    Bricked after NeoGamma install

    Hello,
    A friend attempted to softmod my Wii following (the majority) of this tutorial: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...y-4-2-wii.html

    He didn't back up the install, use boot2 and said the was issues installing the preloader.

    After installing NeoGamma r8 and restarting the Wii powers on but the screen is blank (no signal message from my TV)

    Is there anything I can try? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Installing Neogamma r8 isn't likely to full black screen brick a Wii. It must be something else at play.

    A couple of things to try..

    Hold reset and power on the Wii. Do you get Priiloader?

    Remove any DVD, press power and watch the DVD slot for a quick dual flash from blue LED. Yes or No?

    Can the Wii remote bring the Wii out of Red light standby by pressing the Wii remote power button. Yes or No?


    And failing to follow the whole of a guide is EPIC FAIL. Only those knoweldgeable have the luxury of choosing which parts to perform and which parts to leave out.

    Thanks for the quick reply!
    In response to your questions

    1. Holding reset does not bring up the Priiloader

    2. There is a quick dual flash from the LED

    3. The Wiimote can turn the Wii on from the red light

    And yes..it was a huuuge epic fail! I thought my friend knew what he was doing... smh

    Again thank you very much for your help!

    Place either of the following files, once extracted to your SD card depending on your Wii's region. You should have just a bootmii folder at root of your SD card.

    European/Aus
    bootmii folder-PAL.rar

    USA
    bootmii_folder-NTSC.zip

    Thx to Mauifrog for the file links.

    By the way do you know what System Menu your Wii is?

    Mr. Tealc I just want to say that I really appreciate you helping me here.

    The Wii Menu was 4.2

    No problem.

    Does bootmii start when you put the SD card, loaded with those files, in your Wii when you start the Wii?

    If you do indeed have the double bootmii DVD slot flashes, have the necessary files on your SD and it doesn't load bootmii then you need to use a different SD card.

    Bootmii does work with a wide range of SD cards but fails with some.

    I have a Sandisk 2GB microSD and a Kingston 2GB microSD and they both work with bootmii.

    sorry, the blue light only flashes once ( I was told twice by my friend while I was at work) Not sure if it changed, or if ti was always once. I'm guessing I'm out of luck then?

    Ok grab a Gamecube controller, bung it in Port 4. While pressing Up, DOwn, Left and Right on the D pad hit the power button. This technique is called savemiifrii and gives you a recovery menu. lmk how you get on.
