    I'm guessing they have their ways of getting into it or at least looking at what has been installed. worse case scenario is they charge you an arm and a leg to fix it.

    They will likely know because the nand can still be extracted and evaluated. If you have a backup bootmii dump or even your keys, someone here can get it working for you. If you don't have any of that then I don't really know what to tell you. I guess send it to N and see what they say, maybe you'll get lucky.

    Would a backup of my own Wii work? Also, would a programmer see if they can extract the nand and see if it works? I'm sure there's at least ONE way to fix this thing without sending it in to N. xP

    We can use a different nand to restore but we would need the keys from the bricked Wii as well.

    Yes, as I said, the nand can be extracted and possibly evaluated. Your nand doesn't work if you did what you said in post #5. Without the keys or a good nand dump there's nothing that can be done.

    Not sure how much the big N can do. Maybe they have test equipment... But I doubt they do much investigation on a board that won't boot.

    Wonder if they even have a way to get the keys and therefore access to the NAND.

    So, if N could still extract the nand (even if it's corrupt) and the keys, wouldn't the programmer also be able to do so also? I have a backup of my nand, and it's been being hacked since being on 3.2, so it's boot2-enabled and it has a CRAPLOAD of brick protection.

    The keys are stored in the Hollywood chip, not in the NAND.

    There is no known way to get the keys from the chip without running code on the system (i.e. having a bootable system).

    These keys need to match what the NAND is encrypted with, so without the keys from the BROKEN Wii, you cant fix it.

    Please stop mentioning your other Wii as thats completely irrelevant.

    Ok, so I'm completely screwed in fixing this myself or having a programmer fix it, then? xP

    Yes, unfortunately you will have to send it to N or call it a loss and use it for spare parts. Next time make a backup before attempting to mod anything. It's a hard lesson learned not to downgrade your system menu unless you know how to properly do so. Sorry man, good luck with N.

    You might think about parting it out and selling on eBay. You can sell the disk drive, bluetooth module and WiFi module pretty easy and recover some of the lost money. Do a search on eBay and see what they are going for.
