    Question Bricked WII while softmod.

    I've brick my wii while sofmod. I was following the tutorial http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html and i screw up.
    I was doing this part
    "You should be in the Homebrew Channel
    Launch Priiloader (the first one is 0.7, the second 0.8 beta 4)
    Priiloader Installer will load
    Read the warning- Press +/A to install
    When finished the HBC should load.
    Hold reset on the wii console, keep holding reset - priiloader will load
    ****If the wii freezes, hold the power down for 10sec.****
    ****Only install priiloader once, you need to hold reset to load priiloader****"
    I was in Homebrew Channel and i press reset instead of launch Priiloader. (yes i know ) the screen got dark and I could not do anything so i unplug wii and turned back on. Now it powers up, the dvd light blinks one time but there is no output video.

    What can i do?

    Unplug it for a bit, then hope it comes back to life. If I understand your post, you never installed priiloader, just the wads? That should not brick your wii in most cases. Did you install the 4.1 system menu files? All wads installed without error? If you did install 4.1, which one, and what region is your wii? Hopefully a short unplug will talk some sense into the wii and everything is AOK.

    Thank you both for the reply.

    Yes, i didn't get to install priiloader, but i should have mentioned that my wii was already softmod in 4.2E using a Guide that wasn't the Guide above. Yes i installed the 4.1 Menu system, updated the shop, and the wads with no errors. I installed the System Menu-4.1E-450 - Europe.
    I unplug the wii and the transformer from the plug. Didn't work. Try to hold reset button and power wii on but nothing happen.

    Does not sound good at all, I think your bricked. Do you have cIOS60-v6174-TED.wad on sd:\wad, and you installed it? Do you have bootmii installed as boot2 or only ios?

    Did you uninstall the system menu wad? Then install it again?

    Yes i have cIOS60-v6174-TED.wad and i installed.
    About de bootmii i don't know.
    "Install Bootmii as Boot2(boot2 may not be available, IOS installs automatically"
    I thought it was automatically installed, but now that you give me two options. I do not know.
    Didn't uninstall any wad because the guide said that would brick my wii.
