    It happened after installing a USB Loader Fowarder Channel that I modified with WADer (only changed the name just to see how it works) with WAD Manager 1.3.
    Homebrew Channel, Twiligth Hack and USB Loader were perfectly functional. Preloader or Starfall were not installed (shit, I know).

    The system is v3.2U updated to 4.0 with Waninkoko's updater (and worked great).
    It's chipped but I don't know the model (loads Wii and GC games, NTSC or PAL).

    I get the Safety Warning and after pressing A freezes in a black screen (Banner Brick if I'm not mistaken)

    I already tried to load Recovery Mode (with + & - ) and it fails, it said that the files are corrupted.
    Tried with a GC Controller SaveMiiFrii and nothing happens (not official, opened apart to make sure it was pressing all the buttons).
    Tried burning autoboot AnyTitleRemover and autoboot WAD Manager and it fails to load, said that the disk was screwed.

    Do you have any other ideas? I'm kind of desperate here...

    Those guides say that you need to use an official GC controller but the OP says he is not using an official one. Could that be his problem?

    Good, the problem seems to be my GC Controller, it's 3rd Party, I'll ask a friend that has an original if he lends me his. Now I'm out of DVD-R, I'll have to wait until monday, maybe is the brand I'm using... Sony DVD+R and Verbatim DVD-R are supposed to be good, right?

    Thanks for the help, I'm more relaxed now. I'll keep you updated.

    Did you do the next step after using waninkoko's installer? Introducing trucha bug into IOS 60?

    To ask it in another way, were you able to copy channels to sd and play them from there?

    If answer to the either of these questions are "no" then you are in trouble.

    ps: You don't need recovery mode in your situation, your chip should autoboot the disc on the health and warning page... unless you have an older crap chip like D2CKey or D2C Pro...

    Just did a few tests,

    My system is : 3.2E -> 4.0E upgraded using waninkoko's installer, then ios 60 patched for trucha...

    Here is the tests I've done
    1. Menu on IOS 60, Autoboot wadmanager on health and warning page...
    Result : displays An error has occurred. Press the eject button blah blah...

    2. Menu on IOS 60, Boot into recovery menu... insert wad manager autoboot disc
    Result : does nothing, version info stays intact

    3. Menu on IOS 30, Autoboot wadmanager on health and warning page...
    Result : disc boots

    4. Menu on IOS 30, Boot into recovery menu...
    Result : Version info disappears as soon as disc is tried being read.. then nothing

    I have a wiikey2 chip, I already have trouble with reading discs so my tests may not be the actual results but the 3rd case suggests that there is some kind of extra protection regarding autoboot discs or trucha stuff...

    Yeah, I had noticed that too. Only the HBC disk boots correctly (if the title id is modified). Maybe it's a better-built ISO?
    Download the HBC iso for 4.0 here, open it using WiiScrubber and replace main.dol with the WAD Manager DOL. It should work.
    You can also try this ISO from Bushing, its DOL only boots the Homebrew Channel.

    Hi, i have roughly the same problem and i dont know, what i have to do now. i have installed a crap wad and now i have a banner brick. TP Hack is installed, but not starfall or preloader and i have no modechip in my wii ..... i can start the recovery menu by holding the 4 buttons on the GC controller, then it shows mit the version => 3.4[EURO]

    do i have a chance, to repair my wii ? Someone told me, to buy Mario Power Tennis, or another game, that have a higher Version.

    Or have i to buy a modechip ??

    That's why I have a disclaimer at the start of the program,

    [​IMG]

    You should have installed preloader or at least set up your system so that you can boot autoboot discs.

    Updating to a higher version system menu will not help in banner brick cases. TP hack savefile is not resident in 3.4 system menu. It gets removed at each start of system menu. You should try what Davi92 suggested if you have a trucha bugged system...

    By the way, how did you succeed in banner bricking your system with Crap? For which game were you using?

    Good news: I got the original GC controller and was able to load SaveMiiFrii.
    Bad news: I get a 4.0(USA) text in the lower right corner of the screen and there is nothing I could do from there.

    Tomorow I'll buy more DVD-R and try the ISOs Davi92 left.

    Edit: Great news, I tried with the Autoboot WAD Uninstaller downloaded from a post in Teknoconsolas (that's not me posting, but seem that is starting to be a common problem) and the problem was solved!

    Here's the direct link for the download: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=JTPZJPJM

    Thank you all so much for your endless help! You saved my ass (It wasn't even my own Wii xD )
