    Bricked WII

    After succesfully modding with the Mauifrog's guide( bootmii and priiloader was installed and working and Nand back-up was made) and playing for two weeks my neighbors wii its giving a blackscreen(after his kid boot a spiderman game from usb loader). I tried to hold reset/power and nothing happens nand back up its not doing anything I tried to move the nand backup files to another sd card to rule out the card and same thing. the only thing that I noticed is that the Wii can be turn on by the wiimote but not turn off. and the DVD drive engages a disc and runs. please advice what should I do. I wondering why priiloader and bootmii failed to protect it. I remember I used the bannerbombv2 in this console. the only difference with mine is that I used bannerbombv1 in mine I mention this because mine recovered from a crash with the nand backup and it worked like a charm. these are the only wiis that i have done the softmod and I set them to be the same, same hacks in priiloader. that is why I feel so confused I dont understand why they have a different reaction to the nand back up. I am sorry if I made this post all confusing my english writing might not be clear now that I am worried about my neighbors wii.

    Sounds like your Wii has boot2 Bootmii but your neighbor's has Bootmii as IOS. If you can't access Priiloader then the Wii has a full brick or a hardware issue.

    The only way to recover from a full brick when Bootmii is installed as IOS is to have a NAND programmer flash your Wii. Since you do have a NAND backup, the Wii can be repaired.

    Thank you streamlinehd. That is exactly what I was suspecting. where do I find a nand programmer? any idea of how much is the charge ? just a guesstimate. and How can I prevent this to happen again? it means that my Wii is more protected than my neighbor's! and this nightmare will never happen to me!

    Honestly I dont know I wasnt there when it happened I only installed USB LOADER GX and CFG USB Loader both were in working condition. the 5 year old kid says he opened spiderman and it blacked out. but I think that He might have done something else. lol my neighbor is a little silent with the issue, his wife hates me I can tell by the way she looks at me and my wife aint happy with me messing around with someone elses toy. I guess you guys can laugh a little at my situation right now. it kind of makes me laugh a little too.

    It just seems that we are seeing way to many unexplained nand corruptions from usbloading with no clue as to a cause. I wonder if it is from people using beta versions of usbloader gx. Just a thought, it would be nice to know why it bricked.

    both Wiis mine and my neighbors had the latest version of USB GX rev 938 I think Mine bricked last week but I could bring it back without problems and in my case I am sure it was the GX but right now its working fine even with games that are supposedly problematic.
