FULL INFO a few posts down
btw before i bricked it i managed to install preloader as BOOT1 only
does that open anything up lol?
lol installing system menu with wads
yup you are absolutley correct i have no clue.
so let me go over this again
i used this guide to softmodd a wii
Installing The Homebrew Channel & Bootmii
i Ran bannerbomb by going to the Settings, Data Management, Channels, SD Card & choosing yes to load boot.dol/elf
i installed install the Homebrew Channel, DVDX & Bootmii as IOS only
Updating your Wii
i Ran WAD Manager 1.5 from The Homebrew Channel.
Rebooted Wii and now i get Just a black Screen No health Warning no messages etc
Sorry for being a complete noobie
busicly you probly screwed up the system by installing a wad that didnt finnish correctly, you better off using a safe 4.2 updater
have you a spare GC controller? If so you could try the FREEsavemii while you wait for one to arrive. This will let you know exactly if you have a brick. Open the controller up (you'll need a triwing) and plug the controller into port 4 on the wii. Now, I've never tried this, but you can search around for better instructions; hold down all the d-pad buttons a the same time and start the wii - look around for descriptions about how to do this successfully, I've heard people say you have to do it various specific ways. If successful you'll get a recovery menu I believe, then you maybe able to do something.
anyway, this is just the same as what the savemii will allow you to do.
Sorry you've had bad luck mate, hope this helps; it's not much, but it's worth trying
PS, just thought, you'd need a disc with a higher firmware update on it for this proceedure to "repair" your wii- sorry
many thanks for the replies
im going to go pick a gamecube controller up tomorrow
i have wiifit plus which i think has 4.0 on it so will give it a try and report back
many thanks again.
that's the trouble with what I said, you've probably updated now to 4.2, so the wiifit disc won't help, and likely, nor will the (free)savemii
SaveMiiFrii is NOT going to help you. One of the first few wads you installed was System Menu 4.2. You can't install a system menu version lower than or equal to your current version with SaveMii/Frii
i think if you could rent a wii game with the new firmware youd be set
There's no System Menu 4.3
just for clarification. you cant with the savemii method.
Oops, forgot to add that.
whos says his system is on 4.2 yet, i may have never made it to that yet
It was the second wad he installed.
or is it? he could of just install the usa version of the menu when he needed the eu ver
im hoping the 4.2 failed to install
hopefully FREEsavemii will shows 3.3 still
tried the free way with no luck
i think its something more serious now
as its just displaying no signal through my tv even though i can hear the wii fan spinning and the power light is on
i know its not the cables or tv as i have tried my neighbours wii with no problems
nintendo here i come i guess
thanks for he info though all
