    This guide will help you unbrick your Wii if you installed a bad .wad file aka (Banner Brick). I banner bricked my v3.4 Wii awhile ago and was unable to find very much info on how to fix this problem. After hours and hours of searching I found a few bits and peices of information mostly for v3.2 witch did not help me one bit, so I decided to write this guide to maybe help soomeone else who Banner Bricked there Wii on v3.4. 3.4 is kinda tough because you can't use things like Starfall or preloader or even the Twilight hack to get things back in order. So if you find yourself in this position then this guide is for you. If your on a lower firmware there are other things that can be done to get you out of this with the right measures in place but this method should also work on lesser firmware versions.

    NOTE: 4.0 Users are unable to boot the Offical Nintendo Disc. On 4.0 I was able to boot this Universal-UnbrickDisc released! Universal-Unbrick Disc v2 - which if you can get to boot would actually be better since you can just delete the .wad that caused the problem rather than deleting everything.


    Defination of Banner Bricked Wii - You installed a bad .wad (channel) file or tried to edit the banner images in a existing .wad file. Your system boots up and after you push A at the Health & Safety warning screen you get a black screen or system files currupt error message.




    There are 2 ways that I know of to get this repaired as of this writing.


    1. Return Your Wii to Nintendo for repair. Not the best idea, if your Wii's warranty is up it will cost you a good chunk of cash plus when they return it to you it will most likely be returned with all your hacks removed and updated to the latest firmware leaving you homebrew-less..
    2. Get a modchip. Getting a modchip is a much cheaper and safer way to go. I purchased a DriveKey modchip for around 50.00 shipped and as of this writing it is compatable with all Wii's.




    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.

    Step 1. Install your modchip, if you have a DriveKey, there's a good guides on the forum here (which will be linked asap)
    Step 2. Extract the .iso from Nintendo's Offical Wii BackUp Disk v1.31.rar that you downloaded from TURDinc. and burn it onto a DVD -R disk.
    Step 3. Plug your modded GC controller into port 4 on your Wii.
    Step 4. Turn on your Wii and boot into Recovery mode using your modded GC controller to press all 4 directions on the digi pad at the same time. You need the correct timing to boot into the Recovery mode. Best way is to start pressing all 4 directions repeditly as soon as you turn the Wii on. If done correctly you should see a black screen with your firmware version in the lower right corner of the screen. If your on v3.2 or lower you will only see a black screen, thats normal.



    Step 5. Put in your burned copy of the Wii BackUp Disk v1.31 and in a few seconds you should see something like this.




    Step 6. Select Delete All - This will return your Wii somewhat back to the way it was when you first baught it (does not effect firmware version). You will need to reinstall your HomeBrew. Most importantly it deletes the offending .wad
    Step 7. Enjoy your unbricked Wii!!

    I appreciate your hard work and honesty in this community. Our wii crashed with Mario Galaxy immediately went to black screen then now turns on with Blue screen and No Signal floating all over the screen The DVD drive works the on is green and eject button works cannot rest. I think this is past all the information you have posted, as we cannot read anything that goes in DVD or mod. The wii has been soft Mod

    So does this work or not? I am thinking about trying it but dont want to waste my money if it does not work. I bricked my wii and now i can just go to preloader. When I choose main menu I get the error message. I have ver 4 and just the soft mods. Any help would be appreciated

    I'll post an update when my Drivekey arrives if it does. So far, all my research says it will work - but won't know for sure till I try it.

    Hey, I just got a banner brick because I stupidly installed a .wad I made when I thought I had bootmii installed. I have a 4.0u Wii and I believe to have all of the proper cIOS's.

    The one problem I am facing is getting the Universal Unbrick Disk v2 on a dvd (btw, does is matter if the dvd is - or +?). I can't seem to burn it on there! Is the iso supposed to be 4.7gb? Do I need a bigger dvd?

    Also, any help or tips would be greatly appreciated. For Example, should I use the Last Chance Unbrick Disk if all else fails and what exactly does it do?

    Thanks for all of the hard work
