Yes I believe that was the one.. sigh..
In another post TealC suggested in resposne to no video:
"If you've got no Video then it's more than likely bricked.
There aren't many ways to recover the software from a full brick situation. The only three I know of are firstly bootmii and secondly preloader, both of which need to be installed before it get's bricked, and finally the savemiifrii trick."
Am I beyond those choices now. is my Wii in heaven?
