    hi all,

    I appear to have Banner Bricked my Wii with a dodgy WAD and have no preloader installed, i have managed to get to the recovery console using the savemiifrii trick with a GC controller but dont have a chip installed so i need a game i can rent with 4.0 on it. (apparently this will install 4.0 for me correct me if i'm wron g)

    Any help greatly appreciated!

    Im on 3.4 at the mo btw

    you want a 4.0 upgrade because you're in 3.4?
    You can make your own: take an iso and replace the sysetmmenu update with the 4.0 one using Wiiscrubber. To get the 4.0 systemmenu.wad use NUS downloader

    I get the Health and safty Message asking me to press A, i press A and then get a black screen with no further progress. Im on 3.4 at the moment. Didnt think i could load a custom disk because i dont have a mod chip to read the disks

    yep thats a banner brick
    updating wont help you. You need to uninstall the wad somehow

    edit: can you enter maintenance mode (hold + and - before pressing A) ?

    Big misunderstanding here

    My original post said: I'm not sure if its a banner brick, use an update
    After short research I changed it to: Yep its a banner brick, use an update
    Now I forgot to change the other part, so changed it again [​IMG]

    Ok thanks guys look like my only option is to get a mod chip and autoboot a wad manager to remove the dodgy wad

    Try backup disc trick, but you need a chip. It's mainly,

    1. Get twilight hack save to your wii using backup disc
    2. Boot a autoboot patched zelda
    3. Run wad manager or anytitle deleter to get rid of the offending wad

    First of all, you need a modchip to boot modified discs, if you had a full ios replacement pack (they came in various names) you may do without a chip...

    Can't locate but there are a few threads about the subject, search hint : backup disc

    ps: There is no update (to 4.0) that currently fixes crap installation of wads/themes or whatever though it doesn't mean there won't be in the future... Say if 4.1 contained such a fix (I don't think it will) it would take at least 6-8 months for the games to contain such an update...
