    Yes, its called savemiifrii, it will load when a gamecube controller is in port 4 and all directional buttons are pressed on the d-pad. It will load any update on the disk in the drive as long as:
    1. The disk is an official wii disk (no burned disks)
    2. The update is higher than your current system menu version

    so you are going to need a wii game with 4.0 or higher to use it

    You can use a backup disc if you have a modchip.

    3 - the disc region is correct

    In which cases is this actually helpful? If the system menu or its IOS is "gone", it won't work. If you installed a broken channel, it crashes everytime the banner of the channel is loaded. What does updating the system menu help here?

    I thought this only fixes broken system menu settings and bricked Wiis due to wrong region updates?

    It really depends on how you bricked it. Better tell us how you did it because in most cases people screw their wii More and More up and the wii became
    repaireable to unrepaireable.
