    Again, trying to get some more votes here. The number of theme bricks is higher than I anticipated.

    there are ways of unbricking wiis. If you got the right tools, almost every wii can be unbricked. if you donīt take the necesary wii protection there is a high chance on bricking your wii permanently.

    Too bad there isn't an I've never bricked option. It would be interesting to compare against the current numbers.

    Added one to the theme brickers. So far it's the only thing I've found to brick my console, and believe me I've tried.

    Psh, and you call yourself a hacker. You should be ashamed of yourself and the modding you have done. I am tempted to delete IOS70 right now just to make up for your lack of bricking. You disgust me!

    If by "right tools" you mean a nand backup, then yes.

    Without a nand backup, MOST wiis are unfixable, regardless of what tools you have.

    But if he meant a skip in your step and a pocket full of dreams, then all Wii's can be fixed!
