    Okay so I've just really been reading around.

    But say, for example, I bricked my wii completely. Like, full-brick.

    But my system is 3.2U with Starfall already.

    So, if I got bricked and I loaded up files on my SD as wads, like maybe original IOS files, a legit sysmenu wad, just the things I need to reset my wii back to something like factory 3.2U settings.

    Would I be able to hold Y on a 'cube controller and load up TP and perform the hack to start up a wadmanager boot.dol, then browse through and install the recovery files? Or maybe pull a controller apart and hold up+down+left+right on the d-pad to boot up?

    I'm mostly just confusing myself here. But I think I stated it clearly enough for you to answer me.

    By perma-brick, do you mean removal of the ios that system menu uses or the system menu itself?

    In that case, no software solution for you...
