    Post wii fully bricked, black screen, no boot2, have nand dump - savemii any good?

    hi all,

    i've updated a few wiis with softmods but this ones buggered on me this time.

    i was cleaning the wii making it virgin so the system menu went from 4.2 to 3.2 and was updating to 4.1 or 4.0 i forgot and after a restart i got the black screen treatment.

    i wouldn't allow bootmi as boot and so was installed as ios, i did make a nand backup before it went bust.

    after doing some reading it looks like a need a nand programmer to flash nand.bin (but its hard to find the infectus chips and soldering it is a git).

    option #2 look like this savemii dongle looks like a good option, just wondering if anyone else has had any good luck with it. As far as i can tell i need plug it in and it will give my system version and from there i can download an autoboot update disc with an higher system version (and so i'll need a modchip to run the custom update disc - drivekey looks an easy option).

    p.s. i know u need a gc controller for savemefrii but do you also need 1 for savemii method?

    I have never done it but they say you can use the SaveMiiFree method as an alliterative to the SaveMii.

    The only way to fix it is to flash your nand backup with a nand programmer, though job. You install your system menu to a stubbed ios60, common way to fully brick your wii. Sorry for your luck.
