    Black screws = go in black plastic
    small screws = go on low parts
    larger screws = heatsink and 2 where the gamecube ports are.

    simples

    Yep, Bad_Ad84 is right. It is simple to disassemble and reassemble a Wii although I know it can be intimidating at first. The first time I took one apart, I done it in stages and separated everything into bowls as I went. That helped me put the thing back together the same way it came apart. But now, I can almost do it with my eyes closed and I bet Bad_Ad84 could do it with his eyes closed.

    You can use this and this as a reference to get you started.

    I nearly said I can do it with my eyes closed

    On the metal plate, its even marked which screws should be in place before you start putting plastic parts back on.

    That said. I might take some pictures of the next one I put back together, then mark which screws should be in at each stage... depends if I get time or not - quite busy again at the moment after a 2-3 week quiet patch.

    edit:

    the one you want to watch out for the first time you do it - put the square nut back so your battery can be screwed in before you put the DVD drive and rest of the wii back together.

    Yeah, that nut always comes out of place. The first thing I do when reassembling the case is screw in that tri-wing near the battery and then screw the battery back in. If you don't, that nut usually ends up somewhere else by the time you get to it.

    I take the nut out. You can slide it back into place after fitting that piece of plastic.

    My point was just to remember to do it, its annoying putting the whole thing back together, then putting the battery back on (which is pretty much the last thing as a case screw is under it) to find out you need to take it apart again

    You may have a full brick in which case your only options are to restore from boot2 Bootmii or have the NAND flashed.

    Sounds like it. Bootmii didn't load as boot2, it loaded as an IOS. Who does/how can I get the NAND reflashed, and what sort of costs are we looking at? I *do* have a NAND backup which was created at the beginning of the modding process (it one of the steps, from dogeggs I believe?) Thanks.

    Edit: I assume I'm also going to lose the savegames if I have to get the NAND reflashed, right? That would suck.

    Whoever does your reflash, get them to dump the original nand.

    then you can extract your saves.

    Or you could betwiin your nand onto a boot2 board, reinstall what ever is broken and just move the saves to sd card.

    I can't solder, so I'd have to have someone do this. Is there anyone on this board that does it? I'm in the states, BTW. Thanks.
