    Can Anybody Help Me??

    Ok, heres my issue, lets see if anybody can help...

    Apparently, I am one of the few whom have the current firmware *4.2U*, had my wii softmodded with homebrew, neogamma v7 (for burned games), had Wad Manager (which I used to install various .wad games as channels, always with success) and everything was working great...

    Until I installed a bad theme file (common thing), and like a jackass, I failed to backup my NAND, or bootmii as boot 2. Yes, Tealc will probably say something to the effect that why do people start with the hardcore things, but fail to ensure proper safety-nets!

    I am well aware of my own stupidity, but my issue is this: I have a WiiKey 2 installed, Don't think I have preloader (have gotten to the black screen by holding the reset button while powering up...but nothing else happens), I have tried to autoboot everything from UUDv2, v3, v4, Anyregionchanger, WadManager ISO, Recovery Discs, pretty much everything from Tealcs Sig, etc.....and NOTHING boots. Yes, I did the Savemiifrii with an authentic GC Controller and get the 4.2U down in the lower right hand corner...but thats it! It spins the discs while every once in a while the blue LED on the front flashes Twice, but nothing happens.

    I of course would love to think that I am not completely SOL, but if I am, Please let me know!

    Thank you for any input or any advise!!

    -Justin

    Those disks don't work for you because you did not install ios70 patched

    You should be able to autoboot many games, in the region of the wii only, by using Wii Autoboot Creator.zip to patch the iso to autoboot. It will only work for in region games, and not all games will work.

    You did not happen to install the Indiana PWNS savegame hack did you? Probably not, but it would help you now.

    Assuming that you do not have boot2 bootmii, preloader/priiloader(removed by theme wad install), Trucha patched ios70, or Indiana PWNS. You have one last option SDDm- you install many many large savegame files, channels, maybe DLC, filing your nand, forcing the wii to send you to data management to free up space. From there, 4.2 users can install Indiana PWNS, the use that hack to run the required apps, like loadmii. Read- New Unbricking Method For (Bannerbricks) 4.1v Wii's and below - GBAtemp.net

    Also note: it helps if your chip is configured to autoboot, perhaps even for the autoboot recovery disks. If your chip is not set to autoboot, you may wish to pull it out and put it into another wii to configure it for this. Also a system disk update to 4.3 would fix this, but that does not exists yet. So, disabling the update block on the chip is also a good idea.

    Thanks Mauifrog for the advise! I'll def try it and let you all know, but I would need the Indiana PWNS to do this sDDm hack??

    Also, I got the chip installed from a game shop where I live and I believe its set to autoboot...(taking into the fact that the guy whom put it in have done hundreds of them), and I am going to call him and verify.....but like I said, I put discs in that state that they are AUTOBOOT, but they just spin and sounds to me like the wii tries to read them, but nothing happens.

    I forgot to mention that the bad theme file I was attempting to install, was with Mymenufy and not a .wad file through wadmanager. I don't know if that helps with anything?

    Depends on the severity of the brick and a number of other things.

    Most importantly does savemiifrii work?
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    Also, if your system is not patched with the fakesign bug, you can not boot fakesigned disks. So without a patched system ios you can only boot nintendo games.
