    lost my SD, my wii is bricked I think

    After the Wii Sport Resort update my wii, now all I am getting is a blank screen. I normally can get into preloader but I cannot find my SD, does preloader requires the SD? Can I create a new SD card to get my preloader up so I can unbrick my WII?

    Oh dear.

    Did you downgrade your Wii from 4.0 to 3.2 recently?

    By the way preloader does not require SD.

    Yes I downgrade to 3.2

    I did have it dowgrade to 3.2 but was up to 4.0 to play puch out and other new games, it was just fine so I felt safe when I was able to run preloader when resort as me to upgrade. Now preloader woudn't even come up, I think it is dead.

    So did you use Wanikoko's update to get your Wii back to 4.0?

    Yes I did

    I used Wanikoko's to get my up to 4.0 and I was playing puchout, ghost busters, etc..., man I should never try to run the update from sport resort. And yes it is the same region game so I didn't think I could brick it.

    Well from what you have described you are the third or fourth person to fall into the 3.2 downgrade game disc upgrade full brick trap just today. I didn't think updating with Wankiko would affect the same way, it seems it does.

    I might be wrong of course.

    Preloader doesn't work on 3.4, which is what WSR would have updated you to.

    If you've been on 4.0 in the past and didn't install an IOS50 as part of your downgrade to 3.2 then you are screwed.

    Savemii/free will not work with this brick as you have no operating system.

    Of course your birck might be something completely different, at the moment only you know what you did.
