    search the forum, all info is been posted multiple times, you will need a modchip if you get a banner brick on 3.3, also do you have th TP Hack, if NOT and you've banner bricked, say GOODBYE to that particular wii and throw it in the river....

    also get yourself a dam internet connection...or downgrade to 3.2 at your mates, get your files together read on a SD and your set, search again!

    you need to have a modchip and an autoboot of legend of zelda and wad manager on your sd card to remove the wad

    The starfall autoboot option helps too to recover at least from some bricks, as you can autoboot zelda with it. You have to prepare this before your wii is bricked.

    so if i have the zelda save game hack on my wii.. then that means that i have the tp hack right? (no need to do installation whatsoever right? just run the save game and move Link Backward(i have used the savegame provided in the softmodding for dummies package.. which when i run gives me a black screen asking to install the homebrew channel))? If i understand properly, then if i get a brick.. i need to get a modchip and have it autoboot zelda and that's it?
