Right on, I got my savemii yesterday, and well, my wii boots a black screen with 4.3(USA) in the bottom right corner.

so in other words, it's not a full brick, but I'm not sure how I can fix it now. the universal unbrick disc will not boot, maybe I need to buy super mario galaxy 2 with the 4.3 update on it? anyways not sure, I can't find a site with a DVD mod chip on it anymore.

So, I wanted to see the store too, thought it'd be ok to update.

updated fine, don't need to clarify this again, however it was just menupatcher, I can't even get it to load bootmii or priiloader (which I know I installed)

I ordered a savemii anyways, i hope this lets me fix it. otherwise it's probably going to get trashed. I don't care.

There hasn't been much useful in the official updates for some time now. It's mostly been patches just to stop homebrew. My Wii is currently on 4.0u and there's nothing I can't run.

While I'm not discrediting Waninkoko's work, or saying that his updaters don't work, but there's been many people complaining on other sites that his updates can cause problems as he either doesn't change, or leaves in some of the security features (that disable homebrew) from the official updates.

I've personally had this happen to me using one of his more recent updaters. Luckily I was able to downgrade, but I know I'll never use one of his again. There far too many custome apps and such I run on my Wii to have it messed up from an 'all in one' updater that may overlook some significant security update.

well, I had it all done, upgrade went fine

However it was after I used menupatcher it didn't do anything.
Sadly, I'm off to buy another wii today, but keeping the (bricked?) one in my room. IF there is a way to unbrick it, that'd be nice :]
