    Hey, sorry for this thread, but a friend of mine semi bricked his NTSC-U Wii updating with New Mario PAL. The problem is, I don't know what the current firmware of the console, and I think this information is necessary to bring the Wii back to normal.

    Thank's for help, I know that this kind of topic is a little custard. [​IMG]

    i dont think that info is necessary to fix it

    but the new mario bros wii games has the 4.1 update on it (i think)

    u should describe how u semi-bricked

    edit: I didn't read closely enough, so u updated a US wii using a PAL game? The ability to save your wii depends on what u did before hand. Do u have bootmii as boot2? Or do u have a nand back-up (if so, deadlyfoez can fix this for sure)? Do u have priiloader (even if u did, it may have gotten uninstalled during the update, depending on how far along it got)? Do u have cios249, darkcorp/cioscorp or a modchip?

    You have 4.1e, but it do not matter. Just use bannerbomb v2 and dop-mii v12, install ios36 with fakesign, then SM 4.1u. If the wii is online, install from NUS. If the wii is offline, use NUSD to download the needed wads to sd:\wad.
