    Question Full Brick (4.1E) - Recover Using DriveKey Wii Modchip + Boot CD or Game /w Firmware?

    I originally softmodded my Wii to play an import of NHL2k10. After getting a PS3 and NHL10 I have no need for NHL2k10.

    In an attempt to un-softmod my Wii, I had a brain explosion and bricked my Wii. Essentially I used Wad Manager 1.4 to uninstall the Wads that it listed, NeoGamma, IOS36 and IOS60. Once I exited wad manager, each time I exited home brew, it would just reload. After resetting the Wii, black screen/no video signal.

    No Preloader or NAND backup.

    I tried SaveMiiFrii (GC controller in port 4, pressing up+down+left+right) with no affect, I read that it relies on the system menu being in tact.

    I've read that I can create a bootable disc of wad manager. If I installed DriveKey Wii (or similar), would I be able to boot a wad manager cd and re install the wad's I removed?
    OR
    Insert a game disc with a later fireware verison and perform a system update?

    Would these methods unbrick? or should I just fork out the cash and get a new wii?

    You should never uninstall any is under 200, ios 60 was your system menu. Without savemiifrii and a trucha signed ios u will not be able to use application discs but it may be possible for u to use an autoboot modchip to run a game with an update on.

    Do at least have bootmii installed? I'm assuming you don't. Unfortunately you are correct, savemiifrii doesn't work if the system menu has been destroyed, & no disc (Trucha or Non-Trucha) can work without it, so your only choices are:

    1) Send it to Nintendo, who will most likely charge you.
    OR
    2) Try flashing bootmii into the NAND with a programmer modchip like infectus. http://www.wiihacks.com/bricked-wii-...t-bootmii.html

    Bad_Ad84 is experienced in hardware problems, which can be difficult. He might be able to give further advice (I'm a software guy), or perhaps Mauifrog or other members can give some other methods/advice.

    I think everything has been said, don't uninstall ios, it can brick your wii.

    It seems that the amount of IOS60 bricking is hitting the cosmic region. Make sure you read any warnings that may be included in any softmodding guides.

    Thanks for the replies guys.

    I have a mate who is into the challenge of fixing the hardware. I just might live with my stupidity and buy a new console.
