    Bricked 4.2U Wii Bootmii/boot2 Loads (No Backup)

    I think the brick is caused by carelessly removing USB Loader GX Channel. T_T Afterwhich, the Wii can turn on (green lights on the power button) but only shows the Black Screen of Death. Without the Notice that usually appears when you turned the Wii ON.
    Also Pressing Power Button on the Wiimote doesn't ON the Wii.
    Inserting Bootmii on the SD Slot can however load up the Bootmii menu.
    I used Bootmii to provide the following information:

    BootMii v1.1
    Stub v1.1
    Mini v1.1
    SysMenu: 4.2U boot1b boot2v4
    NAND FS Usage: 80.6%

    I already have refered to this thread http://www.wiihacks.com/bricked-wii-...tion-here.html my problem here is that the thread doesn't have the System Menu for 4.2U and I'm clueless where as to get the files. Since I don't have the backup (Silly me seems like my backup was created using an older version of Bootmii where keys.bin is missing). I have tried using the nand.bin alone leading to Bootmii coming up with "Dump is for different Wii."

    Also if I may add I could access HBC via Bootmii but my Wiimote wouldn't sync. Blue light simply flashes on the remote and disappears after a matter of 3-5seconds.

    Sorry for my English, as it never is my native language. >_<

    Hope you guys could help me out and thanks in advance.

    Edit: I forgot to include that I don't have any other remotes other than Wii Remote + Nunchuk T_T

    Why dont you install 4.1U using the nand formatter then update to 4.2 (if you really want 4.2?)

    Look on the last 2-3 pages of the thread you linked to.

    *edit*
    Actually, it sounds like it might just be your bluetooth module thats failed? I dont suppose you have another wii you could take apart to test the module in your wii?

    Thanks for the fast response.
    I also thought that, it's just my bluetooth module.
    I have doubts though, since the Wii's doing fine (before I removed USB Loader GX Channel directly using Wii Channel Browser (Move, Copy, Delete) I deleted the channel) so I'm assuming its bricked due to that.

    I agree it would certain be very coincidental, but stranger things have happened. the signs do sound like a faulty module.

    I suppose the best way to find out without taking the wii apart, would be:

    Take a backup of how the Wii currently is
    Use the nand formatter in the posts/thread I said above

    If the Wii still fails to boot, you have ruled out bricked IOS/files/etc and know its most likely the bluetooth module. Then you can restore your backup you created above and be no worse off.
