    Bricked during play?

    Hello,

    I modded my Wii a time ago, had system-menu 4.1E.

    After a while I wanted to play NSMB but couldn't, because of the 4.1E firmware.

    So, i removed the softmod, updated and put in a Flatmod chip (V2 for NSMB).

    The disc of NSMB was an origenal bought game, and worked fine.

    After about 30 minutes of play, the Wii crashed. I pulled out all plugs, and tried to reboot the console. Now the console only gives me a black screen, while the led goes green. It won't shut off unless i keep it pressed for several seconds.

    Can it be that is wat bricked because of the removal of the softmod?

    And what is the solution to my problem?

    I can get in the recovery mode using a modded GC-controller. Does this mean I still have a chance in succeeding?

    Are you able to switch the Wii from Red to Green using the Wiimote power button?

    I cannot connect my Wiimote, it was used on another Wii in the meantime. Wasn't my greatest idea ever I guess...

    Hmm no it wasn't.

    Failure to switch on the Wii with Wiimote is indicative of a faulty Bluetooth module. The fact that you can get the recovery menu up is indicative that no major damage has been caused to system IOS but it's difficult to pin a fault anywhere seeing as you have synced your Wiimote with another Wii.

    Are you able to autoboot the NSMB disc when you get the recovery menu up?

    He doesn't boot anything. With the recovery menu I mean the black screen with the version in the bottom (4.2E). Nintendo's official wii backup disc v1.31 doesnt do anything either.

    Is it normal for the Wii to crash during a game, instead of directly after the softmod?

    It played for over 30 minutes, perfecly with no errors. Then it just crashed.

    Did you reboot after messing with the softmod?

    In particular what files did you change/remove to affect removal of the softmod?

    What type of softmod was it, full with cIOS or just straight HBC?

    Did you install bootmii as parft fo the softmod? If so, is it Bootmii/boot2 or Bootmii/IOS?

    Did you install Preloader/Priiloader?

    Yes, I tested it first with Mariokart, worked fine, after that i updated to 4.2E. Then installed the flatmod chip en tried again, it still worked fine. After that I even reconnected the poor thing (had to go back i'm my closet) an played NSMB for about 30 min.

    Can't tell, I wasn't the one that softmodded the Wii. It was done by someone else. I had HBC and Gamma Loader

    Did you install bootmii as parft fo the softmod? If so, is it Bootmii/boot2 or Bootmii/IOS?
    Can't tell. I followed a tutorial online to remove the softmod and put it back in 'virgin' state. For that I had to go back to sys menu 3.2 (cIos downgrader?) and then update using Waninko's updater to 4.1E. After that I connected to the Wifi and updated tot 4.2

    Did you install Preloader/Priiloader?
    Same here, can't really tell. I didn't do the softmod, just removed it.

    So you were on some firmware or other, then downgraded to 3.2, then updated to 4.1 and then updated to 4.2?

    Check for dual flash from the DVD slot when you power the Wii.

    There are a number of unbrick disc in my Mediafire, I suppose you could try them but seeing as you removed your softmod you are probably wasting your time Free File Hosting Made Simple - MediaFire

    If nothing works there you could try getting a replacement Bluetooth module and fitting it.

    4.1 with softmod. Back to 3.2 and then to 4.1 with Waninko's. After that 4.2 via Nintendo.

    There is no dual flash, allready checked that.

    By saying that I'm probably wasting my time on those discs, you actually mean that you think its the bluetooth module?

    I don't know what to think really but failing after 30 minutes of playing is just strange. Bricks usually happen directly after removing/messing with important IOS and not several reboots and 30 minutes.

    You might be able to boot one of those discs but because you now lack a cIOS your ability to affect any changes will be very limited.

    If you can load one though you might be able to use the Sync button on the Wii to disprove the BT module.
