    ok so i just got guitar hero smash hits and put it in my wii. it said to update so i figured why not. i was on wii firmware 3.2u because i downgraded (twice). and of course i have the homebrew channel installed so yea. Also last time when a game asked me to do this it was call of duty world at war and when i upgraded that it didnt even upgrade my system so i figured the same thing would happen. it didnt. know my wii dosent work. when i try to turn it on it just stays at a black screen and nothing works. theres no sound, no picture nothing. also my controllers wont connect. i called nintendo but they said to just ship it to them and they would fix it for free but im worried they will find the homebrew channel on it and get all pissed at me and stuff so please if you know how to fix this i really need help

    try savemiifrii if it boots into recovery mode, try sticking in the game Punchout and see if it updates your Wii, its a long shot but might work. if it does work your Wii will be updated to 3.4 but it could save your Wii

    Well i guess your only option is to send it into Nintendo.
    They won't get pissed off but when you get it back it won't have any wads, it won't have the homebrew channel, no cios' installed, any other homebrew and it will be updated to 4.0. just use bannerbomb to hack it again though so you dont have many worrries.

    Could have sworn it was an article posted here

    I've heard of cases where people send in their Wii and get it back with the homebrew channel still installed. When I had to send mine in they didn't even update the firmware.

    that was for hardware repairs under warranty, that when the homebrew channel was installed, was void so the repair wasn't free
    in this case it doesn't apply, because this happened by update from a nintendo game, I bet that even if you had a modchip installed and you sent it in (i don't see any need to do so) they would fix it for you free of charge
