I thought some of you might enjoy the fact that I am a boob, and bricked my wii- for about 30 seconds.

I thought it would be a good idea to see what this does

I was reviewing this-

system menu uses is /ticket/00000001/00000002.tik which you SHOULD STAY AWAY FROM)

use the attached dol to delete the ticket

From reading it, I thought it may let me delete any ticket. I very quickly found out that this app very quickly deletes the above mentioned ticket. Well this gives you a nice preloader brick- system menu ticket not found or something like that.

Silly silly me. The good news is I have been procrastinating for a good reason the reinstall my system menu and update to priilaoder .4. I was still on preloader .29, so this gave me the needed motivation.

So I guess everyone is boob from time to time.

    Thanks for sharing. The possibilities for screwing up exist for us all as long as we play around with files and keep exploring. Sometimes I wonder if I could save some money and buy a separate Wii just for experimenting...then usually some unexpected expense pops up.

    I have been checking local pawn shops looking for an older Wii that will install bootmii as boot2, as to use one for experimenting also.
    Knowing it was you, I was sure it was unbricked, even before reading the blog. Lets just hope many members see this and realize just how easy it is to make a mistake.

    BootMii for Users:
    BootMii is a piece of software that can be installed as an IOS or inserted into the boot process. As an IOS, it provides a fast way to back up your Wii's internal NAND flash memory, and will eventually form the basis of a new generation of homebrew applications for the Wii. Inserted into the boot process, BootMii provides you with a "safety net" -- you can back up your entire Wii to SD in under three minutes! If you were to brick your Wii, BootMii would still run and let you restore your backup from SD, quickly and painlessly. BootMii also allows you to directly boot The Homebrew Channel or other homebrew from SD, bypassing the "warning screen" and the rest of the menu.
