    comex formatter to unbrick?

    i am trying to fix bricked wii with comex formatter.
    i load the boot.dol from bootmii
    i have all four wad's in wad folder.
    they are ntsc as stated.
    does anybody know how long this process should take or a guide to using it.
    i can change the system menu and region (checked via bootmii info screen)

    it seems to hang after installing the first 2 wads when on ios 30.
    EDIT:- all four wads have installed and now i am on 3.1u (checked in bootmii info screen) but still unable to load system menu.

    No its the same wii, just become an obsession!!!!!

    i read that forum (bit vauge)
    ANyways...

    comex formatter is an elf file which boots from SD section in bootmii.
    it formats the nand and installs wads

    Title ID Version
    -------------------------------------------------
    0000000100000002 257 (System Menu 3.1U)
    000000010000001e 1040 (IOS30, for menu)
    0001000848414b45 2 (EULA)
    0001000848414c45 2 (rgnsel)

    but from the bottom up. (it has to use ntsc/why i dont know)
    then i was told to use anyregion changer.

    i fancy trying it on my wii BUT AM A BIT CHICKEN!! buck buck buck, incase i get a total full brick as i assumed it would of deleted bootmii from boot2 2.

    i asked for a bit more info from the site where i got comex formatter, they are very laid back and must sip tea, whereas we gulp coffee and are very fast in replying. LOL
    its not even my wii, im giving it back thursday and even though it doesnt have to be repaired, i would of liked to of been able too.

    someone said it could be a physical problem with the nand as whenever i back up the nand using betwiin, the firs 8/10 blocks are left unprocessed.

    MORE COFFEE NEEDED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ARRRRRRRRRRRRGGGHHHHHH!
