest and greatest methods to get HBC installed and a backup loader installed. Would it be of any use to me to use the UUDv2 to unbrick my wii or should i follow the method mentioned on this thread Im lost and i neeed some help if someone can help me id really apprecaite it cus i dont want to mess this machine up any more then it already is at the moment any suggestions would be really helpful
