    I have a D2C Wii with firmware 3.2U that bricked from a bad theme
    -I accidentally uninstalled preloader and the twilight hack before bricking but I have starfall installed(which doesn't help at all right now)
    -I tried installing an update from original disc through nintendo's recovery menu but it didn't install anything and just played the game
    -I can't find any way to fix this

    If I install this modchip
    http://www.modsupplier.com/catalog/wii-sol...ckey-p-250.html
    can I use a BURNED disc that has wad manager in it so i can install a firmware update to fix it
    -If that won't work, will my wii at least be able to play burned games through recovery menu or starfall

    Have you got the HBC??

    I'd install that from the ISO cause you have a modchip and you're on 3.2.

    Is it a semi brick? I'm not sure what you're trying to do or how bad your problem is...?

    It's a full brick, i have HBC installed but no way to get into it
    -I don't have the modchip yet, first i wanna know if it's going to work with the modchip
    -I currently have no way to play burned games

    *what i want to know is if i will be able to play burned games if i install the modchip on my bricked wii and use nintendo's recovery menu using the Gamecube controller hack*


    Thanks for your help

    Ok then I'm going to buy the chip to see if it works(fingers crossed)
    I just thought that maybe chips don't work through nintendo's recovery menu

    If it's a full brick, most likely it won't play games either even via a modchip.

    Modchips have a high chance of screwing your Wii up more in Recovery menus...

    Well i already ordered it a while ago
    I can play original games through the recovery menu but they won't update probably cause i have starfall installed too
    this is my last hope for my Wii to be fixed and if it doesn't work I'll only be able to play original games(that means no hombrew,virtual console, or wiiware)

    If you can boot retail games, why don't you just launch wadmanager through the twilight hack?

    Why not just play it safe, get your Wii fixed at modchip store, and load your burned games via Wii Backup Loader or something like that...

    Softmodding your Wii is better than actually hardmodding your Wii...

    How is that? Hardmodding it would be better. Can fix bricks easier and can load games at fullspeed.

    You can use trucha signed autoboot discs in your configuration... So a modchip will be the solution.

    Hmm just noticed... your choice for the modchip is not quite right...
    If it's not only me, D2CKey or it's clone D2C Pro doesn't support autoboot discs...
    I hope I'm not right...

    If it doesn't have autoboot then I can't use it through starfall or nintendos recovery menu?
    -can anyone that has the chip confirm if it works through starfall or nintendos recovery menu please

    I read in some topic that any chip could autoboot

    Don't know why but I had really hard time trying to unbrick my wii (with d2c pro, d2ckey clone...)
    Only I was able to use autoboot discs when I replaced the drive with a wiikey2 modded one... but of course this was only me...

    Hiya just to add my 2 pence,

    You tryed auto booting zelda from recovery menu then reinstall 3.3v1 with wad manager then just downgrade the wii again with ARC
    Or get flatmii and auto boot that way

    You can fix this easy with the right tools

    If you need my help PM me
