    First, I'm sorry if this is the wrong section.
    Anyways, I installed Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney using WAD Manager, and it is showing in the menu and all, but when I launched it, it showed "This channel can't be used". And I needed to turn off my Wii, will my Wii work when I launch it now? I'm kinda scared that it is bricked.
    Also, I installed the WAD Before in Dolphin, and it worked.

    Use showmiiwads and change the region flag to region free.
    "This channel cannot be used" indicates a region mismatch between your Wii System Menu and the channel
    (Eg. Running a Japanese channel on a US Wii)

    Thank you! One more question, if I'll only change the region, it won't corrupt the Wad/Brick the wii when installed?
    EDIT: Yep, the WAD's region was NTSC, And my Wii is Pal. Tested stuff with Dolphin and it looks like it works. Even managed to install a DLC. Gonna wait for you reply though, just to be sure before I install the WAD On my wii

    If the wad could be successfully installed before you region change the wad,then it would be very very unlikely to brick. The only way that installing a wad that is not a system critical wad(Eg, critical IOSes, System Menus or themes,)is the banner brick. The banner brick occurs when the banner(The animation the game is showing on the Wii Menu) is corrupted or of the wrong size, which could cause the system menu to crash on boot.
    Priiloader can help you recover from a banner brick, as long as you have the Home Brew Channel.

    Warning: Do NOT install Priiloader on the Wii Mode of Wii U!!

    Thanks! It works, I have a small problem though, it's about a DLC, I Got the DLC For the game and the game, when I install both on Dolphin, it shows fine in game. But when I install the game and the DLC On my Wii, the game doesn't show the new episode..
