Fully Bricked Wii 4.2U firmware Bootmii installed
So this is how I bricked my Wii... I was trying to install the ios to make the rock band instruments work with a burned copy of Rock Band. Most of the guides tell you to install ios 37 as IOS 232. I couldn't find the 232 in the options menu, so I installed ios 222 instead. Nothing happened. I tried a few more things (don't remember what, but I installed some other wads listed in the forums), but it wasn't working. Then I just said forget it and went to play one of my other back-ups on my usb loader. The USB loader didn't load and instead I got a black screen with a bunch of white code and numbers. I think it said something about "memory dump."
I thought maybe I had installed something incorrectly when fiddling around with RB, so I figured I should just reformat my hacked wii with the nand that I had created when I first hacked it.
When I went to use the BootMii Recovery, I was getting a lot of unprocessed blocks when it was analyzing (almost all of the blocks were unprocessed), but I didn't think anything of it. I went ahead and hit overwrite, and now I can only access the BootMii menu and nothing else. System Menu and HB Channel just give me a blank screen.
Any suggestions as to how to fix this? (btw I know I was stupid and acted without looking at forums, I shouldn't have done it).
I was able to get the cboot2 to load, but it gets stuck at the "Loading DOL" message and doesn't do anything. I can't get the WAD manager to load.
Also, I also have a priiloader installed, but I can't get it to come up when I press reset.
Can I fix my wii? Thanks for any help you all can provide!
Since your back up sounds like it's useless give this a look: http://www.wiihacks.com/bricked-wii-...tion-here.html
I've been looking at the thread for the past couple of days, but it's not working for me. Like I said in my initial post: "I was able to get the cboot2 to load, but it gets stuck at the "Loading DOL" message and doesn't do anything. I can't get the WAD manager to load."
Do you have any suggestions as to why it's not working? I reformatted my SD card to Fat32 and I've tried all the versions of the Wad Manager. I used the system software for the 4.2U version and also put the IOS70patched in the wad folder.
backup your nand, then use the nand formatter.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! This worked! I now have my Wii Back (minus game saves)!!
Another satisfied customer.

What can I do in order the prevent a brick from happening to my Wii? I've been reading and searching and I kinda feel dumb cuz some of this stuff is so confusing.

I fixed my wii and retried the rock band instruments fix using a new guide. I didn't brick it because of attempting get the rock band instruments to work, I bricked it by prematurely reformatting it and trying to use a bad nand to reformat with. Here is the new guide that I found: REMOVED
