    Bricked my wii downgrading from 4.2 to 4.1 wanted to ask questions about autobootdisc

    i been reading the forums like crazy these past 2 days, i have a brick wii i tried to downgrade from 4.2 to 4.1 i restarted the wii and its just a black screen

    Yes i know i should of installed bootmii but for some reason i could not install it,it wouldn't work, i tried the savemiifrii hack with the offical GC controller it that doesn't work either
    i read here that you need a modchip but the thing is my wii cant start the recovery mode with savemiifrii

    i wanted to ask do i need to boot into the recovery mode using the gb controller savemiifrii before i use any autoboot disc??
    or can i simply just install the Drivekey modchip to run the autoboot disc with a black screen brick wii??? (without using wiimiifrii)

    i also read that some games that have a high firmware can update the wii system but is it possible with a brick wii


    i also have a 2nd wii 4.0 with bootmii installed & savemiifrii actually works on that wii would that help in anyway? i doubt it but i dont want to miss anything, im beginning to lose hope to tell you the truth and im guessing there's not much i can do

    Bootmii, preloader, or savemiifrii are unavailable then there is nothing you can do.

    You need to boot into recovery mode with savemiifrii to use the autoboot disks.

    i was afraid you would say that so buying a autoboot Drivekey modchip would be useless then right, thanks for your time i really do appreciate it

    thank you so much for the post

    what are the chances that nintendo will find out that the wii system has been modified? and if they do find out how much do you think they charge ??

    From what I have read if the tech is following his bosses rules he will check your wii for softmods- which will void your warranty and they may charge more than normal (with your approval). But also possible the person on the other end won't care.

    so if they do decided to charge more they do send it back to you if you choose not to pay right?
