    Yes, so long as you have twilight hack savegame installed on the wii - it can save you.

    You just need to make an autobooting copy of zelda - use this -> http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Wii_BootMe

    Actually, I'm not sure that you'll even need to use savemii free. I think if you are banner bricked, you can still launch autobooting discs from the black screen.

    This is all assuming, of course, that you have a mod chip. If not, it can't help you.

    yes i have a chip (wiikey) but i know 3.3 does NOT have the turcha bug and wouldn't the autoboot thing have to singe it ?? or is that not a problem??
    also is there any outer info you could give me on the preloader?

    You don't have to trucha sign a disc to make it auto booting.

    As I said above - if you get a copy of zelda, make it auto booting... insert it on the black screen - it should start the game, allow you to run twilight hack.

    Then you can just boot wad manager off your SD card (rename it to boot.dol / boot.elf as appropriate and put it in the root) and remove the troublesome wad.

    You won't be able to install preloader on your wi in its current state - and IMO it's more risky than its worth. I'm waiting for bootmii.

    It's worth pointing out that if you go up to 3.4 recovering is much more tricky! Your wii will remove twilight hack every time it is rebooted - so even with an autobooting copy of zelda you won't be able to access twilight hack.

    You can, apparently still recover using the 'pink fish' disc by removing all user data from your wii - but this is pretty risky/tricky/dodgy.

    well luckily I'm still at 3.3 (thinking of going to 4.0{pro wait for bootmii})
    but good to know there a way for 3.4
    have you tried using the usb loader channels .. if so what are the chance of banner bricks (or any other) with them , because that's the main reason i want to know all this
    thank you for all the info.
