I just wonder why so many people brick their wii.
Is it a matter of a bad tut, bad wad or bad day?
Not that I complain about the unbricking though. Fixed now a little less than 30 wiis with the help of an infectus chip.
Most of them have the same problem. Missing sysmenu IOS version on it.

Just did one today with a missing IOS 70 on it. Fixed it within 45 mins.

    i personally ran into a bad tutorial (guess that's a pretty common problem)
    bad wads for sure by the amount of bannerbricks
    bad day ? not too many i guess, a power out during install, that chance isn't that big (or you must be numb enough to fidel with it during an storm)
    a lack of knowledge causes also enough bricks ^^

    Themes is indeed a brick creator, never seen one myself but read enough about it.

    I believe the biggest brick maker is people not know what they are doing and not taking the time to read up on stuff before they try it out. Yes themes can brick your wii but I've installed dozens and even made my own and never bricked, WHY? cause I take my time and learn what I have to learn so that I don't do something stupid.
    Youtube is another big cause, with so many halfassed guides made by people who have no clue what they are doing, combined with the people in my first sentence is a recipe for disaster.

    good going erikie! Thought the chip needed to be soldered to the legs? From what you sounds like its reusable?

    a) not learning what savemiifrii is.
    b) asking a question on a blog.

    Wondering if bootmii files is what we meant though.
