    Bricked 4.2 Wii after using Anytitle Deleter

    Hey all, like the title says, I bricked my Wii after updating to 4.2, then using Anytitle Deleter to get rid of some old stuff.

    It was my first time using Anytitle Deleter. I heard all the warnings about possible bricks, so I was extra careful to only delete games, I didn't touch any essential stuff (or so I thought), but after restarting, I get no video (not just a black screen, my TV says "no signal")

    So all I need to know is if there is some way to recover my Wii.

    I had Priiloader installed, but as I learned after the bricking, I needed to install it again after updating to 4.2. I DO have a modchip (wiikey), not sure if that helps. I was reading about a SaveMii dongle, but I don't want to shell out what little money I have if it's not going to work, so I was wondering if anyone else had this kind of problem and was able to recover.

    ---------------------
    Now to answer some questions you may have...

    No I did not search, so I'm sorry if there is an easy answer. I generally follow forum rules, but recently I have lost my internet connection, and the only way I can get online is to use my phone which gets expensive, or stand in one spot in my kitchen to steal wireless, but that gets uncomfortable, so I apologize in advance.

    Why did I use Anytitle Deleter? Probably for the same reason I upgraded to 4.2 even after most people don't recommend it... a mild form of OCD which makes me NEED to have the latest version of anything, or get rid of all traces of things I install (like tickets) even though I'd never actually see those left over tickets unless I really went looking for them.
    ---------------------

    Please help, this also isn't my Wii that I bricked, it's my dad's. I have it at my house more than he has it at his, but he's gonna want it back soon, lol. I can barely afford a savemii, so I definitely can't afford a replacement Wii.

    First of all, can you remember what you deleted? You can use the savemiifrii method, which only requires a gamecube controller:

    1) Plug your gamecube controller into port 4, & while turning on your wii, press down on all directions on the directional pad. The numbers "4.2" should appear at the bottom right corner of the screen.
    2) Insert a game disc & it should boot, depending if you have a modchip configured to autoboot or cIOSCORP installed.

    Try it, if you can't boot games, you'd need to configure your modchip to autoboot. Are any of your IOS trucha-patched?

    Thanks for the reply, I don't remember exactly what I deleted, mostly forwarder channels for backups run from my hdd. I think I remember it didnt find one ticket and I may have forced a delete anyway (not sure how it was worded).

    I do not have a gc controller, no cioscorp, and I'm not sure but I don't think my Modchip is set to autoboot. I do have cios 249 rev19, does that count as a trucha patched ios?

    So did you brick directly after the update, or did you delete stuff then brick? If you installed bootmii as an IOS or boot2 before the brick, which I'm guessing you did not, it would be easier. My suggestion is to obtain the Wii Rescue Disc from this page: Brick Fixing Disc's - GBAtemp.net

    Since you have IOS 249 rev19, you meet all the requirement for using the disc.

    Set up your sd card like this:

    1) Download these three things
    -IOS70 WAD: IOS70-64-v6687 [Patched][FreeTheBug].wad
    - System Menu 4.2 PAL or NTSC. PAL: System Menu-NUS-v482.wad NTSC: 4.2U-RVL-WiiSystemmenu-v481.wad.zip - 4.2U, System, Menu, v481
    - WAD Manager: WAD-Manager_v1.4.zip

    2) You will create three folders in your sd card: APPS, WAD & ROOT
    3) Put the WAD Manager.dol in the APPS folder
    4) Put the system menu & IOS70 WAD in the WAD folder.

    I've never used this disc before, but if you can get to WAD Manager, install IOS70 first, then the system menu.

    This disc will require the savemiifrii method, borrow a gc controller from someone & boot the rescue menu. You won't need an autobooting modchip because the wii rescue disc is based off an official nintendo disc which should be recognized by the wii.

    Thanks RedArrow, I have a friend with a few extra (barely working) GC controllers, but he's pretty sure the dpad works on them, so I'll give it a try. And to answer your question, It bricked after the update. The update itself went fine. I did have BootMii installed before the brick, but uninstalled it cause the girlfriend didn't like having to press reset or whatever the button is, just to boot to the wii menu every time the system was turned on, so that's why I switched to priiloader

    If you just delete the bootmii folder (make a back-up to your pc!) from the SD card, bootmii will automatically boot the normal system menu.

    Arrrghhhhhhh, I even remember searching and still couldn't figure out how to do that, so thanks.

    Doesn't matter much now though, I wasn't able to see anything with savemiifrii, just the same no video problem. To make sure I was doing it right, I tested on a friends wii and sure enough, I got the version number in the bottom right.

    I guess I'm out of options now. Thanks guys for your help.

    sounds like youwere able to install bootmii as boot2 (even tho you uninstalled it).

    with a nand programmer or sending off the wii to someone with one, you could still fix this wii.

    read this thread:

    If you installed bootmii as boot2 what are the chances that you did a NAND backup? If you can find a file called NAND.bin on your SD card you may be in luck.

    nand.bin isnt required if he installed boomii as boot2. he can just use the nand formatter.

    also, he said he uninstalled bootmii due to it always booting into the bootmii menu. he needs to flash bootmii into the nand manually.
