    Us 4.3U Black Wii, Bricked? Need Help ASAP!

    Hello, new to the forums, and I am a fairly new member. I've been to the site multiple times before, but none of the solutions I have read about have helped me in any way at all, so I'll try my hand at a different approach.

    My Situation:

    My Wii has been bricked for about a good day and a half now. It was already hacked via Letterbomb, and everything worked perfectly as instructed. However, after attempting to install a custom system hack, poof. Black screen of death after health screen. Literally every time . Previously had bootmii/boot2 installed, as well as preloader/priiloader, however now neither seems to work (I am aware that two blue flashes indicate bootmii, one blue flash means nothing at all).

    My Question:

    Is there anything I could possibly to do this Wii, at all? I am in dire need of assistance, and I would really like to know if there is any hope. Whether it is a DIY instructional, or if I have to send my Wii in to another member (I don't know if this is illegal on this forum or not, if so I will take this post down ASAP) in order for them to work with my Wii, I am willing to do whatever it takes at the moment. Please help!

    Specs:
    Black Nintendo Wii System, 4.3U, Letterbombed
    Preloader/Priiloader & Bootmii/boot2 previously installed, though may have been deleted

    You tried putting bootmii back on your SD card to have boot2 boot into bootmii and it didn't work? Are you sure that you had eveything on the SD card right?

    You tried holding down reset as you boot up your system to try to get priiloader to run and it didn't work?

    Double check these things again. If boot2 bootmii and priiloader has been installed, the two cases above should be working to give you chances to fix your system.

    Yes, I have everything needed...or so I think. I have bootmii on my SD card, as well as priiloader. I tried holding down the reset button when I booted up my wii, loads straight to the health screen. Upon pressing (A) after that, black screen. And I thought boot2 was supposed to autoboot (which it doesn't do at all). What files do I need on my SD card exactly, because chances are I may be missing something important and I don't realize it yet. Btw thanks for the quick reply!

    To have boot2 boot into bootmii, you need the following files on your SD card:

    sd:/bootmii/armboot.bin
    sd:/bootmii/bootmii.ini
    sd:/bootmii/ppcboot.elf

    then if you want to restore your old NAND backup, you'll need the backup file and the key stored on the root of your SD card.

    Okay, yup I have those files all on my SD card in the correct folder. Still nothing I should have went with my gut and avoided trying to download anything extra without reading upon it any further. So doc, what's the diagnoses? Am I screwed?

    I'll defer this to our master surgeon, Mau.

    Unless you messed with the internals, there is zero chance that a black wii would allow bootmii to be installed as boot2. So I wouldn't spend much time perusing that avenue. If you can't get to priiloader by pressing reset (WITH WII OFF) hold it, then hit power, keep holding reset, then you dont have it installed. Note, installing a new system menu (or sometimes themes) will delete priiloader.

    While it is unlikely to help, you could try maintenance mode - @ health screen, press and hold + and -. While holding tap A. This bypasses some of the normal stuff.

    Thank you. The life of my Wii rests in the hands of pros (people who know wtf they're doing) now, so I am at ease for now

    I have yet to try this, but it's worth a shot.

    Okay so neither method worked, much to my annoyance. Unless there are any alternative methods (I hope), I'm screwed it looks like.
