    Bricked wii no bootmii or preloader help

    Hello all,

    Ok...First off let me tell you all the story.

    My firend asked me to hack his wii since I had experience with that kind of thing I went ahead and tried to do this I followed this guide External Link Removed My friend said he was on 4.1U and I even checked and yet It was on 4.1U so I came back the next day and got the homebrew channel installed (not thinking about installing bootmii because I thought that It was impossible to brick because everything was done properly) then I went ahead and booted up wad manager and installed the cios, the wii restarted and went to a blank black screen. This was 3 years ago or something like that, the thing Is my friends wife installed 4.2U on It without telling me and so It bricked the Wii. No bootmii no preloader, no nothing. I was on Cios38rev17.

    So what I'm asking Is, how am I able to get this Wii running properly again? I press the power button, the green light comes on the disc spins acting like It's booting the wii game but It's just a blank black screen. No flashing of the screen no nothing. No NAND backup either.

    And to just clear myself I am considered a noob at this now, I havnt really touched a Wii or anything like that In a few years so I don't know much at all about the Wii scene.

    Thanks for reading

    Jeremy

    From what I read, it seems your wii is a reasonably old one. I know you didn't install bootmii, but do you know if it was possible to install bootmii as boot2? If that was possible, someone with a NAND programmer can flash bootmii/boot2 and that can be used to restore the wii. You will need to send the wii to a member with NAND programmer though and usually a small fee is charged for the repair.

    I really appreciate you replying. Yeah It's a an older one, newer than my previous hacked wii. Since I bricked It I had to buy a new one for him. Sucked, but oh well. The Wii I need fixed- has a serial number of LU33841174[5] i Think that you can figure out how old It Is, I know Its over 3 years old. But yes It was definitely able to have bootmii installed I had bootmii as boot2 on an older Wii model as well. So about that NAND programmer, Who shall I send It to? and whats this "small" fee you speak of? We can switch this to PM if youd like.

    Damn, I didnt see the "bricked wii issues only" I'm so sorry for that.

    Thanks

    Jeremy

    1. Moved to the bricked section of site;
    2. Judging by this thread, that's a boot2-capable Wii.
    3. If you're in the USA, see the author of #2 above (or streamlinehd).

    No staff designation (there was at one time), and as you're possibly wanting to do business with him...

    Send a PM to Krafter with all the info you have about your Wii. I have done business with him in the past so I can vouch for him.

    I made it simple enough. I PM'd him on your behalf with a link back to this thread. I know where he hangs his proverbial hat, lol.
