    Banner bricked my wii a few hours ago.

    Boots to the Warning screen...press A and goes to "System Memory is Corrupted, see manual for troubleshooting"

    Tried hard and soft resets, couldn't get it past that screen.

    I'm running a NTSC Wii 3.2U, Twilight Hack still loaded on, no mod chip.

    Should I

    a. Pay Nintendo 100 bucks to fix it

    b. get a mod chip installed and try the wad-manager autoboot ISO (I have the PAL version...I made an NTSC version with regionfrii but regionfrii seemed to think it wasn't business as usual, so I don't know if that would work)

    c. get a mod chip and patch an ISO of Twilight Princess to autoboot and use the TP hack to run wad manager.


    What's my best course of action?

    Thanks for the help

    So will the auto boot ISO work after it's been regionfrii'd?

    I do not see why it would not.

    regionfrii kept saying "this doesn't look like a wii iso. Continue anyway?"

    You know what? Why you just do not download NTSC version?

    I didn't know there was an NTSC version.

    Can you point me to it?

    If I use Zelda TP...on my SD card I need this program, right?

    http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Wad_manager

    I ask because it seems like it only refers to wads on the SD card and not in the Wii memory...

    Yes, you need this program + wad that done the brick. Just load TP, chainloader and uninstall the wad. (Put the wad in foler "wads" and the .elf file on root)

    Ok...that makes sense.

    So I keep the wad that bricked my wii on the SD card, select it and uninstall it, and the program will take it off of the wii memory...
