New version (2009-08).When powered on, your Wii displays nothing but an error message, or nothing at all? We may have just the solution for your problem. Theres a good chance a nifty little piece of hardware can allow you to fix your system.
Most “bricks” are the result of poor error checking or bugs in the Wiis System Menu. For example, if you have installed a system update off a wrong regions disk, the System Menu will only display an “Opera” error message and halt without running disks anymore. SaveMii will let you break out of this condition.
SaveMii allows to skip most of the System Menu startup process, especially the part that fails and halts the boot process. Instead, it causes the Wii to directly run software off a disk.
SaveMii is a small dongle that is plugged into a Wiis Gamecube memory card slot. It mimicks a test interface that is believed to be used in Nintendos own facilities (dubbed “Waikiki” by Nintendo).
When the System Menu is started and such a device is found, much of the System Menus code is skipped. Instead, the System Menu checks the validity of the disk, runs an update from the inserted disk if present, and then tries to start a diagnostic – also known “autoboot” – disk.
This will allow updates from legit Wii disks to fix the system data. Or, if the Wiis system hasnt been updated to version 3.3 yet and is equipped with a modchip, even run custom-made disks containing updates or homebrew tools to modify the system.
