    Unhappy Fully Bricked Wii Black screen on start up

    I recently soft modded my wii and yesterday I bought a new game and tried to play it. The wii wanted to do a update for the game and I clicked accept. After installing the screen turned black. When I restarted the wii the screen was still black. I don't have any idea of what happened but I'm pretty sure the wii is fully bricked. How do I unbrick my wii?

    Cool Me too

    I think my wii is also bricked with the black screen, though not from a disc update. Can someone help? Otherwise I'll send it back to nintendo and when I get it back, I'll softmod it again.

    If you gave more details what you have on your wii maybe someone might be inclined to help you.

    Do you have bootmii as boot2?

    Do you have preloader installed before you had the black screen? Hold down reset and see if anything come up when you power up.

    OK...
    I used Waninkoko's Firmware Updater 4.2 to update my Wii to 4.2 but even before that my Wii was bought in late 2008; in other words, its boot1 immune to BootMii as boot2. I had preloader 0.29 installed but it was removed when I used the Firmware Updater. I held reset and nothing came up, it was just a black screen, although it sounded like it started normal. I also connected it to other TVs to see if it was the TV, it wasn't.

    Can you help me??

    Ok were you having trouble before you updated to 4.2?

    its boot1 immune to BootMii as boot2.
    Not really sure what you are trying to ask here. Bootmii installs to boot2 which boots before preloader which boots before system menu. And yes when you update to newer firmware it does away with preloader. Don't know what waninkoko 4.2 firmware updater does to your boot2. If it writes boot2v4 to your boot2 it will do away with bootmii. I would wait to see what someoone with more knowledge has to say about whether your wii can be recovered or not. Sorry I could not be of any help.

    My Wii is immune to Bootmii as boot2 and the preloader was removed when I used the firmware updater 4.2, which would override the boot2 with boot2v4.

    What I am trying to say is that I have a nand backup of my system, but I can't get to the Bootmii as ios to restore it. Can you help me??

    No bootmi, No preloader, your only hope is savemiifrii. Get a gc controller and give it a try.

    If it is original Nintendo, probably. If it is generic, probably not. It is possible that there is a pin in the directional that prevents all four from being depressed at once. This is typically not an issue with generic versions.
