    Full Bricked Wii with black screen. No boot2/priiloader. What to do?

    So I was downgrading my wii from 4.2U to 3.2U then to 4.1U and low and behold, my wii is bricked with the black screen. Nothing shows after I power on my wii. After many researches from google and other sites, I guess my wii is fully bricked and I'm sure I'm out of luck. I don't have bootmii boot2, no pre/priiloader, and I tried savemiifrii. No version number show up when i attempt savemiifrii. If savemiifrii doesnt work, will savemii dongle work? I also found out some modchips such as drivekey can autoboot. Will that work? And yes it's not the bluetooth module since I'm able to power on the wii using the wiimote.

    You should find the guy who told you to downgrade from 4.2 to 3.2, then upgrade to 4.1- when you find him, kick his ass. There is only one possible outcome from what you have done. As you have found, that outcome is a full brick, which is exactly what should have happened in the process you followed.

    Sorry to say, but there is nothing you can do to fix this brick.

    If you have a nand dump you could use a nand programmer to reprogram the nand.

    If you have a vulnerable boot1 that supports boot2 bootmii, YES, no nand backup needed

    If you have a nand backup- YES

    If you do not have a vulnerable boot1 or a nand backup- NO

    Hmm..i'm probably going to send it to nintendo for repairs. Will they even repair it? I opened up the wii before; have noticeable markings on the D2C pins due to wiiclip; modified IOSs, HB installed, no stickers and missing screws for the case, etc.

    I don't know, you may be better off buying a new one.

    It's out of warranty, but I believe I bought this back at the end of 2007, back in the D2C days. Therefore I know I have to shell out $75 to nintendo, but not sure if they will repair it. I could try to find a motherboard off of ebay or buy a broken wii from someone else (that powers on at least to menu screen). I'm not too confident about the nand flashing and not sure whether if boot1 supports boot2 bootmii. Again it was from 4.2 to 3.2 then to 4.1, a big mistake i made but lesson learned.

    I am sure your wii supports bootmii in boot2 as it is old enough. So it can be fixed by flashing the bootmii blocks in it. Is there no one near that can do it for you?
