    Wii bricked with no bootmii - preloader - help

    Hello,

    Well after so many softmods i have to brick my wii, unfortunaly..

    Here what i did:

    I decided update my 4.1 firmware (with full hacking softmod) to 4.2 to see what happens..

    Well, my homebrew and preloader and bootmii gone, but i found i way to install it again.

    So with bootmii and preloader and homebrew channel installed again i decided do a downgrade to menu 3.2.

    OK, downgrade sucefully and update again to 4.1 menu system again with the excellent tutorial that we have in this forum.

    All run smooth but in the final step (installation of preloader 0.29) the installation hang up....

    Well, i decided turn off the wii in the button.

    When i turn on, nothing more happens.

    No way to acess preloader (holding reset button in the started).

    No way to acess bootmii (unistalled automatic by firmware i guess).


    Try with a original gamecub pad, plug in the 4 port and press the 4 directions keys at the same time (controller open of course), no have acess to menu version at the right corner on screen.

    So, when i turn my wii i have this:

    - Power button light green
    - No image or sound


    I tried universal disk recovery, autoboot dvd with wad manager, a original wii game to see if do some update or recovey (Mario and Sonic at The olympic games summer).. nothing..

    I guess that the wii dead at all.

    Any sugestions?

    EDIT: When turn on wii have one blue flash dvd drive only. Wii remote don't synchronise too.

    Sorry, sounds bricked for good. Did you install ios60patched prior to upgrading to 4.1.

    Yes, i follow your tuto in your signature.

    My wii "die" in the final step of the tuto, the preloader 0.29 installation. The final step.

    Yeesh, same thing happened to me. I would like to know how I can fix this since the Wii I was trying to hack wasn't mine, but a friend's. I stupidly decided not to install bootmii either.

    Preloader/Priiloader install can be risky if anything goes wrong.

    Remove your sd-card, usb devises, gc-cards
    Hold reset and boot the wii.
    Hopefully preloader/priiloader will start

    If preloader/priiloader still does not start, and you don't have bootmii installed as boot2, the wii is most likely bricked for good. You can try savemiifrii, but it is not likely to work.

    Nothing work with my wii.

    Sd card autoboot with bootmii, reset button to preloader, universal unbrick disk, wad manager autoboot dvd, gc gamepad...

    I don't try savemii fri dongle because i don't have it but i guess that is unfaith too.

    Well, after long and long hours decided contact NIntendo and send to warranty (warranty finish soon).

    I write a "good" letter explain that the wii stop work after doing some kind of update system

    Let's see if i have some luck.
