    Just a update for anyone reading, called nintendo and told them that my wii turned off during a system update, they said that even though my wii was out of warranty that since it happened during one of there updates that they had to do it free of charge (idr the specifics) but since it technically was there fault per say because of a update I get a free repair. I will update the progress when I get my wii back in 2-3 weeks if I remember.

    This is good info if anyone else in in the fully bricked boat, I wouldn't count on your luck UNLESS you know its fully bricked though idk if they can find out I had z homebrews that could be a dream killer.

    Let us know what happens. I bet they're going to just send you a new console and I don't think they can tell you had Homebrew or softmods. The only thing I know they can look at are your boot blocks because they aren't encrypted. Seeing as your wii can't have boot2 Bootmii installed, your boot blocks have not been altered so you should be good.

    Hey I just got my wii back from Nintendo and I've got some good news. Let me just start from the beginning.

    First duh, I fully bricked my wii, so if you know your wii is fully bricked, take note of what I did. Tried everything and it didn't work, no nand back up no boot me installed. Now I called nintendo and told them that my wii system was updating and for some reason my wii turned off during the update and wouldn't start up after that. There policy is that even if the wii was out of date, if it was working before you attempted to update it and it stopped for any reason afterward they consider it there fault and will fix it for FREE with free shipping there and back. They even game me another year warranty for free! Now if your going to attempt to do this with your wii take note that your wii better be good and fully bricked, no bannerbombs or bootmii or anything should show up. You should also make sure that it isn't opened and your warranty seal is intact (if there is one).

    They basically Replaced my Main Circuit board and sent back the same wii, I'm going to test it tonight and hopefully get to modding it tonight as well, thanks everyone and I hope this discovery works for you.

    Also as a Side side note, why is there no Gamecube back ups yet? All someone needs to do is make a homebrew program that can mount discs so that when you return to the Wii menu its there in the disc tray. Wii has linux, is it not that obvious? HDD support right there! Whatever obviously im new to the scene..

    Thanks for the update. That proves Nintendo doesn't have some secret way to read the keys and access the NAND.

    They don't because Nintendo Doesn't directly fix it, they hire subcontractors to do the work and as I'd imagine, they have no interest that type of stuff. They just replaced my Main Circuit board because they probably didn't have any other choice. They Were called Consumer Radio or Electronic radio Repair something i don't remember..

    they technical COULD have a way, I just dont think they bother.

    Would require far too much manual work to repair.
