    Fully bricked!

    Please help.

    I have successfully installed hbc and downgraded to 3.2 and have been playing games. Then I ran the 4.1 update and fully bricked my wii. It doesn't load and I get the 'black screen of death'. How do I fix this? any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Did you downgrade from 4.2 by any chance?

    You just stub IOS60 bricked your Wii.

    When you are at 4.2 it installs an empty version of IOS60 version 6400, when you downgrade this stub remains on your Wii. Then, when you upgraded by disc the program saw you had a higher version of IOS60 than it had on disc and skipped that part of the update.

    So your Wii is trying to run off a non operating system.

    It's your fault, you blew it. You broke the cardinal rule of softmodding, NEVER upgrade using disc or internet. Plus you followed a stupid guide that bricks Wiis, and now you have to spend money to get it fixed. Make sure you thank whoever wrote the guide.

    This is why we don't have such guides here on Wiihacks, yet people seem to find their way here when they break their Wiis, odd that.

    Unless you have bootmii installed as boot2 you are well and truly out of luck, you'll have to decide whether to bin it or return it to Nintendo.

    thanks for that. It was only till after I bricked it that I found this useful site. I wish I had of before then. So what are my risks of returning it to nintendo?

    Well they may charge you heavily for it, or they may do it for free. It really depends on if the Wii is under warranty and if they can be bothered to check it. How old is the Wii?

    Send it in under 1 year warranty. Give them a call and tell them it went to black after running a disc update for New Super Mario or Endless Ocean 2 or something.

    return the bricked Wii to Ninty and tell her the console blacks out after the WiiFit_plus_taiwan disc (chinese version, which was released recently) was loaded by ur little child.
