    I hear about it all the time in other posts. I know what bricking is, but why is this "semi" so the wii is some what functional? Also, what causes it?

    It is a regio update brick...
    If you have a PAL wii (or NTSC or JAP) and you instal a NTSC or JAP update
    Your wii will 99.99998% get semi bricked [​IMG]

    Semi-brick meaning can't get into the settings, you get a Opera Error.

    The cause is, i think, installing a diffeent region wii update or your wii.

    eg. PAL update on a NTSC console, JPN update on PAL wii etc....


    But sometimes the update can do no harm.
