    I bricked my wii by? - Bricking poll

    To get some more insight in how people bricked their wii, I decided to make this poll. If you bricked your wii, please 'vote' on how you did so. It doesn't matter whether you managed to unbrick it again or not for voting. If you bricked you wii in another way than those mentioned in the poll, then please leave a short reply explaining how.

    Lol, this should be interesting. I am betting most will have out of region update or a failed to install patched system ios.

    Yeah, you are probably right about that. I hope this poll gets us some useful information.

    I wonder if this is better-served being moved to the Bricked section of the site. I won't do it unless the OP would agree, but I suspect you'll garner more results there than here in the general-wii-talk section.

    Well, I was thinking about posting it in the bricked section, but I wasn't sure whether that was allowed, as it isn't a tutorial or a thread about a wii that got bricked. So yes, I would like it to be moved to the bricked section

    Not a tutorial, yet may have value or be informative (worst case, it shows un-bricked users what NOT to do). Move approved/done.

    I've only bricked once (on my 1st wii, im now on my 7th)(before I came upon this site)

    the odd thing was, what I did shouldn't have bricked it tho
    this was back when cios rev 14 was still out
    cios rev15 came out and I updated, when I turned my console back on, black screen
    I ended up sending it to N, got it back, then sold it

    that's what I remember doing,
    what I can come up with is that I got it from an unreliable source and it was altered or something

    it was weird
    See the Thanks button over there?

    I have banner bricked by uninstalling a custom channel through the System Menu, instead of a Wad manager.
