To everyone who is semi-bricked w/ 3.2U, your out of luck. the only way to unbrick is to get a newer firmware. AFAIK, nintendo releases new firmware w/ their first party games, and I don't know what other first party games they even have planned! Maybe they'll do an online update.
Thanks goodness I have found this page. I have just put a freshly downloaded game in my Wii. I think I have just semi-bricked it X_X
The worst thing is I don't know which chip I have in my machine and I don't know if it is NTSC or PAL... It is a Japanese version... since they are all in Japanese... Now I can't get in my setup menu and I also got a error code from Mario Kart.. I have found another thread sorta solve the Mario Kart problem...but what on earth is PPF-o-Matic or PPF patch?? Sorry... but I am all new to this and I just afraid I might just lost my Wii to the updates...
I did update it today ... not sure if it is with the game or online.... but last time I updated it through paper mario and it worked! The paper mario i played was in English tho... I don't know if that is NTSC or PAL... can someone help me out this sticky mess?
My wii is jap but I cant read jap and I need to update to the latest frimware has any one got instructions on what buttons I need to click?
this translates the jap menu
Hi, I just wanted to make sure I don't brick my Wii.
If I update my drivers via the internet to the newest drivers and burned a game I purchased at Wal-mart (same as where I bought my console) I should be fine right?
Should I still use Wii brick blocker or would it be fine if I accidentally forgot?
update from internet = safe
play burned game from same region = safe
wii brick block = safe
haha, I have semi bricked my NTSC(J) wiikey with wii-fit last night!!
Jesus! that's why all the updates/installations failed.
so I will have to wait for next firmware update...(new version Game Disc)
but what about wiikey 1.9s jap? // should I inquire from other topics forum? it's not about firmware bricking anymore, I am not sure if this error I observe is related to wii semi-bricked.
Sega~ -> A or Reset button -> It went through first phase (first test with 100% check) then right after it reaches 100% test check, it stopps and gives error 'please check the connections and try again'.
what does that mean? error in hardware or from wii semi brick?
I have found this site else where... could be here somewhere...
I have downloaded and burnt it into a disc... i am waiting to get home and try it!! Can't wait!

Thank you for the fast reply. You've helped a lot.
Hi im trying to update my firmware on my jap wii has any one got any instructions some one posted a translation but the link didnt work thanks.
HERE is the link to a translation.
was wondering if the link above for fixing semi bricked wii's works? coz i've been looking for a solution to un-bricking my jap wii (should be a ntsc-j)after getting it semi bricked using a pal wii fit.
any advice would help as all i know currently is that i've gotta wait till a next update from nintendo comes out. if this solves everything then will i be relieved...
many thanks in advance!!
I have an NTSC Wii and region bricked it with a PAL Mario Kart. I just got Wii Fit and it did not have an update on it.
correcting myself: its already out, wii fit ntsc-u doesnt have an update in it unlike the pal and ntsc-j version.
is it safe to run the update to the lastest version on wifi if the modchip is installed
only IF the game's region is the same as the wii = 100% safe. otherwise there are chance of bricking it.
Thanks for the reply but when updating through wireless can the modchip be detected and stop it from updating properly and does it only update when a game needs it or can it be done via the settings screen etc
