    I guess the MOD closed because you and WiiCrazy, shared a malicious .wad, or because you already share it and there was no point on keeping it open, dunno..!!

    There you go boys & girls, that's the "Danger" of installing improper wads,
    Now lets see, ARE YOU "PREPARED" YES/NO??

    Now go do the same brick with the health replaced with back menu installed [​IMG] see how you recover. might be as easy..

    Got to say while you were recording, camera started going "mental" think it didn't like you hurting your poor little wiiwii

    ether : Well it was all my previous modchips fault... Once more (first one was at the modders place) I replaced the drive of the bricked wii with the wiikey2 modded one seeing adambrunt has already fixed his wii... I opened up both wiis, put the wiikey2 modded drive into the bricked wii... before doing all that I tested a working autoboot homebrew channel iso (iso template at hackmii) and saw it worked on my nonbricked wii...(actually tested 2 discs, one pal, one ntsc... ntsc didn't work...)

    Then plugged in the savemii into the bricked wii and powered on the wii, to my surprise it booted... Then I deleted the problem channel using the anytitle deleter... rebooted and everything was fine again...

    quincy : That "Da bricked.." text is real taken from my bricked wii... Even if you can't autoboot wii runs the apploader from the disc... In the apploader you can patch the system menu to run arbitrary code... hence that simple patch just patches the error message... you can see the detail in the below thread...

    yeah that's right, it is started before hand, but still could cause more issues when removing the health patch..

    and again

    Wiicrazy,what do u think of the tut and vid?

    @DJDynamite

    yeah,does it?
