    Bricked Wii With D3-2 v2 Drive

    Hi Maui,

    I have a new project and I've read the other posts here that are similar but I wanted to see what your take on this is.

    I have a newer Wii that I purchased as a store return. It has a D3-2 v2 drive and system menu 4.1 USA. The problem is that I get nothing but a black screen on startup (no bootmii or priiloader installed). I can get to the system recovery menu using bootmiifrii and the (4.1 USA) comes up in the bottom right hand corner of the screen. I also have a Drivekey which I know doesn't work on on D3-2 drives so I swapped it out with another drive that I know works with the Drivekey I believe it's a D2C drive. I figured this would work and then I would be able to autoboot UUDv4 to recover everything. Well, turns out I'm wrong, the motherboard must have a built in function that shunts the vulnerability in the drive from working. I've swapped out the drive with at least 4 others and the same thing happens.

    I have Endless Ocean 2 on its way since it has system menu 4.2 on it maybe it'll update and work? I also have a Wiikey Fusion on the way but I haven't found out if I can autoboot from the SD slot yet. Any ideas? Much thanks in advance.

    It is not loading the recovery disk because the ios60-v6174 is not patched with the trucha bug. Try to autoboot any game from the recovery menu- see if the wiimotes will sync and work. If the bluetooth module is bad, the game will not boot and your wiimotes will not power on the wii (needs to be synced). So it may be a bad bluetooth, hard to say since you don't know the story behind the black screen. Try to swap the module with another wii if games won't load, you should be able to boot most games. Perhaps try wii bootme found on wiibrew to set the iso to autoboot if you have trouble.

    Also read the sticky above about recovery menu brick fixing. There are many methods in there.

    Question about Drivekey

    I have installed my drive key and I click on the gamecube logo and insert the game but then it gives me error.

    An error had occurred.
    Press the eject button, remove the
    game disc, and turn the power off.
    Please read the wii operations manual
    for more information.

    What do I do now?

    Thanks Maui. I just checked if the wiimotes would sync and they don't. Should I be able to sync them even while in recovery mode? I'll swap out the bluetooth module tonight and let you know how that goes.

    Problem solved. You were right, It was a bad bluetooth module. Thanks again Maui you are the best!
