Then I updated the ticket and tmd to be named as UUD but I had to change the game partition, the iSO itself and the crypted name of the game too to be fully displayed as "Universal Unbrick Disc"
And be sure you use an ORIGINAL GC Controller because we can't manage to boot into rescue menu with a 3rd-Party GC Controller.
How to Use:
• Extract and burn the image
• Turn on Wii and insert disc to auto boot WAD Manager

OK so I have got a copy of the disk and have installed HBC and bootmii as boot 2 - A good start. I decided to do a NAND backup before doing anything else and it has had loads of ECC failures (corrected).
I have seen 1 or 2 before on my other Wii's but never this many. If they are corrected then I guess it is not an issue and may indeed been part of the problem. My biggest concern is that it has found 8 that it says "ECC failure (uncorrectable) for page XXXXXX".
These blocks also fail during the verification at the end of NAND backup "Verify failed for block 1755). This worries me and I cant find out much about it. Does anyone know if these blocks get marked as bad if the are uncorrectable so that the system does not write to them?
If this is the case I am not worried but if not surely they will cause system crashes. If anyone has any knowledge of this I will be grateful. Once this completes I will put on the IOS's I need and use Waninkoko Firmware Updater to clean up the system menu. I am hoping I will have a good Wii again.
Can you also explain why bootmii is not enough protection against bricking? What will the RescueMii-Core give me?
An Update: Having backed up NAND I have proceeded to install IOS 36 TRUCHA and downgraded IOS 15. I have removed all channels using DOP-Mii and I still had the corrupt sytem menu message. I then proceeded to download a wad for system menu 4.2 (can setup internet yet until I get the system menu working normally - currently only in maintenance mode) and installed it using DOP-Mii. Again this made no difference to the corrupt sytem message.
Can anyone advise me what is the likely cause and what I can therefore remove/restore to fix it?
Thank you. I have a copy of the disk on the way and will do as you say. I will post back to let you know how I get on.
Can you just clear one thing up for me as I am a little confused. Can I use a PAL copy of super smash bros brawl for the SSBB exploit or does it have to be US copy (NTSC) as you suggest in you previous post.
Jop you need the trucha in the systems ios to be bale to boot hombrewed discs.
And if your wii settings is working under maintenance mode just get a copy of Indiana Jones, start it, play it, save it and copy the indiana pwns onto your wii.Then again start game and make use of the exploit to load the hackmii installer.After that use wad manger to install a fresh version of FW 4.2.
If your done and your wii is back to life plz install the RescueMii-Core and priiloader v0.3 or higher.
Here a step by step tut for iniana pwns:
1. Ensure your SD card is formatted as FAT. By default SD cards are formatted as FAT, so if you're not sure, you may skip this step.
2. (Optional) If you have an existing Indiana save that you want to backup, do so before proceeding:
1. Put your SD card in your Wii.
2. Go into Wii Options ⇒ Data Management ⇒ Save Data ⇒ Wii
3. Find your Indiana save, click on it, click "Copy", and click Yes.
4. Put your SD card in your computer, and copy the "private" folder from the card to a safe place.
3. Copy the "private" directory from the Indiana Pwns download to the root of your SD card.
4. Take your homebrew Wii executable (ELF file) and save it in the root directory of your SD card as "boot.elf".
5. Put your SD card in your Wii and turn it on.
6. Go into Wii Options ⇒ Data Management ⇒ Save Data ⇒ Wii.
7. Find your Indiana save, click on it, click "Erase", and click Yes.
8. Open the SD card and select the "Indiana Pwns" save that corresponds to your game region. Note: Some people are having problems with the Wii not "seeing" the save file on the SD card. If you are experiencing this, try setting the archive bit for the data.bin file - in Windows this can be either be done from the file's properties dialog (right click on it in Windows Explorer and check the box) or from the command line using "attrib +a ". More info at #wiihelp on Efnet.
9. Click copy and then yes. Now exit out of the menu.
10. Insert LEGO Indiana Jones disc and run the game.
11. From the Indiana game, load the saved game you just copied to the Wii.
12. When the game loads, you will be in Barnett College. Walk to the Art Room (through the Courtyard), approach the left character on the podium. When it zooms on him, choose the switch to option (two silhouettes, staggered, with an arrow pointing between them).
13. Here, the buffer overflow takes over and the Homebrew install will begin.
