    hello everyone ..

    it has been months since I bricked my wii n i was tottaly unaware of it after inserting mario kart wii disk into my japanese wii ..
    then i started doing some researches n i knew all about bricking n regions stuff which i was unware of it at all in the beginning ..

    anyhow now im really having hard time to know the right procedure to fix my wii now, there are so many threads all over the forum and the internet and i didnt find a clear way to do it i guess im not brainy abt such stuff ..
    everybody is talking abt the firmware but how can i know the firmware number of my wii?

    so can someone help me and guide me through to unbrick my wii ..
    thanks in advance for everyone ..


    regards.

    Is it a semi-brick? Case that settings can not be accessed but otherwise fine.

    Use app called anyregionchanger and update to 3.3J. Then, use the anyregionchanger again to get back to 3.2J.

    Do you have a SD card reader? (You have to connect it to PC)

    So then...what are you waiting for? Download HBC JAP iso, burn it to DVD and put in your Wii.
    Unless...you have 3.3 firmware...but now how will you check it [​IMG]

    Dude, the best way to fix semi bricks is by using semi brick fix discs

    just google semi brick fix, get the update of your region and burn it, boot the disc and it will update.

    The semi brick fix disk dont need an SD card. All you need to do is get your region update and burn it with the iso....i think
