    Bricked Wii - removed IOS..

    Hello,

    It is one of those times where I feel very stupid.
    I have probably definitively bricked my wii, but still checking with you.
    It was very late at night and got upset with CorpIOS.. so I removed them all with wad manager.
    and there while i was about to re-intall iOS.. I pushed the wrong button and reboot my wii.

    As a result it is now blacked screen with green light and CD turning.

    Here is the list of iOS removed:
    CIOS9v2.wad, CIOS11v2.wad, CIOS12v2.wad, CIOS13v2.wad, CIOS14v2.wad, CIOS15v2.wad, CIOS17v2.wad, CIOS20v2.wad, CIOS21v2.wad, CIOS22v2.wad, CIOS28v2.wad, CIOS30v2.wad, CIOS31v2.wad, CIOS33v2.wad, CIOS34v2.wad, CIOS35.wad, CIOS36v2.wad, CIOS37Bv2.wad, CIOS38Bv2.wad, CIOS53Bv2.wad, CIOSBUGFIX55v2.wad

    Any idea knowing wiikey gen1 is installed?

    Thank you!

    I'm guesing you bricked your wii (full brick). The only 2 ways i read it's repairable is to send it to nintendo or to use Betwiin and a modchip which can flash the nand.
    the 2nd methode seems timeconsuming and you have to solder and desolder.

    good luck.

    What type of chip is the nand chip. I was wondering if its possible to remove and reflash. Where is it located on the main board or the drive.

    I made this rare stupid mistake one time, but I was doing it intentionally with intentions of re-installing new fresh wads in the place of the ones I uninstalled though. For some reason I foregot the one rule of thumb "One should never uninstall any IOS' " even custom ones. Anyway I realized my mistake, remembered the rule, ran Bootmii and my Wii lived through it.

    Bootmii/Boot2 can save a Wii life.

    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

    do you have preloader? if so boot into homebrew channel and install the missing IOS(s) via wad manager, you can get the originals from NUS Downloader, i think you can also use Wanikokos Downgrader, this will downgrade your wii thus re-installing all the IOS's.Please say you have pre loader, you would definitely need this before uninstalling IOS, which you should never do anyway, as you know.

    Proof that NAND restore CAN be done with BootMii as IOS....

    Got this from another site, looks to me as if the scaremongers are people who have bootmii installed as boot2 and whant it to look like they have something that others don't, just my opinion :

    Sometimes you just have to grow a pair, throw caution to the wind, check your facts, and go for it. Here is what I have experienced boys & girls.

    First of all you want to go back to one of your SD cards and reformat it to FAT. Not Fat32, not NTFS, not WBFS, FAT. Plain ole simple FAT. As in the dos command:

    format o:/FS:FAT (substitute your drive letter for O:/) duh!

    Then copy your bootmii files over to it. No, not any nand backups you might have previously done, just the bootmii files in the folder called "bootmii". Then redo your NAND backup. Make damn sure that there are no errors on it, none. Not even one that says error verifying a bad block. Even the bad blocks get verified. It should say verify successful when it is done.

    Okay then, go back out to your sysmenu and make any change, move some of your menu around. Rearrange things to make it look just a little different. Doesn't have to be a drastic change, just change it a little.

    Then go back into HBC and reload Bootmii. Then select the copy from SD card option and it will give you that warning if you don't have it as boot2 la de dah! Oh I am scared now, Bullshit! Just don't be messing with power cords when you do this crap and pray the good lord doesn't hate you and sends a power outage your way when you start this. It will tell you if you want to start the simulation mode, hit A+B+X+Y. This does NOT mean hit one after the other or hitting A&B then X&Y. You have to hit all 4 at the same time. I thought for sure I was not going to get past this when I just slammed my hand down on the controller and mashed all 4 buttons at exactly the same time and guess what? The darn thing started going through the simulated load and when it was done with the simulation this is what it looked like:



    As you can see the simulation was successful and it is ready to write 46 blocks as represented by the green blocks on the display. You might ask why only 46 blocks? That is because it is only re-writing the blocks it finds that are different than the Nand you just read. I only moved a couple menu items around so thereby it was not a big change and only needs to restore 46 blocks to put the Wii's Nand back the way it was when I did the backup. I hope you all are following this because I won't be drunk enough to explain it again.

    So I do as the screen says and hit start and it blows right through those 46 blocks in a couple seconds and it looks like this:



    And as you can see I HAZ SUCCESS! :mrgreen: It wrote the 46 blocks and then asked me for money. :lol: And now that I see that it does work I might even consider it. But there you have it, the damn thing does work installed as IOS and works well. I went out to my Sysmenu and everything was back on the screen the way it was before I moved it around. I have even turned off the Wii completely and back on to find it still working just fine. Preloader loads, HBC & HBB load, Connects to WiFi, USB Loader CFG works. It all bloody works just dandy.

    Now who is buying me the first drink? Damn I'm thirsty!

    Thank you all for your replies. Can you confirm that bootmii has to be pre-installed in order to work?

    Right now, when plugging my bootmii card in the WII, I still get the black screen - I don't know how to access my sysmenu.

    Is there another way to run bootmii? Any special button to push on my gamepad? Would savemii have a chance to work without all those IO's?

    Onn my side I will continue trying.

    Thx

    Something like this happened to me yesterday pal and I thought my wii was well and truly bricked.

    you need to download a downgrader wad to your sd card and run it on your wad manager via homebrew channel once done your system menu should start.

    If not sorry but you need a new wii.

    you need bootmii installed and nand backedup BEFORE you brick.

    Have you tried holding down reset when you power on the wii? can you get into preloader? can you get into HBC?
