    Red face Bricked Wii - How to revive only from Bootmii?

    Hi,
    I Bricked my wii, i would appreciate any help with fixing it. Ive been searching for a week trying different things but cant get them to work.

    As it stands:
    PAL Wii
    Full bricked (turn on and screen doesnt change, stays as blue screen)
    WiiKey vr1
    Bootmii installed (no NAND backup before bricked)
    HBC loads from Bootmii, and can run (some) apps
    Sys menu was 3.1E, was softmodding to 4.1 when it all went bad
    Wiimotes wont work
    I have GC controller, i tried SaveMiiFrii - didnt work

    I followed this guide:
    Wii Softmod Complete Toolkit PERFECTED (KRAXON) (download torrent) - TPB

    It bombed out in the 2nd last step, Patching ISO60 - gave me error ISO60 not found (it was on the SD but the guy that made the guide f***ed it up and gave it the wrong file name.)
    Before everyone asks why i didnt NAND backup before this happened, its because i was following the guide to the letter and it didnt say to backup yet. I hadnt touched my wii in like a year and a lot has changed in the modding scene i wast really aware of how much easier it is to brick a wii with softmodding, live and learn.


    Ive been told to use Wad manager - cant do cause needs wiimotes,
    Ive been told to use AnyRegion Changer -cant get it to load (tried putting the dol in apps > regionchanger dir, nothing happens in HBC, i think it needs Wiimotes anyway

    Seems my last resort is to get someones Nand back up and swap in my keys
    If anyone has any advice on what i should try before that, or indeed how to do that (ie where to get nand backups from, i think my wii was originally sys 2.9, very old).

    There's a small discussion concerning someone with a similar wiimote situation a few pages in on that thread as I recall. Might be worth a read.

    Download cboot2_wadmanager_1.5_mod.zip and extract to a formated sd-card
    Download IOS60-patched.zip and extract to sd:\wads
    Download system menu 4.1e to sd:\wads

    Place gc-controller in port 1
    Place sd-card in wii and boot
    Wadmanager should start
    Use ios249, load from SD
    Install ios60patched.wad
    Then
    Install System Menu v450 (4.1e).wad

    Keep nand emulation disabled. Everything else looks good.

    FAT32, use this tool to format if you have trouble.
