    Bricked Wii Help Please

    So i was using my wii today and wanted to install DvDx so i could run games from DvD's as i was reading something i saw that i would have to downgrade to 3.2 so i followed instructions to downgrade and when i got done downgrading to 3.2u it went back to the HBC, i then restarted my wii and when it came back on it didnt i just went to a black screen. I now have what i believe to be a bricked wii and need help fixing it, please help. Thanks.

    did you install bootmii as boot2 or priiloader?

    can you use SaveMiiFrii by pressing all directions on the D pad of a GC controller or dance pad?

    you probably installed something that bricked the wii when you shouldn't have, common mistake. also you will need to take apart the casing on the gc controller to get SaveMiiFrii working

    triwing screwdriver or a modded screwdriver. you could also drill the screws out (but you wont be playing games with the controller anymore)

    you will get it back but it could cost a bit since hacking your wii voids the waranty

    You're screwed, sorry man. Four days ago, then I assume you were running at least a 4.1 Wii. You cannot downgrade a 4.1 without removing the stubs they put in place, lest you end up with a brick (which is what happened to you).

    If it's four days old, just take it back to wherever it is you bought it and say it broke when it prompted you to do a f/w update.
