    Semi Bricked wii? Rectification please if possible

    I post this thread on behalf of a friend who attempted to softmod his wii following the mauifrog softmod guide. (I apologise if this post has been uploaded in a different forum, i selected submit new thread but i can't find it anywhere, so i'm assuming it didn't post the thread). He has told me that he istalled bootmii as boot2 and completed the mod. It was only after he had finished the mod that he realised that he had left a game in the disc drive. When he powered the wii down, instead of getting the red power off light, he got a yellow/amber one. He said that when he powers the wii up, it loads the bootmii screen, and he has to select the wii icon for it to then load in the usual way to the system menu. He asked me what i thought, but as i have never had a problem with my wii, i can't really give him an answer. What has he done? and can it be rectified? many thanks for any and all help.

    Take the sd card out of the Wii, put in pc and rename the bootmii folder to bootmii_s. This will solve your problem.
