    Bricked Wii.. Need help recovering.

    Ok i believe I may have really screwed up my Wii. I was running a Wii that i had softmodded and had it freeze while updating the system menu from 3.4u to 4.1u. I will try and provide all the information I can.

    Wii System Menu was 3.4u, and was running all my backups fine through my usb HD w/ USB Loader GX.

    The Wii also has a older model WiiKey soldered in that I used before my laser started acting up. Laser works only when it feels like it..

    I loaded IOS60Patched.wad then SystemMenu 4.1u, It froze on "installing content #09"

    I rebooted, (which i have subsequently found was a very bad idea). The Wii now stops at the Priloader Screen v0.4 R78 with "Error autobooting System Munu" and "Could not open boot file".

    I cannot access "System Menu" or the "Homebrew Channel", I can, however, enter "Bootmii IOS". I did make a NAND backup beforehand. When i enter Bootmii and choose to recover via NAND It says it will run in simulation mode and i get the message.. "Restoremii, NAND ID ecdc1095 - Checking Boot2... - BootMii not found! Too dangerous to continue!"

    I have been reluctant to follow through on that. I spent some time searching out various methods at going about a recovery process, but I am petrified i may damage it more. If someone could provide some advice or guidance it would be GREATLY appreciated. I will gladly provide any other information I can.

    Thanks in advance..

    Thank you for the quick reply.

    I have followed the guide you sent me as best as i could. I loaded boot.dol and started dop-mii. I installed IOS60 and IOS70 as described. They install fine, but my screen freezes upon trying to exit back to main menu though. I have to reset. Aside from that everything went well until i got to: "Select System Menu, press A - Select System Menu 4.1 (u, e, j, k) for your region"

    Anytime i select "System Menu" from the main menu it just blinks and does nothing, as does the Homebrew Channel.

    I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Thank you.

    Follow my softmod guide below, use the method for wiis with the HBC installed. It will bring you to 4.1 and fix your issue. Use this forwarder from priiloader to launch HBC if needed, or just launch the hackmii from priiloader- HBC-Forwarder.zip

    Follow all the steps of the guide, it will set you straight.
