    Yesterday, I made my own WAD, but I accidentally banner bricked my Wii. I searched the forums, but nothing I found can help me. I don't have a modchip, I'm on System menu version 3.3U, I don't have the Twilight hack installed, I have the Homebrew Channel Installed, and I have SaveMii. Is there any possible way to undo this brick from where I stand without buying a modchip? If so, could somebody please tell me how to do this? Thanks for any help.

    Only way to fix it is to get a game with a higher update then what your wii is in right now.

    How would that fix it? It was installed by a WAD, it's not a faulty System Menu.

    A new menu update won't save you. you will need to remove the wad, but I'm guessing you know that and yes you will need a chip.

    I suggest a no solder clip and chip combo.

    Don't tell people to install things if you are unsure, you could make a situation worse. If you post an opinion then use words like "think" so no one follows advise without double checking.

    I'm sure he meant, erm didn't mean it...

    One thing, again............"WHY" on earth did you F""k with custom banners when you aren't "safe and prepared"??

    You don't have the TP hack..?
    Not on v3.2 with "starfall patches"
    Don't have a chip


    (Savemiifrii wont help you as well)

    Genuine mistake, but messing with editing custom banners etc, leads to this "Problem" and now it's hard for you to recover, regret anything now...?

    Wont anyone ever "Learn" "YOU KNOW THE DANGERS!!"

    u need a modchip so that u can auto-boot a recovery disk or wad uninstaller

    but u said u had a "SaveMii" is that the device that boots directly into HBC9? If u can boot into the homebrew channel, just dload a wad uninstaller and boot it ...

    You're confusing SaveMii with BootMii.

    Well, it looks like I'll be getting a modchip, then, if it's really my only option. What is a good chip for a GC2-DMS drive with pins that are not cut that supports autoboot disks?

    all chips support autoboot, they just don't claim it, you can autoboot anything you want, games, applications made iso's [​IMG] but you can autoboot by patching your image through "bootme" an application downloadable from wiibrew.

    Good Look!

    Hope this is a lesson to all the others, we have seen many bricks past few days!

    Ok, thank you. I'll be ordering a modchip soon. Just to be clear, is the Wiikey a good one?

    Bump. I ordered my Wiikey yesterday, but now I'm reading and I hear that even THAT won't help me since I'm on 3.3 System menu? Could someone confirm or deny this please?
