Sorry to keep bothering you, but your answers are extremely helpful. After reading your page on the UUD you made, it seems as if you say that this disc will run from the rescue menu on a (unchipped/softmodded) wii with starfall that will allow you to access the rescue menu. Now I have the option turned on on starfall that makes it so that the automatic disk updates get skipped, so this would eliminate my chances of using that disk to update my firmware.
My question is, can I use that disk to access the wad manager on it to remove the offending wad that is bricking my system menu even if I'm not chipped? I do have the cios that the gamma loader uses installed, as it was part of the tutorial i followed to hack the wii in the first place, though I never did play any backups. Is that the cios I would need to boot this from the rescue menu without a chip? Sorry if this is too much to be asking. I'm just hoping I can do something about this without breaking open the wii.
