    I have a theory in need of confirmation...(Semi-Bricked Wii)

    A few months ago, I bricked my Wii by being a general putz and resetting the system menu (Yeah, yeah, I know I'm an idiot ). Now, back then I didn't think much of it. Stuff happens, I told myself. But nowadays I kinda miss the old girl, so after a bit of research I learned that my Wii was only semi-bricked (unless I've been misled, my Wii turns on, but nothing happens and a black screen just hangs), and that there are semi-brick fix discs I can obtain. My question is this, and it may seem rather trivial: How do I get the data for a Fix Disc onto a disc, and what disc should I use? (CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, etc.)

    If I am wrong on any of this information, please do not hesitate to correct me.

    Softmodded, yes. It was an older model of Wii that I bought at launch.

    I am pretty sure I installed boot2 before it bricked.

    if you switch it on, do you get 1 or 2 flashes? 2 means bootmii in boot2. With that you can easily unbrick it

    If you have bootmii installed, do you by chance have a backup of your NAND?

    Nand backup makes life a bit easier but is not necessary when you have bootmii installed in boot2. It is so easy to unbrick a wii with bootmii in boot2 with all the different tools available using cboot2 technics...

    If you mean the LED disc slot light, then I get two flashes in quick succession.

    Does the blue drive light flash two times when you turn on the wii? (this means you have bootmii as boot2). Do you have a NAND backup?

    Do you have priiloader installed? (when booting the wii hold the reset button for 5 seconds and priiloader will start, if you installed it).

    Check out the stickys in the bricked wii section.

    EDIT: sorry, I didn't see the replys above.

    So what's the good word? I apparently do have boot2 installed, what should my next step be? Any links to a topic with a guide?

    Do you know what system menu you were on before you bricked? If so see below.

    Bootmii/boot2, No NAND backup? Solution here.

    As I mentioned check out the stickys in the Bricked wii section.
