I know that savemiifrii is supposed to display the system firmware version but it doesn't display anything...
    so my 3 questions are:

    1) what should I do now?
    2) would a drive key help?
    3) must I send it back to nintendo?
    Read and do your softmodding homework before any softmodding projects and be patient during the installation process. Realize the sensitivity of the situation, sometimes a small error can cost you a brick. Use common logic. Remember to never uninstall IOS' and always install the correct system menu. Those are a few of the basics.

    The magic question is: Was Bootmii installed as boot 2 or as an IOS ???


    As a last resort send it in to Nintendo. Nintendo will repair it. I just don't know how they may respond to repairing a Wii' that have been bricked from hacking. Individual repair cases may vary. I sent my Wii in several months ago for non-softmod related repairs, but left tickets from where I deleted a few wads but didn't erase the tickets off the Nand. They brought it to my attention and still fixed mine no extra fees etc. I'm just curious as to how many bricked Wii' they get in nowadays from Hacking failures. If I were you I tried to hold out on sending it in until you've done everything in your power to save it yourself.

    US residents pay $75.00 and pay for the shipping/handling that comes out to around 85.00 + and whatever the insurance might cost to include. Unless the Wii is under warranty then Nintendo pays the cost of the repair and shipping after the shipping label is printed out and put on the package.
    Nintendo' most inspired core game titles are stuck overseas. Nintendo Of America sux when it comes to the localization of these game titles as they court with their new found casual gamer/soccer mom audience this console generation. Thus indirectly promoting the growth of Homebrewing & basically telling their core audience if they want it, mod chip or Homebrew it. Thanks Nintendo! My Wii and its functionalities have never felt more complete than when I took my first sip of the Brew. - Brewaholic

    I tried savemiifrii and I tried bootmii (I either installed that as an IOS or the menu wad I installed uninstalled it) and I don't think a modchip will help.... that's all I can do in my power right?

    Your repair must've been out of warranty?? It seems like the out of warranty repairs get sent to a Nintendo subcontractor in Syracuse, New York if the consumer is on the east coast. Under warranty repairs get sent to back home in Washington with all their other factory fresh and refurbished Wii brothers and sisters.

    I have a question regarding all this "sending in to Nintendo" talk.

    Has anyone heard of there ever being consequences above and beyond just voiding of one's warranty for sending in a modded wii?

    I mean, let's say someone sent in a wii with wiiware or virtual console channels installed on it that they didn't actually pay for. Isn't that some pretty damning evidence? We've all heard of these music companies taking some random teenager to court for illegally downloading a handful of songs, isn't this the same concept?
