    Hi, I've had my wii unplugged for a few months, and I went to go plug it back in today to play some games and it was completely frozen at the halth and safety menu. The Hit A button never comes up. I'm on a softmodded 4.0 system. Any ideas or am i fucked?

    It sounds like you have a banner brick (Corrupted channel). Has anyone else touched it in that time?

    then deadlyfoez@yahoo.com should for sure be able to fix it

    there may be other ways for u to fix it yourself, like autobooting a disc, or autobooting multiple discs to fill up all the space on your wii so u bypass the system menu entirely and get taken to the data management screen where u can delete the channel that may have bannerbricked u... if that was even the cause. And to do all that, u may need a modchip, I'm not sure.

    Long story short, I'm personally not sure of how u should proceed on your own... I don't think there's anything u can do without an infectus... so I would contact deadlyfoez

    Ur dead...





    Not really! You can try savemiifrii as alpo845 says... make sure to get a gamecube controller and a game with a newer Wii Firmware (a youtube tutorial should be fine)

    But... if you are using 4.3, you have a cool brick for your lego collection until a new game with a new system update. (SMG2 comes with 4.3, someone correct this if im wrong)

    Except that installing a newer system menu will not fix a banner brick... Unless the banner brick is from an official channel.
