    My girlfriend bricked my wii and i need serious help (PLEASE)

    I recently downgraded my wii from 4.0U to 3.2U successfully. Forgetting to tell my girlfriend not to run a system update. So she wanted to play Mario Power Tennis and tried a system update. I came downstairs and the screen is now blank with the green light (on the power button) still on.

    Can somebody please help me to fix this problem.

    No fix you have fallen into the downgrade upgrade trap. there is a reason but there is a whole thread on it by Tealc99 you can look it up it you like. In short Its a big white paper weight now.

    Whether it's a coincidence or not I'm not wholly sure but I've certainly seen less of these bricks since posting that thread.

    Bootmii (boot2) is the only way you'll be able to recover from the stub IOS50 you now have on your Wii.

    More info http://www.wiihacks.com/general-home...stem-menu.html

    GBAtemp.net > Brick Warning! Those who have modchips.

    Dogeggs also updated the downgrade tutorial in light of this to install the older IOS50 that prevents this problem, you must have downgraded prior to that.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
