    Question Programmer NAND restore

    If I sent a n IOS60 bricked Wii to a programmer, would they need the ORIGNAL NAND to successfully repair it? I've heard that they do, but I just want to make sure.

    If the Wii is old enough to have a vulnerable Boot1 then no. They can simply flash it with Bootmii/boot2. If it is to new to have a vulnerable Boot1 then they would need the nand backup or the keys.bin (but the nand is much better and easier).

    Well, crap. I have no idea of the location of the nand, and the Wii is newer than mine (which I got in '07). This is my friend's that I was trying to hack, and the unexpected happened. xP

    What did you do to it? What is the system menu version?

    I downgraded from 4.2 to 3.2, then I tried to upgrade to 4.1 from 3.2, using Waninkoko's "Safe" Updater. I got pwned. xP

    I'm guessing you installed 4.1 on top of a stubbed IOS60 (4.1 system IOS). Unfortunately there probably no hope for it.

    You should have bricked on the 4.2 to 3.2 downgrade not on the 4.1 upgrade but I'm guessing you didn't leave the HBC to go to system menu. You then installed SM 4.1 and I'm guessing the installer froze when it completed and you tried a hard restart right? Yeah, you can't downgrade from 4.2 without installing the SM IOS first because they are all stubbed.

    I can tell you if it's boot2 capable or not. What's the serial number?

    I was never able to install BootMii as boot2; only as IOS. Is it still boot2 capable? (I'm not at home ATM, so I'll post when I get back.)

    If the Hackmii installer didn't give you the option to install it as Boot2 then no.

    So, the only solution for this thing to be fixed would be to send it in to Nintendo? If they can't access the system menu AT ALL, they won't know if it ever had been softmodded, right?
