Need help on bricked wii
Wii will not load anything, black screen.(currently reading through sticky guide)
Console was running on 3.2 cioscorp 3.6.
Priiloader 4 installed, hbc 1.0.6, bootmii as ios, nand backed up.
I was following Ithian's guide to remove cioscorp. All file patching/installing/removing went well. But got stuck during syscheck ios31. Rebooted. Now priiloader wont load..black screen.
Lately, ive read 3.2 would brick using 1040 ios30. Is there still a "soft" way of unbricking this or i need a savemii chip or drivekey?
When you installed ios30-
did you install ios30-v1040
did you install ios30-v2816
I think you have a newer wii which does not support 3.2. More specifically it does not support some older ios, such as ios30-v1040, ios36-v1042 and others. I believe that the cIOS30 from cIOSCORP allowed your to downgrade your wii to 3.2, since this cIOS30 is a patched ios60-v6174 it will run on any wii. When you removed cIOSCORP you also removed this cIOS30 and replaced it with ios30-v1040, which will not function on your wii. This is evident in your failed syscheck at ios31, which suggests that ios30 is corrupt. Also I do believe that priiloader will boot to the system ios, and if this ios goes sour it will not load.
Thanks mauifrog. I did install 1040. I downgraded because of "vulnerable ios" error for hackmii. Console was running on 4.0u before downgrade. I was successful though of installing hbc 106 and still retained system menu at 3.2. *sigh* Im already browsing through that thread after i made this thread. Still having confusion though on drivekey and savemiifrii, if that's what i think will cure my wii.
Is this a banner brick? (darn not a banner brick as indicated by the brick/unbricking faq) full brick!:026:
Any additional advice?
I think you have a full brick, probably only recoverable via a nand flash of your bootmii nand.bin with an infectus nand programmer.
Ouch. My chances of asking for help of flashing is none since i live in the Philippines. Unless some expert member lives close by. Can i also confirm that i cannot be saved by drivekeys/savemiifrii/UUD/autoboot disks ???
Thanks again mauifrog
Im Sure you will be able to find help... Mauifrog is very very good at this stuff and we will find a way.... LOL -- and there are lots of other members that will/can help

Also you did try to start priiloader by holding reset?
Thanks emuhack. Indeed, there are very helpful members, one member is already willing to lend his drivekey if i can rescue my wii through that method. ATM im reading nand flashing.
ALright, finished the sticky threads with tears. I still have to find a gc controller to know if i can use a drivekey or savemiifrii.
@mauifrog: yes, loading priiloader by holding reset button was the first thing ive done after the black screen. No success.
*bit of additional info* - during my corps removal i did patch the ios 30 50 60 & 70 with what dop-mii suggested.
@NAND programmers: Im fearful that nand flashing method might not work for me if my bootmii is on ios install-leading to presume that my boot1 is a new model. Can you clarify on this? I do have my nand.bin and keys.
Finally I cannot send my unit to nintendo since im from the Philippines. I just hope something positive can still come from this nightmare since my wii is ONLY 4 DAYS OLD!
Thanks again for your help. Thoughts??
