    bricked wii with bootmii2 and homebrew.drivekey .THIS IS A STRANGE ONE!!!!!!!!!

    a friend has just popped a wii around he believes its been upgraded to 4.2 it did have a drivekey in it (now removed). it has bootmii as boot2 and i can load the homebrew channel but no apps show up on it.
    cboot2 tries to load but hangs.
    the system menu will not load.
    i am at a bit of a loss any suggestions.
    PS no good nand backup.
    she closed the door after the horse had bolted.

    homebrew chanell is 1.0.5
    ios61 v21.29

    update/
    when i load homebrew channel via bootmii all i can get by pressing x on the gamecube controller is

    OPTIONS
    DEVICE

    internal sd slot usb device

    sd gecko slot a sd gecko slot b

    SORT APPLICATIONS BY
    name date
    ok back.


    all i can alter is the name date ok and back bit of this screen, i cant highlight or select any of the sd, usb, sd geckoa or b choices???????

    Hi Jamie,

    At a complete guess I'd say the SD slot is not playing ball.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    i thought that, but have tried to load apps via usb and the stick isnt recognised (fat)
    also it loads bootmii and then homebrew via sd?

    i was wondering if the drivekey may have done something upon upgrading?

    ive tried usb formatted as fat using a 3.8gig stick with the apps folder on the root of the stick, as it would be using sd.

    im trying to use betwiin to dump a copy of my nand to this half dead one.
    i installed python and open ssl and numpty and pryc (thingy) but um it isnt like RONSEAL!!
    thanks anyway, i think the drivekey has something to do with it. 4.2 and modchips are not very healthy
