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).

    I'd say there would be more PS5 exclusives...if people could actually buy PS5s.

    I mean, if no-one can buy a PS5, and thus is stuck with PS4 (Pros), then companies would still see some profit from developing PS4 games with PS5 upgrades; meanwhile, if they developed a PS5 game, then everyone who can't get that console won't buy that game, especially at launch.

    Nah every console starts early with low libraries

    well theyre churning them out as fast as they possibly can, not like Xbox or PC are faring much better with the chip shortages

    and games still take 4-6 years to develop regardless, so its not like sony can conjure up new exclusives out of thin air

    Makes me wonder what they have now and are actually hiding from the public

    I hope in the next 5 years they can move on to even more realistic skin renders and not just make characters look like Shiney clay molds
