    Well if you'd installed it you'd probably know.

    Mario Kart has a system menu 3.1 update and Wii Sports Resort updates to 3.4.

    4.0 installs a 'stub' ios50, the stub ios50 is a newer version than the one installed by 3.4 so is left alone by the update, leaving your system menu trying to run off a stub=full brick.

    The only way to recover this is by suing bootmii (boot2) to reinstall your broken system menu. You can only install bootmii as boot2 when your Wii is working.

    So you have two choices:-

    Bin it.

    Send it to Nintendo and pay for repair.

    I was afraid of that but I knew the risks going into hacking it. Somehow I doubt trying to sue them would work out :-) Think it's out of the realm of possibility for a hacker to come up with a way to boot into the wii bios and fix something like this?

    It's not beyond the realms of possibility I suppose but I wouldn't hold your breath as it'd take some form of hardware to hack right into the NAND. That's why bootmii is good as it changes the way the Wii boots so we can get in there before the system menu loads.

    I've lost count of the people who have downgraded and then used the game updates and bricked their Wii like this. What's worse is that not one of them needed to downgrade in the first place and understood less why they were doing it.

    Won't be the last.

    Obviously I am one of them and have no problems admitting it. 249.99 lesson learned.
