    Bricked Wii with 3.4E rescue menu

    I need some small help over here fixing a Bricked wii.
    Used the GC to get into the rescue menu. Get 3.4(Euro)
    so it is fixable with a bit of luck.
    Put in a wasabi DX in autoboot mode.
    However I cannot load any disc.
    I tried Wii Fit as I believe 4.0 update is on that disc.
    having that disc in when I enter the rescue menu the 3.4 disappears but nothing happens.
    Also tried to burn some rescue disks but it could be that I need the verbatim dvd-R disks. Don't have them at hand.
    My main problem is to get something working here. I already have the appropriate wad files to fix the wii on my hdd

    If an update could fix your Wii then you'd need New Super Mario Bros which is about the only game that has 4.1 so far, apart from a few Japanese games. However inserting a 4.1 disc would only fix a semi-brick, which you probably do not have. WiifitPlus does not have 4.0.

    You didn't mention what caused your brick so I'm assuming it a Banner brick seeing as you say you have some Wads ready.

    If you have Health and Safety screen you can try maintenanance mode, hold - and + and stab at A a few times. You should be able to launch Wad manager from there.

    If you have bootmii/boot2 you can launch HBC and Wad manager through a few different techniques.

    There's a few Unbrick discs in my mediafire http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=b...eada0a1ae8665a

    I don't know what caused the brick as I am fixing it for someone else
    It happened by playing around in the HBC
    There is not bootmii installed, tried that already. I dont get a health screen. Only black screen.
    My main concern is now to get something working on my wasabi as I tried loading burned rescue disks on other functioning Wiis without success too

    I wonder what was removed then. It's clearly not IOS50 as you wouldn't get the recovery menu.

    Have you tried the bluetooth module? Does the Wii switch from off to on with the Wiimote power button?

    I don't have the matching wiimote so I can test the on/off trick. You need a synced wiimote to be able to do so. I will try and swap out the modules and see what happens
    Edit: just swapped out the bluetooth board and it works like a charm again.
    Man I could have started with that ...
    Thanks Tealc (btw I love stargate, got all original dvd boxes at home )

    No, I don't think wifi has any bearing on startup procedures.

    Swapping the modules sounds about the easiest thing to do first.

    It is but I rather not take the Wii apart when I don't have to
    And all the other Wiis I repaired the bluetooth was never the issue. This was my first 'bluetooth' issue
    However this is a much easier fix then doing the infectus approach
