Does your regular wii screen come up, can you get into your wii settings, if so then your wii isn't bricked. Maybe you just didn't follow directions properly.

he has a banner brick, without preloader or bootmii.
i'm thinking he is going to have to buy an Autoboot Drivekey :/

i wish i could think of what else he could do.

oh yeah, definitely.
the drivekey is just used to autoboot a disc that you make, kind of like preloader, but with a disc.
so i was reading, you can make an autoboot disc with the homebrew app Anytitledeleter on it, then you can just delete the corrupted channel.
then if you want, remove the modchip and sell it if you want to.

i'm not too smart with modchips paul, i'm sorry.
that was just what i read was the only other thing to do.

but i mean, if it comes down to me being the only person that can help, i'm sure i can learn really quick for you.

the drivekey site said though, that if you order it from there site, they will provide free phone and online help for you if you need it, at anytime for however long. so no worries Very Happy

cheers Ryan
well i got the gc controller. and i manage to get the black screen with 4.0 E in bottom right hand corner. i have the 1.31 recovery disc and wad manager 1.3 autoboot disc. but they will not boot ? i have tried to find a download for "universal boot disc v2" but dont seem to be having any luck. seems to have dissappeared off of sites. sent the drivekey back to make sure it is set to autoboot. and have been assured it has. so why wont discs start ??? anyone with any ideas ????
PLEASE !!!!

SUCCESS !!!! sort of
managed to revive the wii using the "universal unbrick disc v2" and gamecube controller. the disc took me to wad manager 1.3 and i deleted the bad wad (neogamma v5).
the problem now is i get the channel screen up but no homebrew channel. i still have back up launcher and neogamma 0.3. but i dont know where homebrew channel has gone ?? I want to take the drivekey back out and then idealy wipe the wii back to virgin state and start again loading bannerbomb and all the latest apps !! is this advisable and if so how do i go about it ?? ive read that using the wii system menu reset doesnt get rid of all the cios on wii ??
at the moment with the drivekey the will will only play original discs aswell. cant play any back ups keep getting 002 error ??
help required please Ryan
cheers
Paul

hey, sorry for the late response, but awesome job, essentially you did pretty much what my idea was lol
im not sure if you can uninstall the modchip, its possible, but its iffy. deleting cios files are dangerous, but if you know what you are doing you can use any title deleter. i will look more into uninstalling the modchip and get back to you paul.
Very Happy
