    yes, if his modchip can autoboot and a game with a newer firmware. Then he can save it. Or if he have Bootmii or Priiloader.

    Try it, there is now other way to see if autoboot is enabled.

    @hai_haifa : has your friend ever did a downgrade from 4.0 / 4.1 or 4.2? If yes then it's a full brick... normally the situation you describe doesn't cause a full brick, there is something else going on with your friend's wii...

    You have an out of region Semi Brick!!
    ---
    Your 3.2U got updated by Wii Sports Resort which I believe contains the System Menu 3.4E update!
    ---
    Use a NTSC region disc that contains an update higher than 3.4! To fix the problem!
    (Don't know what discs contain said update!)

    Use the savemiifrii method (google it!) to run the disc in the rescue menu and update!

    Hope this helps!
