    Ok here's my situation

    I use to be on 3.2 with starfall

    Decided to update to waninkoko 4.1 but it didn't work then read I needed to update first to 4.0 (cause I was looking for a way to make my RB guitar and drum to work with RBBeatles only got the GH guitar to work from disc wasn't ready to switch to usbloader yet don't have a drive)

    So I looked for a tutorial and found the Wii Brew one

    so first installed waninkoko 4.0 worked fine, then after reboot went to install ios60 patched but forgot to deny the wiistore part, when I came out of homebrew channel my screen was black so in other words BRICK same thing when I reboot.

    Of course Starfall is useless since I just updated and I tried to access the recovery menu with the gamecube port 4 press up-down-rgt-lft all together but it won't work maybe because I only have a GC wavebird

    Now I ran out of option!

    Well I still have the send it to Nintendo option (I still have a month of warranty, would be the third time I send it) but there is no way I can delete my neo gamma channel and homebrew channel so I'm afraid they will void my warranty

    Since I'm now stuck and ran out of option and can't find anything on the net or here, well I'm posting here asking for help

    So if anybody has a solution or advise please let me know

    Big thanx

    Since you're fully bricked Nintendo won't be able to see anything that's on your Wii. You'll be okay

    really cool, that means I'll get an extra year of warranty (third time)

    otherwise nothing I can do on my side? to access the recovery menu

    You can access it all you like, but you won't be able to autoboot anything since you no longer have that patch applied to your system menu.

    Just tell Nintendo that the power went out while updating. Again.

    you are sure they can't see anything, don't they have ways to see what is on the drive?

    No, they can't tell what you have on the drive, all they can see is the black screen. Also how does installing IOS61 brick the system? it isn't needed to run the Wii right?

    Actually if they were desperate, they could run it through a NAND programmer and have a look.
    Though the chances of them doing that are slim to nil.
