    This can recover from ANY SYSTEM MENU RELATED brick that can be recovered from on System Menu 3.2
    The methods stated are NOT always the best or easiest [​IMG]. You can test if this applies to you by starting recovery mode (savemii, savemiifrii, starfall, etc) and seeing if 3.2 is displayed. If it is, this can help.

    Meh we basicly dont need one.

    Full brick = Bad installation of the "RVL-WiiSystemmenu-v257.wad" Or 258, 259, depending on region and system menu... (Unless bootmii could save this...)
    Semi brick = Bad installation of a channel, boot menu, some other things...

    youre not using our standardized nomenclature....semi-brick does not mean what you have said in our context, and full brick simply means there is no known recovery.

    icefire will probably actually differentiate between banner bricks, opera bricks, corruption bricks, etc, in a similar fashion to how they have done on savemii site. if you do a good job, I look forward to the visual.

    its good, the problem I see is this:

    on preloader side, you basically say:

    "preloader hacks remover doesnt fix brick?
    install new system menu"

    problem I see: what if we're talking banner brick?
    you now don't have starfall or preloader or anything...
    new system menu, aka: getting rid of preloader, should be the thing you try after everything else.

    It doesn't even make any sense, what is box number one supposed to mean? Am I answering yes or no to the preloader being installed or uninstalled.

    @icefire

    Where does "IronRecovery" (hold all 4 directions on GC pad #4 with autoboot WadManager) figure into your flowchart? Will you add it?

    IronRecovery is the very bottom (savemii can be savemiifrii or whatever).
