    Hey All! Possible Brick, requesting advice please

    Hey everyone, I have an issue with my Wii and thought I could find some help here. A couple of days ago I softmoded my Wii using this guide [Outside Link Removed - Do Not Replace]

    Everything went as smooth as butter, no problems what so ever during the installation. I ripped a couple of my games to a portable hard drive and it worked fine. A few days later I took my Wii over to my friends house and hooked it up to his TV to show him what I did. Booted it up, nothing out of the ordinary happened. Selected a game to play and the screen went black and the game failed to load. This had happened before when I was troubleshooting different games so I didn't think anything of it. I turned off the Wii and restarted the console. BootMii menu came up as usual, clicked on the Wii option and nothing. The screen went black as if nothing was connected to the TV. I can no longer access the Wii menu or even load the BrewChannel from the BootMii menu. If I remove the SD card from the Wii and boot it up, nothing happens. Just a blank screen, no press A menu warning or nothing.

    I really need some help here, any advice or insight into my situation would really be appreciated. I don't what I did wrong, I literally did nothing out of the ordinary; that I am aware of at least.

    1. Look here at post #6.
    2. Donwload the file attached.
    3. BACKUP DO NOT DELETE THE FILES ON YOUR SD CARD!!.
    4. Place the files from the packet you downloaded on to your SD card.
    5. Place the SD card in your wii and boot it.


    A csv file will be created on your SD card. Open it with WordPad NOT Notepad and paste the results here.

    Bootmii will load, the recovery menu will load, not sure if priiloaders loads or not (I think it may not). The system menu does not load, and perhaps even HBC does not load.

    Wiimote does not power on the Wii. SysCheck will also not work, no cvs file can be found on the SD card. Do you have to be able to access the Brew Channel for it to work? Or does it boot and run the program when you turn on the console?

    Bootmii will load, the recovery menu will load, not sure if priiloaders loads or not (I think it may not). The system menu does not load, and perhaps even HBC does not load.
    Is there anyway to test if my bluetooth module is fried for sure?

    Thanks for all the help so far guys, really appreciate it.

    Another question, if I can still access the bootmii menu does that mean there is still hope for recovering my Wii if the bluetooth module is not the problem?

    Since your wii has boot2 bootmii, it is fully recoverable from any coruption of your nand as long as bootmii still loads. But it sounds very likely that your bluetooth module is bad. The last test you can do is use savemiifrii. If your bluetooth is bad savemiifrii should still work, which means your system ios and menu are intact. A bluetooth module costs about the same as a gc-controller.
