All righty folks looks like we have another bad case of a banner bricked wii due to a corrupted .wad file. I've read extensively the other threads about this problem such as http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=117962 The problem for me, however, is that I don't have a modchip of any kind, nor any fall back safeguard app such as Starfall or the like. I pretty much only have HBC and Wad Manager so I'm pretty sure I have an unfixable bricked wii. Would it be safe to send my wii in to Nintendo to get it fixed? After reading http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=117...t=0&start=0 it sounds like they won't fix it but would it be worth to try? What will they do just send back the bricked wii? This isn't the first time I had to send in my wii, the first time Nintendo just replaced me with a completely new wii, although then it had nothing to do with homebrew and .wads- just a genuine faulty system. I'm running Wii System Menu 3.3Uv2 so I don't believe ordering a modchip will help. The one thing I haven't tried is savemii but I doubt that will do me any good due to no Twilight Hack. I am fully prepared to pay for repairs I just want to know if they will even do that if I have HBC. Thanks for your help.
