    I think that is bad. Was ios50 perhaps the one wad that failed to install?

    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?

    It is dead
    It may be possible to reprogram the nand, but in its current state it is beyond repair. Sorry.

    If you want to spend $40 or so, you could buy a Wii with a broken drive online, swap out your good drive, and then sell your bricked Wii with a bad drive online. You could get roughly $20 for the bad drive and $30 for the bricked main board with all screws and the Wii case. The Wii with the bad drive will cost you $80-$90. If you're lucky, the drive will just have some bent prongs that can be bent back into place, but that's only about 25% of drives. If you're dishonest, you could say you have no way of knowing the prior history of the Wii and only stand to lose about $20 as compared to selling it with a known faulty drive. I can't believe Nintendo still charges $75 plus tax for out of warranty repairs although that might make sense if bricked Wiis require total system board replacements.
