    hi I accidentally banner bricked my wii and I didnt have a recovery tool installed on my wii.

    now i was wondering is it possible to start my wii on the second page of the wii (cause the bricked banner is on the first, and i have a wadmanager on page2) or is there an other way to fix my wii.

    im momentarely on wii 4.0e have the homebrew channel instaled but is also on page1.

    *edit*
    I forgot to mension that my wii is moded with a wiikey 1.9s.

    Yipe. I'm afraid its bad news. With what you have right now, no, no way to fix it. there is a device that may be able to...but i forget the name. Freemii? or something like that. Not sure if it can fix your situation though.

    Too bad you are on 4.0, that broke the twilight hack.

    EDIT: sorry, I just remembered how bannerbomb worked, it won't be able to help in the situation you are in.

    Unfortunately, I don't think there's anything you can do

    You could just try to send it to Nintendo of course. Just tell them there was a power failure while updating or something like that.

    It happens if you install a corrupted channel from a wad file.

    but really...you should of got preloader in there straight when you went to 4.0 you would of been fixed in 5mins.

    but retrospect, i dont know iv bannerbomb is gonna help since it needs the system menu to work..

    Hmm, I was wondering, since my wii is moded would it be possible for me to buy a SaveMii run a wad manager from disc and delete the corrupt wad? couse then the problem will be over (but i dont know if savemii work on 4.0:P)

    Location, location, location.
    with a modchip, maybe you can boot a Recovery Disk?
