My 4.3E Wii has had this brick for over 5 years and i've been looking around in the forums lately to see if anybody has the same problem, and it looks like a couple people have it and a couple more people are looking into it, for what i understood, a mail brick is when the wii message board data gets corrupted and it can no longer make your wii boot to the main menu but only from the maintenance mode one, and the Priiloader one, so my question was, has anyone found anything about it? is there something in the works with it? Or at least, can i be notified if someone ever finds a fix by simply posting a comment under this post? I have alot of old stuff and that Wii and it would be so sad if i had to format, it would also be a pain to format since i have to get rid of my themes, mods, etc. to format it. BTW. Im pretty new here so let me know if this post goes here or not. Thank you!

I don't know how to solve that problem in particular, but u can backup your data before starting fresh. Use savegame manager gx, or even usbloader gx. Make a nand backup too so u can access it using show mii wads / showmiinand.

Then it's just a matter of restoring the backups afterwards

    I've got a clone, it works fine, but I can't get it to play nice with my SDcard reader.

    like an sd card slot extension thing?

  • MightyJAK @ MightyJAK:
    Yeah, to load from (and save data to) an SD card plugged into the serial port.

  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    You test that extension thing through a regular usb reader on your pc? Could just be a shit one. Bought one for my 3d printer and it just straight up doesn't work

  • MightyJAK @ MightyJAK:
    it can't be plugged into a USB reader (it's made from a regular SD card to USB adapter, but with the USB end modded to a Dreamcast serial plug)

    It was working fine before I installed the GDEMU, but now the Dreamcast doesn't recognize it when I boot up Dreamshell.

    ahhh I gotcha. yeah haven't looked at it that much so I'm not super familiar with the hardware

    Can't find any threads about this particular issue on GBAtemp or the wider intarwebz. Saw one video on YouTube that seemed relevant, but it was some dude with the same issue, no solutions offered in the comments. :/
