    bricked wii, system is booting from SD?

    So I had exactly the problem described here:

    http://www.wiihacks.com/bricked-wii-...tion-here.html

    I did everything, but instead of getting an install screen, my Wii actually booted from the SD card. All my games seem to be working.

    The problem is that when I eject a CD, or try to go back to home menu, my Wii screen turns black liked when it is bricked and I have to force shutdown.

    Of course, it won't work without the SD card.

    Something else, when I go in settings, the Wii version specified isn't the on I put on the SD.

    What I want to do is to get rid of all the hacks, homebrew & co. so I can update and use my wii normally as if it has always been clean (my little brother is really angry atm because he wants WiiSport resort). Can you please help me?

    Thanks in advance,

    -iQuit (the name says it all)

    PS: Yes, I tried both packs

    Do you have bootmii boot2 installed on your wii? As I believe you have, then reformat the wii with comex nand formatter and everything can be installed from scratch.
    So you have a clean and proper installation.

    Check out the thread in my signature. There you will find a link to the comex formatter which will put 3.1E on your wii
    You will have to install all the missing bits and pieces yourself though as it only installs discchannel and ios 30 ...

    You will have to start the formatter from bootmii and bootmii is the ultimate brick prevention software. Sometimes the formatter will not work for some odd reason.
    Do you have a nand backup?

    No, however I managed to boot the WAD manager, but for some reason it won't install the Firmware (even though it installs the IOS), requesting assistance.
