    Is there a way to tell the firmware version on a semi-bricked Wii?

    Since "Wii Settings" is not accessible, is there another way to find the firmware version?

    Savemiifrii would show you the version. The other way is to find out the version of the disc you semi-bricked with.

    sorry i ve been flaming noobs all day. you can install ios60patched and a system menu 4,1 of your region anyway tho. this will cure the brick.

    I don't know how it got semi-bricked. I installed HBC a couple a few months ago to run a duplicate channel remover program. I have not needed to access Wii Settings since then.

    I need to know the firmware version because I plan to downgrade to 3.2 as a way to fix the semi-brick. (I have been thinking about doing that anyway). I am not sure if I don't have 4.2.

    semi brick happens when you do an out of region update. Because 4.2 does not exist on disks, you cannot have 4.2. either way installing ios60patched and after that a new system menu 4.1 should work

    Downgrading to 3.2 is not a very good way to fix a semi-brick. As Messie was gracious enough to point out, IOS60patched and Sys Menu 4.1 would fix it in a trice.

    Since I cannot have 4.2, is it safe to proceed with the 3.2 downgrade?
