    Bricked Wii needs help.

    Hi, this is my first post and my first wii, i do understand soft-modding, i have a psp with a custom firmware,a xbox360 with dash hack and a ps2 with memory card soft-mod, but besides that, i bought a bricked wii for my son, the brick occurred with the folowing scenario:
    The wii had cioscorp instaled (don't know witch version) and the owner decided to do an online update (don't know witch one), after the update the wii turns on but has a black screen.
    The bootmii is installed as an IOS, i have tried the savemiifrii method and the NAND formatter with no success, i am not sure if it is related with the bt module, is it possible to remove the bt module and do any test to see if it is hw related or not? I mean without replacing the module is there any way to check if that's the issue or not?
    Finally, beside hw issue, is it certain that i can resolve it using the Low Level Brick recovery? or its not worth it to spend money on the infectus?
    Thank you all for spending time reading my post and I'll appreciate your help.

    It is not the bt module, savemiifrii would load the recovery menu if the module was bad.

    If it went black after an online update, the boot2 install from 4.2 update probably failed.

    Unless the wii is old and has a vulnerable boot1 (supports boot2 bootmii) you can not fix it with the infectus UNLESS you have a bootmii nand.bin or key.bin from this bricked wii. If you have the nand or key bin you can probably fix it with the nand programmer.

    If the wii has not been opened up, I would call Nintendo and tell them you did an online update and now you have a wii with a black screen and you don't know why.

    OK, thank you for the support, so considering that i don't have any kind of backup it is preferably to buy a Wii with other kind of fault and change the motherboard instead of buying the infectus chip.
    Thank you all.

    That could work.
