So i wanted to install custom wad channels for my 4.3E Wii. I am pretty sure i did something wrong because after i finsished the install sequence in Wad Manager I restarted my wii and there is a black screen now. I tried starting the Wii in maintenence mode but it didnt work. I dont have priiloader or bootmii installed. I would reset my wii but i couldnt find a way to do it because of the blackscreen.

Help would be appreciated

I tried to start it without the sd card and the black screen is still there. I watched some unbrick methods but i dont have bootmii or priiloader installed. Is there any other way to unbrick it?

Never, ever install random channels without having brick protection! Grrrrr! Why does this keep happening? Why do people install stuff to the Wii while not even having Priiloader?

Having that warnings and questions said:

Prepare a Linux system with Bluebomb (Raspberry Pi 3 or 4 works like a charm) and try starting a WAD manager (or even better Priiloader installer) with Bluebomb while the Wii is on the H&S screen. That might be the last option (not counting complex hardware recovery – restoring a backup with an Infectus chip).
