recently i made some channels for my wii so that my gf doesnt have to go through steps to get to a launcher, and when i installed the wads, the ending result is a banner brick. i been doing alot of research on how to fix it, but i dont want to purchase a autoboot mod chip. but the biggest kicker is that i believe i did not install a preloader. So when i turn on the system i get the health and safety screen, but cant get to the system menu screen. to my understanding i will need a NGC controller to access recovery menu which i will pick up one tomarrow, but if theres another way please help.
thanks in advance.

im sure i did have bootmii installed, but i dont exactly remember what guide i did use as I set up my system a few years ago, but i fallowed it step by step, and this is only problem i have had with it. i got the system in 2008, so i dont think that should matter but the only thing i know is that it doesnt read CD-R/DVD-Rs and such, i been reading that bootmii should start up when one holds the reset button when powering on the system, i tried that and nothing happens.

No, you ALSO need an sd card with bootmii on it, and that's priiloader you're talking about, not bootmii. Bootmii starts no matter what if there is an SD card with the bootmii folder and an armboot.

    Guess you could fit one in there.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    The contacts are there, and the device already has charge control circuitry, but you have to buy and solder the battery yourself.

    If it has a USB port, then you could perhaps try connecting a power bank.

    It has USB-C.
