    if you have a modchip you can use recovery mode with a gamecube controller or savemii and then you can boot a wadmanager disc i think

    No, if IOS60 is corrupted the System Menu is not loaded at all, and you can't use maintenance mode, sorry [​IMG]

    i think he means the recovery mode with all directions on the gamecube d-pad pressed
    and not the maintenance mode which you can enter by pressinf + and - on the wiimote

    I'm pretty sure the same thing happened to me I remember the waninkoko's 4.0 updater stopping after installing ios55 and not doing 60 but it said it was successful...
    now I have no signal and I haven't been able to do the gamecube d-pad trick.

    Can't fix this. This btw is why I wrote my installer, it MAKES SURE IOS60 is installed correctly before installing the system menu onto it.

    so if IOS60 installation fails it installs the system menu using the ios60 that's not there thus bricking it?

    In my firmware updater, if IOS60 install fails, System Menu is not installed (it's the last title that gets installed).

    Same problem here with the black screen. I have a legacy Wiikey though. Could I use a savemii, and if so what other steps do I need to take? Thanks. [​IMG]

    Nope. If IOS60 failed to install your wii is dead. for good [​IMG].

    So using the "Waninkoko" 4.0 updater, there is no chance of getting bricked by IOS60 ?

    (Just so I'm clear)

    The only people I have heard who got bricked were those who did not read the readme file that said you need to have 300 or more empty blocks.

    I have used wanins upgrader in 2 different wiis and it run like a charm. No problems at all.
    Just make sure you have the 300ish empty blocks.
