    HELP!! Theme brick!!!

    I need help to unbrick my wii!

    Cause:Tried to install a theme

    Effect:When I turn on my wii all it shows is a blank, black screen. The wii turns on, the green light, DVD drive works. Just no display.

    Please don't tell me "Why didn't you install bootmii as boot2" I know I screwed up and only installed it as iOS (I want smack myself again for my stupidity)

    I do not have a modchip, I am pretty good when it comes to teck stuff, I am not a newb. Just made a honest mistake. After scouring the Internet for days what I came up with was:
    Buy a modchip- trying to stay away from that, but if it can fix my wii I will get one
    Savemiifrii- I was previously running 4.1u, I was hoping to use smashstack

    I did do a NAND backup before (A .Bin file) so I was wondering if I could just do a brand new system menu install, Jailbreak it, use bootmii to copy back up over to wii.

    *Sigh* I hate this feeling that I could have fixed it by installing bootmii as boot2 (Smack myself again) If a modchip can help, please tell me which one.
    I am getting a triwing screwdriver now to attempt smf (Savemiifrii) please help.

    If you're sure you bricked with a theme on SM 4.1 then do this.

    Make a savemiifrii and use it to enter recovery mode.
    While in recovery mode, insert a retail game with SM 4.2 (Super Mario Galaxy II is a good choice).
    Wait for the update to complete (you will see the version in the lower right corner change from 4.1 to 4.2).
    Problem solved.

    Stay away from themes if you don't have boot2 Bootmii installed. Bricking your Wii is a big price to pay for a fancy background.

    Thank you. I am 100% sure it was a theme brick. So savemiifrii will work with this brick. Now All I have to do is wait for my triwing screwdriver. All I do is open it and push all directions on the pad. With the gamecube controller in slot 4, correct?

    P.S will a backup of smg2 work, or metroid other m, or wii fit plus

    Get a retail disc and don't use a game with the SM 4.3 update unless you have SM 4.2 currently installed. Update to the lowest possible SM.

    Thank you streamlinehd for your comments. I just have one more question, can you give mii a list of games that have 4.2 on them. I think that's all. If this does work I will be eternally grateful

    SMG2, Endless Ocean 2, SW Force Unleashed 2 right off the bat. Consult the list Krank linked you to for a few others.

    Mario Galaxy 2 for one. I also think the Wii Sports Resort has a 4.2 update.
