    You dont have a banner brick - you have a region brick.
    A banner brick is from installing an incorrect wad - you updated with an incorrect region - its a lot harder to fix this.

    system menu 3.3 does not support trucha discs plus his modchip does not support autoboot discs...
    so you will have to get a modchip that does support autoboot or wait for a game to be released with a 3.4 update on it....

    Since you now have 3.3U, test ntsc-u version of twilight princess..

    If you still have twilight hack in your wii, you can fix it using TP hack but with NTSC-U version of the game.... make sure you patch it as autoboot...

    You can't run any of the modified discs unless you previously downgraded the ios used by the system menu...

    You can fix it using a Korean game that has 3.4 update too...(though no such game exists yet I guess..)

    Yes since you removed your TP Hack you will need to Mod-chip it, Wii Key will do fine, This will enable autoboot disc,
    just download a Autoboot Wad Manager they worked fine to remove the wad that bricked your wii,

    N00b here. I was just curious, how does an app like mplayerwii cause a banner brick? What exactly causes a banner brick and is there any way to prevent it?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, those of you who are more knowledgeable, but any wad/channel can cause a banner brick if the banner[the logo you see on the screen] has bad dimensions. It's not specific apps that cause it. You can't stop them from happening if you get a bad wad, but you can severely reduce the chance by using good, well known dumps, or well made wads. Also, use WADder to roll your own channels if you're extremely paranoid.

    To recover from one, you generally use Zelda or some other booting method to boot wad manager to remove the bad wad[you still have to have a copy of the wad on your SD card].

    Again, if I'm wrong, please correct me. I'm willing to learn. [​IMG]

    Yeah that'll do [​IMG]

    Best bit of advice that can be given is DO NOT INSTALL WADS (created by yourself or others), if you have no means to recover from a banner-brick!

    I suggest Preloader, or starfall (3.2 Firmware required and TP-Hack installed).

    Thanks, that makes sense, but I'm curious... I can see how a self-made wad file could have a bad banner in it, but why would that be the case in a wad that a developer wrote and made available, like mplayerwii? Don't the developers normally test these things first?

    the developers are mostly against WADs, so they are just made by people.

    Just use wadder (wadder.net) and nothing bad will happen.

    Is it a good idea or even possible to install both preloader and starfall on 3.2?
