How do I know what kind of bricked Wii I have
Heres what I have.
I was given a wii that when it is all set up and turned on you get a Black screen only, no wrighting anywhere. After reading the forums I saw the free savemii method using the GC controller tried it and it sort of worked. I now have a black screen with 3.2(usa) in the bottom rgt corner. I now put a game in (which is WII sports because that all I have) and it plays. When I turn it off I have to use the GC controller everythime to restart.
I can trun it on and off with the wii controller so I know that the BT chip is fine.
Now that I have managed to get this far what should I do. The rom light only flashes once when it is turned on so that tells me that bootmii is not installed as boot 2. I have no idea if a preloader of any kind is installed.
My understadding is that the person who had it and is no long with us so I can't ask him was trying to load a .wad file of some kind and this happened.
So first off what type of brick do I have, low level, banner, full I have no clue.
2nd what method of unbricking do I use. Knowing that it works when I put a game disc in.
Also I have a second virgin WII that has 3.4u version on it. This unit has never been update or modded in any way. If I was to mod it and get a back up nand off its system could I use it to get the first one working.
After a lot of starting and restarting of the game wii sport I saw a faint image of the home brew channel or tile on the screen before it went to the game menu.
Thanks for you time :confused:
