    When you power on the wii, does the drive light blink once or twice?

    ok next, whats the serial number of the Wii and have YOU tried savemii/savemiifrii?

    As it could be the bluetooth module - testing savemii will help to answer this

    Just make a savemiifrii out of a game cube controller. Open it up and break off the plastic piece that restricts all the d pad buttons from being pushed at the same time. Then you just have to reassemble the remote and you have a savemiifrii.

    This is bad news. If savemiifrii dosn't bring up the recovery screen then you either have a bad wi-fi and bluetooth module (since your remote doesn't power the system on) or you have a full brick. I think you have a full brick since it's unlikely to have both modules go bad at the same time. How did your sisters boyfriend brick? Was he trying to downgrade or upgrade his system menu? Did he delete his system menu IOS?

    Sorry, at this point the only thing you can do is have the nand or boot2 flashed. You will need a working nand backup from bootmii to recover the entire nand. If you don't have a working backup then the only other possibility would be to flash boot2 with bootmii and this isn't possible on newer Wiis. You should contact bad_Ad84 or eirkie, they are both capable of doing this for you.
