    Hello glad to see you came into this topic now this is a new workaround that i've thought up to actually unbrick a wii console from a bannerbrick (Austin can verify i made this workaround and did indeed unbrick my wii via IRC aka Souls)

    Workaround 1# SDDm
    Does not work on Korean 003 Errored wii's


    EDIT: this can be done to unbrick 4.2v wiis but you must use the workaround to input a save file for another hack besides bannerbomb aka indiana jones

    I dub this workaround:SDDm(Speed Demon Data management) aka SD card -> Data management if you look at it that way

    To do this method you need to have the bannerbrick wii (4.2v system menu or below), Modchip(unless able to run games without one via recoverymenu), backups of your Owned games no piracy remenber? , a full or nearing full nand (no save blocks or barely any left)

    Your nand has to be almost full if not full so you can do this method if it not full proceed backing up your originals or autobooting to take nand space anyway anyhow, once you are nearing less than 100 you can then use the following games to create this workaround:

    Rabbids Go home (need around less than 77 blocks)
    MySims Agent (96 blocks or less)
    Mysims Kingdom (200 blocks or less)
    Mysims racing (i think 3 blocks or less)
    etc mysims games

    Once you have low enough to do the workaround you will
    Ex. Rabbids go home

    NOTE: you may also connect with rockband/guitar hero to dl songs if you have a valid wireless/wired connection setup already for a fast fill up!

    1. Start up the console booting your game of choice
    2. Go to the save screen where you can choose your save file.
    3. Click to install the rabbids go home channel
    4. Accept till it says you do not have enough space to install this channel
    5. take out the dvd.
    6. Click go to data management
    7. Congrats you've bypassed the system menu with this workaround, feel free from here to do any of the following hacks (adding saves for brawl/indiana jones/bannerbomb)

    Note: Brawl can be used to see your current amount of space by making stages and saving them only till 108 spaces then it won't show you less. You can fill your nand passed 0 blocks so don't worry about over filling

    Successfully unbannerbricked my 4.0v non truncha non bootmii wii
    This workaround has been discovered by me aka Souls/Dbgtgoten
    if you have any questions about it email = Gotendos@hotmail.com or reply here i'll answer
    I would like to say thank you for Austin and Geekboy for always talking to me during the rough bannerbrick times!

    Workaround 2# NIP

    NOTE another workaround into the data mangement screen has been found by me tho it might not be too appealing/might not work for bannerbricks please someone test if it can run during a bannerbrick
    2nd workaround : Fill the Nand completely full to 0 blocks and the system menu takes you to data management itself =)


    Workaround 3# WIP

    NOTE ANOTHER workaround into the data management screen has been found by me, It requires the game Bonsai Barber to be installed (Wiiware)!

    This workaround can't be done right now but it is a work in progress, i am looking for other ways to attempt this workaround!


    I am always looking for new workarounds ! so keep an eye out as i find em

    ENJOY YOUR UNBRICKING WIIS

    NOTE: it might be possible to change the games id title so you can dupe alot of the same saves (not tested) =)

    Save game Block Usage:
    GAMES:
    SSBB : 128 blocks ( can do USA and PAL save separate for 256 blocks)
    Drawn to life: next chapter : 77 Blocks
    Mario Kart : 23 blocks
    Guitar Hero world tour : 25 blocks
    Pikmin : 31 blocks
    Endless Ocean : 34 Blocks
    Petz Crazy Monkey : 21 blocks
    Quantom of Solace: 97 Blocks
    Harvest Moon Tree of Tranquil : 25 blocks
    Animal Crossing : City Folk : 36 blocks
    MySims Kingdom : 121 blocks
    MySims: 97 Blocks
    Elebits: 109
    Pokemon Battle Revolution: 29 blocks
    Call of duty WAW: 63 blocks
    Need for speed Nitro: 121 blocks
    Wii Ski = 81 blocks
    Simcity creator = 127 blocks
    Ultimate Alliance 2 =20 blocks
    Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 : 120+ blocks

    CHANNELS:
    Rabbids Channel : 77 blocks ( can be installed once then again to cause low space data management workaround)
    Mario Kart Channel: 78 Blocks
    Internet Channel : 222 Blocks
    Wii Fit channel: 120 blocks


    More coming soon...

    awesome.

    clever way to enter the save menu [​IMG]

    too bad you need an almost full NAND

    im pretty sure most bannerbricked wii owners dont know how many blocks they have left. [​IMG]

    wouldnt hurt to try though.

    Find the most heavily costing blocks for save games some are i'd give you a list as soon as i find out just basically get your own games and run them just to save them

    i will get a list of what i have soon.

    just wondering could this be used on the 003 error also, or would it just throw you back to the error just throwing it out there

    What about in the case of Error 003, which does come first I wonder 003 Error or System Memory is full error...

    well i don't know much about the 003 error but as long as you can run a game any kind it should work

    EDIT: if it is indeed a bad region upgrade as long as the data management part of the system menu is intact it should work and i think 003 only fucks up the system menu view so i don't see why not

    EDIT#2: if anyone knows any other game saves usage please tell me =)
