    Low level brick/Fully bricked Wi/Corrupt NAND Help Please?

    So being the idiot I am yesterday and I of course take full responsibility for this. I decided to go ahead and format my Wii with HBC and cIOS on there (now as far as I know some people's Wii's brick when they have stuff like this on) as I was having problems with IOS defaulting and making apps not work within HBC. Anyways so I preceded to format and everything went fine, letterbombed the Wii to get HBC back up and got bootmii going so I could restore my NAND. Here's the stupid part I was restoring the Wii with RestoreMii when my laptop battery was warning me etc so I went to go plug it in and realised that whilst RestoreMii was doing it's thing I unplugged it...yes I unplugged it like an idiot not thinking that was the plug socket as I have another one spare.

    So at this point I have a Wii on 4.3e that turns on and the disc drive will flash once and make noise depending on if the disc is in. There is no output onto the television and I've tried SaveMiiFrii (unless I'm timing it wrong and a third party controller makes all the difference) and I've tried loading a preloader (didn't have BootMii as boot2 cause I didn't know how I only had it as an IOS) neither have worked and I'm stuck guessing its a corrupt NAND.

    Any suggestions at this point to help me would be appreciated even if its on the lines of getting a modchip I don't mind doing it I just don't wanna replace the motherboard to be honest.

    That's a double fail! You were restoring the nand with bootmii IOS....fail #1 You unplugged your wii in the middle of a restore....fail #2


    I am pretty sure you are screwed. Cross your fingers and hope that Mauifrog chimes in with some of his brilliance.

    Sorry for adding this but I think the only thing that can save you is NAND programming.

    You need to have the nand reprogramed. Send it out to a nand programmer, like deadlyfoez, streamlinehd, krafter, etc.

    I've read about this although I don't know too much, such as Infectus chips, not sure how it all works exactly (I'm actually programmer so if it was to come down to actually coding I'd probably be fine) I just don't know the details of the rest of it.

    Thank you, I've sent him a message hopefully he should be able to assist me. (Wish I would of known how to install bootmii as boot2, I've no idea at all.)
