    Exclamation Bricked Wii Help me Please

    I have bricked my wii when trying to install firmware 3.2(dont know if i deleted my old firmware which was 4.0U or just overwrit it) i had HBC on it and when i pressed home button on HBC it said start bootmii(so im assuming i have bootmii) no preloader(that i know of) and no starfall(for sure) couldnt install wads and i do have DVDx. when i start my wii it will turn on and the disc drive will spin discs but no display or sound on screen. i tried savemiifrii but nothing came up not even the firmware version at the bottom-right of the screen(could be my controller, Am using 3rd party one, Gamestop brand)

    please help me what do i do

    P.S. if not fixable would nintendo be able to detect Softmod on wii if it doesnt display anything or have sound

    Do you have a LU64+ type Wii?

    If you did have preloader then it's probably gone when you downgraded.

    Are you able to launch bootmii/boot2 using the SD card with the bootmii files in place?

    If you are LU63 I'd imagine you are out of luck where Bootmii/boot2 is concerned. Just to be sure compare your Wii DVD slot flash against mine.

    If it is different then you have no boot2, if you also have no preloader then there's nothing you can do besides swapping motherboard or returning to Nintendo for expensive repair.

    You should not have downgraded, you should not have followed a crappy tutorial on Youtube. Let this be a warning to others too.

    Yeah mine only flashes once...so is there a way that nintendo can detect the softmod since there is no display and no sound...cause mine is still under nintendo's warranty

    Thank you very much for all your help

    Yes they can detect it, if they bother to check. Fingers crossed that they don't.
