    Exclamation bricked 4.2 wii

    Hi all
    I have been so silly tried to follow a video of the net showing you how to install new themes on your wii
    well could not do a bootmii 2 (or what ever it was called) so i just carryed on and Yes it brick my wii,all i have when i restart my wii is a black blank screen. i have been trying to sort this out now for 2 days and all failed big time,now i know how silly i was doing this
    i have got the nand files and bootmii on my laptop so i put them onto my sd card and i can't get them to load just the same black blank screen, when i press the wii controler the blue lights just flash on it.
    i have ordered a game cube controler so am just waiting for that to turn up
    but the only problem is i can't find "savemiifrii" to download anywhere,
    am on 4.2,
    i have learned a very hard lesson here
    anyone help me out at all?
    Thanks for reading
    Paul

    do you have priiloader installed, check by holding reset while you power up, then if priiloader loads try loading homebrew channel, if you can you might still be saveable by reloading your sys menu with dopp-mii or wad manager. If you dont have priiloader, you FAILED. You also FAILED by following a guide from another site especially when it comes to themes when you dont have bootmii as boot2

    it is possible to softmod a 4.3wii but you need to downgrade during the softmod so you can load priiloader, AND DONT INSTALL THEMES!

    No you don't.


    @ OP -- If you have a nand.bin backup you can fix your Wii with a nand programmer. Bad_ad and Erikie do that sort of repair if you want to PM one of them.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    This is your best chance on getting your wii fixed. The Savemiifrii will not work as you are on 4.2. You would need an original game disk with a 4.3 update on it in order for it to work and to my knowledge there is no such thing yet.
