    I was just bumping his original post so I could merge them together.

    OP please read post #8 again. Try to also use wii bootme to set your game iso to autoboot. If unpatched retail games won't boot, it could possible be the bluetooth module.

    Will do Maui, I'll try today after work. Sorry about not using my original thread, I was not thinking clearly when I posted. I blame it on the alchohol and my seahawks getting their butts kicked. Won't happen again.

    EDIT - I thought I read once that you will not be able to access the recovery menu w/o a working bluetooth module. Am I correct in stating this, cause I do have a working RM, so just wondering if it rules out the BT as I don't currently have a spare? Thanks

    Ok, I finally found time to try to fix this wii again. As per Mauifrog's request, I tested a working BT module, (and also tested the BT module that was in it in a working wii and it was good). None-the-less I can't get anything to boot.

    Tried-
    -tested wi-fi module = good
    -tested BT module = good
    -Recovery menu = good (4.2u)
    -Autoboot with drivekey (set to autoboot) via Recovery menu
    ---multiple original disks = nothing
    ---autoboot wad manager disk = nothing
    ---autoboot mario kart (with sysmenu 4.2u embedded in channel) = nothing
    ---autoboot any region changer = nothing

    I still need to try other methods from maui's post like the SSDM fix, but I don't see how I can fill up memory with this wii in its current condition.
    A refresher from my previos post.
    - I bought this wii bricked with no knowledge of it
    - No Bootmii
    - No priiloader
    - Sys menu 4.2u via RM
    -has working disk drive, BT mod, and wi-fi mod.

    I think this motherboard is heading to the trash soon. Anyone have any more ideas???

    EDIT - Also thought I'd point out that none of the autoboot disks (wadmanager, any region changer) would not boot in my working wii, though originals do.
    This could mean a bad burn, or bad iso, but these would be the first disks I have burnt that didn't burn properly if thats indeed the case.

    I think loading a save game hack is a viable option, along with the wii fit fix, but I won't get far unless I can get at least an original disk to autoboot. Thanks, as I am sure you guys are getting impatient with this wii like I am.

    You can't autoboot recovery discs because the Wii doesn't have a patched SM IOS.

    You should be able to run a retail disc patched to autoboot. Did you try patching a retail disc with Bootme? If you don't know how to run Bootme you can patch manually with a hex editor. Just change the first byte of the ISO from R to 0.

    What's the Wii's serial number? Maybe it's boot2 compatible.

    Yeah i know about having ios 36 or sysmenu trucha bugged, but I was trying everything.
    Yes the wii is boot2 compatible, and I have looked into getting an infectus.
    As for your other question, I have only been trying original disks, not backups because originals autoboot in my working wii. I will make a copy asap and patch it to autoboot. Which would be the best choice to start with. WiiFit? I think I'll get started on that now. Any other ideas let me know. Thanks

    Yes, I would try the Wii fit method. If it's boot2 compatible don't toss the board. Worst case, It's fixable via NAND programming.

    I guess I didn't mean "throw it in the trash." Just said it out of frustration. We'll see if wii fit method works before I buy an infectus. Im waiting for my new 1:1 rip to get done so I can patch it to autoboot and burn it.

    EDIT - wii fit set to autoboot is in my wii now after entering RM, still spinning, not booting, what gives?

    Hey stmcmurray76,

    Your inbox is full so I can't reply to your PM. You have to delete some messages before you can accept PM's again.

    Hey stream, I was wondering if you have working motherboard, preferably boot2 capable but not necessary, that you would be willing to part with.
    Unfortunately, I do not have any working motherboards lying around (that aren't already in completed Wiis). I do have a couple dead ones but those obviously won't help you.

    Regarding your current status with the Wii, I don't know why you can't autoboot a retail game but I think you've done all you can with it. You most likely have to flash the Bootmii ARM code into boot2 at this point to fix the Wii. I know there's guides out there on how to flash with Infectus but you may want to hold off for at least a week before purchasing one. There are many hard to get tools and materials you need to properly flash a nand and it's certainly not a job for everyone. If you aren't in the top 2% of people with great soldering skills, you will end up spending more than the cost of a new console to acquire everything you need. That being said, a new realistic guide on this may just appear soon.
