    Question Need help with a weird full brick

    Hi, il'l put my story all here (it's a bit long, but i rather put all info on some place, so maybe the experts can help me out, than creating a lot of threads)

    I got a wasabi dx (3.0 autoboot on, region free on, and block import update off), and a console i bought i while ago already bricked (no history on it).

    Grabbed some info on the internet and got my hands on it. What i did:

    In RM it showed 3.1U (console is a old USA, didn't have any type of softmod, preloader, hbc, bootmii, boot2, etc, was only with a wiikey1).

    Tried to boot any region changer, worked fine, didn't know what to do with it, but noticed the number for the region was wrong so i put the usa on (suggested by the program, 49 i think) no luck, booted again, tried the upgrade to 3.2, asked for a internet connection so i aborted.

    Tried the autoboot wad manager (1.2) loaded fine, won't sync a wiimote.

    Tried some games, most won't boot, but they were new games, so i grabbed a old one (ice age 2) it showed warning screen and synced. Game froze at the next screen (ice age 2 logo with some info, etc..) but i didn't bothered as i only needed the sync.

    The wad manager worked. So i tried to install the system menu 3.2 (289 from nus) it intalled ok.
    But didn't fix the brick (just black screen).

    Booted again, reading found out that i needed to insall ios 30 together, so i grabbed the nus autodownloader and downloaded all the files for 3.2 sys menu (the program download all the needed ios automatic, u choose to not download any ios stubbed only the latest working version.)

    With wadmanager 1.2 it wouldn't install the ios 30 (error ret 1039 or 1037). also got many errors during various of the ios installation, but some installed ok.

    Grabbed the uud disc v3 i believe and it got the wad manager 1.5 but same error.

    So i tought (the problem might be with the ios it's loading, tried some, but none worked.

    I got cioscorp 3.6 pack and installed (throught the wad manager) all the cios files that comes with it.
    thinking it would fix since all the files should be trucha, etc...

    Again failed installing ios 30. Noticed that some discs stopped working (got many burned at that point, like hbc intall, autoboot, wii backup disc, etc... (my first tought was to intstall hbc, but the disc wouldn't load on the first place, thats why i messed with the wadmanager)

    So i searched for a wad install of hbc (couldn't find a boot2 wad instalation of bootmi), and the cios 249, and installed them (i know that proper install of the cios 249 must be via the hbc, but i was desperate, just installed a wad one)

    Couldn't load the hbc (didn't know how), but i choose the ios 249 on the wad manager and yes, it allowed me to install the ios30 for sys menu and also the sysmenu with no errors, so i tought "now it should be fixed" so i also installed all the ios that come with the package for 3.2 cuz since the game would freez after start and many wouldn't work it might have more corrupted or missing ios, after installed all it ocurred me that the last of each version, even if not stubbed, would probably not have the trucha anymore, but since all installed ok i tought it would be fixed anyway.

    Resulting in a still black screen console and now it won't load any of the disc i had burnt that previously worked (no trucha).

    So where can i go from here? I believed the cios 249 installed and working with wad manager would allow the uuds disc to load but the uudv4 won't load. (Was thinking if the system menu 3.2 v289 wad would erase or rewrite the cios 249?). Also didn't installed ios 36 so maybe this one is still trucha (i installed the cIOS36-v3094-v3.6 from the cioscorp, will that load the discs? Would the system menu 32. v289 update overwrithe this ios?

    Also, not all the ios where overwritten only a handful of ios came i noticed that ios 16 for instance didn't come with the update and i was able to install some ios16 xxx prod.wad from some place, was wontering if patching the uudv4 to load for this one would work, or witch ios should i patch which disc that should work again (maybe some of the cios corp files not ovewritten can load a disc, or ios4, dunno). I'm a little bit lost with a lot of discs here.

    Also, since it won't work with all the ios installing, maybe it isn't even a brick, where should i look at the board looking for problems?

    Can i burn a game with the update 3.4 on it, would probably fix the console or just get things worse?
    Witch games are know to have the 3.4 (or 3.3) on it? Patching to autoboot is necessary? With a program, or just changing the first byte to 0? Will the game load then ask for a update, or just update? How many time should i wait on the recovery menu?

    And finally, can't i write on the nand with something homemade the sectors for the boot2 (like the lpt writer that exist for the 360, i was able to jtag and xell some consoles with that, if there's something similar for the wii nand, i should be able to install and write the boot 2 getting the needed access again.). There's no reseller of the infectus chip on my country and importing would take like 60 days.

    If anyone managed to read it all and can point me out to something il'l be happy to test out, thx a lot in advance and got luck with all the bricks out there.

    Well, i tought it would be nice to have the updates ioses updated (probably overwriting corrupt ones) all with trucha bug, cdip module, etc (as the cioses from cioscorp). Also if i'm able to fix this console il'l just leave it softmodded the chips is on it, just to try to recover the brick.

    While CiosCORP isnt liked much, it CAN be helpful in some cases to fix a brick if a lot of IOS are missing/corrupt.


    @OP: have you checked for obvious things like preloader and bootmii?

    Yeah, i see. It didn't have any type of cios before and was bricked, i don't know how it got bricked, cuz i got it that way. Couldn't make a proper intallation of cios36 because of no homebrew channel, installed only the wad of cios 249, but seems like it won't work properly.

    Yeah, its checked. But i'm sure bootmii can be installed as boot2 (if i had how to install it on the bricked console) as its a very old console with old serial.

    Do not update to 3.4, you will kill all hope.
