Does 4.0 still banner brick?

    Well?

    I thought I read someplace that instead of banner bricking 4.0 just showed the static with the ? in the middle, like some channels do on the SD screen.

    Haven't been able to find this anywhere else, so I'm asking to confirm/deny.

    I would have no idea man, but the thought of no banner brick would really please me

    Never heard of that before. But if it's true, that would be very interesting and cool.

    Mhh, I don't know. When I had my Wii breaked some hours ago I accidently also created a banner brick. What I do not know is, if I then was running on IOS36 or the 4.0-IOS60.

    I would also like to know the answer to this. Surely I'm not brave enough to test it out. The answer could only come from someone's experience. Hmm, why would this be? Would it be because of some fix in the system menu/ios60?

    ...

    [​IMG] Come on someone knows they want to find out if they are immortal or not by shooting themself. [​IMG] It would be fun.

    Reminds me of when 4.0 first came out.

    Hey does homebrew still work?
    Update and find out!
    Nope not me, forget that!
    I want to know but I don't want to know that badly [​IMG]

    How do you get a banner brick again? You get it from installing a wad that's not from your region? Well that's what I did and all it did was told me the channel could not be played.

    I believe it occurs when the wad contains an improperly formatted icon or banner image

    Installing a WAD with an invalid banner will do it....

    Cross-region won't hurt it.
