    Bricked Wii Updating to 4.1

    I was updating my wii from 3.1u to 4.1 so I could install pri-loader. I used theDogeggs 3.1 to 4.1 guide and was doing it step by step and got to step 5. Everything seemed to update ok. And when tried to install pri-loader I got an error message. Also I think this is where the problem ocurred. The homebrew channel flipped upside down which is sometimes normal. Then the homebrew channel update popped up so I figured that would be a fast way to reinstall it. Now I just get a black screen when I turn it on. I installed the wii as a boot 2. I made it through the guide until the homebrew channel was upside down. I can turn it on with the wii-remote but it wont sync

    Tried step one and it is not loading anything from sd card. I have a gamecube controller an nothing is showing on the screen. I have a green power light and the screen is black with blue lines in it. I dont have a chip but i do have a flatmii but not installed. Nothing is working. The 4.1 update loaded fine with no errors from installer. Tried to install priloader and it gave me an error. installed homebrew update and rebooted black screen.

    OK, so
    Updated to 4.1 = wii still working
    installed priiloader with error = wii still working
    updated hackmii = bricked wii?
    When you updated the HBC, did you also update bootmii?
    If this is the case, it seems that the bootmii install possibly failed. If boot2 bootmii will not load, if priiloader will not load, if savemiifrii does not load, your bricked pretty good. Verify that you only have 1 flash from the blue LED drive light at boot with disc and sd card removed. One flash indicates that you do not have boot2 bootmii installed, two flashes means you do.

    If nothing is working you'll have to send your wii out to have the nand reprogrammed, bad-ad84, streamlinehd and deadlyfoez can do this.

    One flashing blue light. When I got to the install I just installed homebrew then exited to main menu. I did not reinstall as boot2 or dvx.
