    Using a official disc update will not resolve a banner brick. But you probably don't have a banner brick, you have a full brick due to a stubbed system ios. Mh, but you said 4.1 ran flawlessly ... what exactly do you mean by that? Have you rebooted your Wii after upgrading? And what wad did you install that may have caused a banner brick? Have you tried getting into recovery mode? AFAIK, recovery mode will not work if there is no system ios. Even if it did work, do you know any game that has a 4.2 update partition? I'm not sure there is one yet. Probably Mario Galaxy 2 will have it.

    A wode is only a drive emulator. It will not get you into recovery mode. To get into recovery mode, you need a modded gamecube controller or a savemii dongle. But with a stubbed system ios, it probably won't work anyway.

    Define "boot2 CIOS". Did you have "bootmii as boot2" or "bootmii as IOS"?

    If you have a complete bootmii nand backup, you may be able to restore it either by getting into bootmii if you had it as boot2 or with an infectus modchip.

    Otherwise, your only option is to send it to Nintendo, claim you wanted to make an online update to 4.2 and it was bricked afterwards. If they don't find the homebrew, they'll repair it on guarantee.

    Not sure if anyone is still interested in this, but i thought i should update the review because the WODE team have released several firmware updates including the long awaited Wii disk ripping firmware.

    It's now simply a case of Insert Disk, Select Rip - Done a nice iso or wbfs image! (well almost - no long winded PC ripping anymore anyway!)

    While i'm at it - Although the WODE is designed to remove the need to softmod your Wii (thus reduce risk of bricking) it does allow homebrew to communicate with it. There are several HBC loaders for wode now - including WODEFlow (which is based on WiiFlow) this allows you to change wode iso's with the wiimote. (I know it kinda defeats the point of wode, but only HBC & DVDX are needed for this - no custom ios!)

    Either way - now the ripping is available, it's still cheaper (and quicker) to rip disks.

    Anyway, thought this was worth a mention.
