    Angry [B]fully bricked wii, 3.2E.[/B]

    I used tracha bug restorer to downgrade my IOS15 then patched the IOS36, I later restored the IOS15.
    After I then installed the WADS at IOS36 i was told to install, i later installed preloader 0.29, the installation then froze I restarted my wii and held on the reset button and took me to the preloader menu, I launched HBC and installed system menu update 4.1, after it finished it restarted my wii then all of sudden I got a black screen. I tried the reset to get me back to preloader but it couldn't load.
    Do i still have hope in repairing my wii?
    Could I use a mod-chip like drive key to autoboot?
    or can someone give me the best advice.
    I was using 3.2E and was on IOS60

    Preloader is uninstalled when you update your System Menu.

    Did you get any errors when installing 4.1? Did you use firmware updater 4.1 app or just install the 4.1 wad?

    Did you install IOS60 directly prior to update?

    Ok it's autobooting time.

    You will need:-

    Savemii or Gamecube controller mod
    Modchip - autobooting set
    Unbrick discs

    First..Gamecube controller in port 4, press all up, down, left, right when starting Wii. If you get a number appear in bottom right. Check youtube for more detail on this.

    If you get a number then there's a chance you can recover, it all depends on what bricked your Wii. If you don't then it's bin or Nintendo repair.

    Have a look in my mediafire, click my sig, for autoboot discs if you need them.

    There's a technique used to bring up the Wii's recovery console and it's been called savemiifrii. It used a gamecube controller modified so that all four directions onthe D Pad(looks like +) can be pressed simultaneuously. Doing this at the right time in Port 4 of the Wii when powering up boots the recovery console, allowing discs to be read and a potential route for recovery. I know there are several videos on youtube, search savemiifrii

    CD-R don't work on the Wii, only DVD-R

    Drivekey is a possibility but only if you can boot the recovery console.

    As for Nintendo -- I don't know, never bricked my Wii. They must have a support number. They may charge heavily, it depends if they can determine if you modded or not. Might be equiv to $75 or up to slightly less than a new Wii.
