    Wii NOW DEAD!

    it wont load hbrew,i did an offline down/upgrade using nus downloader. didnt work so STUPID ME decided "I know i didnt listen!!!!" to remove all ios and wads using wad manager!!!!! Guess what HBREW wont load, i wonder if its becvause i uninstalled it by removing ios and wads and system menus from the wii!!!!!
    how stupid! the last thing im goingh to try is....

    Ive configured bootmii to autoload. now in my mad little way of thinking! if i insert wii sports resort " the new game with the 4.1 update on it, the wii may boot and ask me to install a system update via disc.

    IF not ive had a price of £50 to get it up and running! RATHER HIM THAN ME!. so it leads me to belive that there must be a way to get it back up and running.
    I know i should never of installed 2.9wad and then shouldnt of uninstalled it, and messed around with it.

    Patientce be a lesson to me. Thanks for your help.
    If i get it running again or he fixes it i will let you know!

    The only way i think he will repair it if my discupdate method doesnt work is by replacing the MB!
    take care and thanks again!!

    Bootmii will not autoboot discs directly. I think savemiifrii can if you're on 3.2 or lower, but that relies on part of the system menu(or its IOS?) being there - which you deleted.
    Plus, WSR only updates to v3.4. There are no games with even a 4.0 update AKAIK.

    Did you complete the bootmii NAND backup and have a ~512MB nand.bin file? Did it complete the backup? Factory bad sectors are normal.

    NO nand
    No menu
    No HOPE!

    i think i will just give it to this chap who lives by me, maybe he can get the wii's key and replace with another nand!

    thank you very much, ive learned what ios and wad are now by destroying my wii, whereas before i just followed instructions not really understanding what i was doing.

    So i will get it fixed make a backup nand. i will try to restore wii straight away using nand and if that works!!! I will have a tinker again. Bless you all.

    Ok i used cboot to load wadmanager and tried installing ios and system menus that matched via link you gave. i managed to get homebrew installed via wad but everything loaded red and black rather than black and white ie (wad manager/ homebrew) but bootmii loads as normal.
    I messed about with other ios and system menus and lost homebrew.

    now for some good news!!! it doesnt make sense but this is what happened.

    1: I backed up my corrupted nand using bootmii to sd card.
    2: I then restored my nand using bootmii!
    3: I loaded cboot2 and wad manager 1.5gc (link above in my earlier post)
    4: I installed cIOSv9 wad using wad manager1.5gc
    5: I installed homebrew channel wad using wad manager 1.5gc
    6: I then replaced the armboot file in the cboot bootmii folder on my sd card with the one from my backed up bootmi folder armboot (copy and paste over)
    7: Loaded bootmii.
    8: tried to load homebrew. NO video or audio signal.
    9: I then replaced the armboot file in the bootmii folder on my sd card with the one from my backed up cboot2 folder armboot (copy and paste over)
    10: I replaced boot.dol on my sd card (the cboot one) for homebrew 0.9 boot.dol file
    11: turned on wii booted to cboot which then tried to install homebrew 9 beta? using gcube controller.
    12: Homebrew could not detect a system menu! so failed to install.
    13: swapped homebrew boot.dol file on sd card for boot.dol from wadmanager 1.5 gc.
    14: Loaded wadmanager 1.5 gc.
    15: TOOK A GAMBLE!
    16: installed ios30-64-1040.wad. using gc wad manager 1.5
    17: installed system menuv290.wad using gc wad manager 1.5
    18: rebboted ................................... NOTHING!
    19: READ 6 above.
    20: loaded bootmii, tried home brew. no audio or video.
    21: READ 10.
    22: loaded cboot which then installed homebrew channel 9 beta using gamecube controller .
    23: homebrew installed as cios or ios 249.
    24: READ 6.
    25 : Loaded bootmii loaded homebrew (p.s) everything (wad manager homebrew still red and black instedad of blue hb and black and white wad manager)
    homebrew shows beta9 IOS35.
    26: made an apps folder on my sd card.
    27: put neogamma 6 boot.dol in apps on sd card (google it) one you have to access via homebrew((not a wad)) it has message on bottom of screen when loaded neogamma R6, IOS249 (REV9)
    28: load games and backups via neogamma 6 by disc usb or sd.
    29 : still got no system menu ie wii wont load without bootmii and games cant be played unless use homebrew/neogamma.


    I am not going to attempt anything else for the time being unless of course, i get some more genius advice from wiihacks!!!
    my brick thanks to telac99/bootmii/ cboot2/ waninkoko and many more genius people out there:- is not a wii! its a red menued homebrew that plays wii games!!!!!!

    what is needed is a universal unbrick disc that supports gamecube controller.

    IF IT AINT BROKE DONT FIX IT!
    IF ITS SORT OF BROKE TRY TO FIX IT!
    IF IT BREAKS SOME MORE THEN TRY SOME MORE!
    IF ITS DEAD READ UP ASK QUESTIONS & LISTEN!
    IF ITS SORTA FIXED THEN ACCEPT THAT AND LEAVE ALONE!!!!

    Thanks for all your help.
    I just hope that this method can be used for all the wiis with bootmii installed as boot2.

    LOOK under my other post low level brick for download links to wadmanager 1.5 gc and for telac99 link to cboot2.

    Very interesting. With my brick I had the bootmii bug which gives me a corrupt screen when selecting the HBC icon. So I always thought installing HBC again may help, but didn't look further and try an older version. I may try when I get time...

    23: homebrew installed as cios or ios 249.
    2 : is this the corrupt NAND you just backed up? or an older one you found?

    23 : what do you mean? wadmanager installed using IOS249 or HBC installed and shows it's using cIOS249?

    Have either of you tried cios downgrader?

    I had similar issues, then downgraded to 3.1, and used Waninkoko's Firmware updater to go to 4.1

    Worth a shot. It worked for mii



    Do either of you have preloader?
    As long as you can get into HBC, you can downgrade, then upgrade again.

    ****DONT DOWNGRADE IF YOUR SERIAL IS LU64 OR HIGHER**************

    I have bootmii and preloader. My problem is getting into HBC. It freezes on the corrupt screen with the SD card icon. I will try installing the older HBC...

    In my opinion, installing an older version cannot make things any worse, I mean you cant get into it now, so.............
