    I recently tried to install a channel adn sure enough it bricked my wii. Can't get past the health screen. Is there anyway to unbrick it...I dont have preloader, starfall, bootmii, or savemii...I have a 3.2U FW with a wiikey...is there anyway to autoboot the wiikey disc to get to sd load so I can run wad manager? I was pointed to ask here at this forum, so hopefully someone can help... Thanks [​IMG]

    wiikey should be able to auto boot a disc.

    Find a disc with a 3.4 or 4.0 update on it and auto boot it

    That should fix it i think.


    someone correct me if im wrong

    how does he make a autoboot disc iso to burn that will load wad manager? because all he needs to do is uninstall 1 wad to get back...he made an animated channel and tested it ...got an icon brick b4 he knew he needed preloader! thanks guys!

    didnt twiizers make a boot disc iso you can add a dol to? for chipped wii's

    so being harris has a wiikey could he replace a main dol with wadmanager 1.4 dol and then autoboot that disc with wiikey?...remove the bad wad...reboot and good to go!

    Universal Unbrick Disc v2
    http://rapidshare.com/files/219259042/UUDv2.rar

    Universal Unbrick Disc is now on v2 and will work with Firmware 4.0. Additionally, you will not need a modchip, cIOS-CORE or Rescue Menu hacks to be installed.

    It will also work with the Original Rescue Menu and you only need a modded Original GC Controller and the cIOS249 installed. Thats all.

    I changed the game partition to run with IOS249 and its set to autoboot... so as long you have the cIOS249 installed and its a cIOS with cDIP module it will work.



    Then I updated the ticket and tmd to be named as UUD but I had to change the game partition, the iSO itself and the crypted name of the game too to be fully displayed as "Universal Unbrick Disc"

    And be sure you use an ORIGINAL GC Controller because we can't manage to boot into rescue menu with a 3rd-Party GC Controller.

    How to Use:

    - Extract and burn the image
    - Turn on Wii

    theres a vid of me using the same wad harris did ...and the brick and recovery removing it...so if he can get the Wiikey to boot the universal unbricker disc he can remove the WAD or does he need to make a WADMANAGER.ISO and use IT to uninstall the wad? (more likely i would have imagined) THANKS FOR THE HELP GUYS!

    Harris is a good guy and a great friend i hope someone can help him get this fixed [​IMG]

    If he can't get the Universal Unbrick Disc to boot up then Pink Fish will work with a mod chip!

    The modchip that I used did not come with autoboot set by default so I was a little worried that it wouldn't work. But I just poped the Pink Fish Disc in and it loaded right up. So yea, having his wiikey should be all he needs.

    look dont be stilly and update to 4.0 or 3.4 its more work

    Auto boot wiimusic 3.3 in the recovery menu and write 3.3 system menu to the wii

    Then use wad manager to install v290 menu 3.2 and ios30 1040

    Sure you could try the pink fish disk (my good friend Fellaw has a great guide)but pls make .rkb back up before you format the wii

    You will need a modchip and a game cube controller to unbrick this
