the other day i bricked my wii. I have system-menu 4.0, and an NTSC-U console. I have been running the twilight hack, homebrew, etc. for quite some time now with no problems, and with no mod-chip. I was attempting to install a 00000072.app using softmii when i bricked it. It is a full brick, and all i can get my wii to do right now is boot into recovery mode using the savemefrii method. But, once in recovery mode, it seems i have no ability to autoboot discs. I have burned tons of discs that are supposed to do multiple things (launch WAD manager, launch HBC, install new firmware) yet none of them will autoboot. Ofcourse i have set the autoboot flag on all of them, using tools like BootMe and Wii Autoboot Creator. All have failed miserably for me. My question is, if i buy a modchip, will it give me the abilty to autoboot these dvds, so i can unbrick my wii? i really have no other use for a modchip, since i can do everything fine without one, but i need to know if it will autoboot my discs separately from the way wii tries to, cause clearly my wii cannot autoboot dvds anymore.
