    Us Full brick not sure what went wrong bootmii failed too

    I installed Bootmii originally when I first was Modding my wii. I'm not sure if I did boot2 or IOS however these are some of the files on my SD card in the bootmii folder

    arm boot.BIN 49KB
    boot.elf 309 KB
    bootmii 1KB

    Along with my other apps.

    The System I believe was at 4.0 and I had a few IOS's that I installed before it crashed (222 249 ext.) also the system memory was close to being full, it maybe had like 900 blocks left.

    The problem occured when I was trying to set up my wii to play wiiware games off the SD card. I wish I found this website sooner and my idiot self downloaded IOS60 installer off some youtube tutorial thinking it might allow me to play those games. The installer started off asking me if I wanted to install IOS61, I thought I needed that since it asked and I installed that, it then Asked me to install IOS60 which I did, then strangely enough, it asked if I wanted to install the latest Wii shop channel... I did only because I thought it was required and I had installed bootmii so I thought I was safe.

    End result let to me going back to the homebrew channel and the whole channel was completely upside down, everything, I thought I pressed a button or something so I clicked to shut off the system in the menu. On restart I received the black screen of death

    So heres what happens, I can start up my wii with my wiimote, 1 blue flash and I can hear the disc drive spinning when it starts. I don't think the wii syncs.. it looks idk I need to try this again...

    Normally I'd just get another one but I have hundreds of save files on the memory so I'm willing to do pretty much anything.

    Good specific advise will get rep thanks or whatever you need me to click on. Thanks for reading.

    Do you know what version of IOS60 was installed? It sounds like you installed a stubbed version. Either way, you are likely fully bricked. You will need boot2 bootmii to recover it yourself (which you don't have). Do you have a NAND.bin and keys.bin file on your SD card?

    The homebrew channel went upside down because you installed a patched ios61.

    Please provide the serial number of your Wii, also check your SD card for nand.bin and keys.bin.

    I'm not sure what IOS60 it was but it doesn't really matter now

    I could not locate the Nand.bin or keys.bin

    LU63128270 7 is my serial. Money is no problem, if I can get this fixed free great, if it will cost me but it can be fixed thats fine, if I've got a big stinking brick well damn it, but I just need my save files at the very least.

    You are out of luck.

    There is no way to recover your Wii's motherboard or recover your data.

    Sorry to say it but he's right you're SOL. You went through the trouble to install bootmii but didn't make a backup?

    if I send it into nintendo does anyone know how much the costs will be for NA and if they can recover my save data and/or if they can find the homebrew installed >_< they obviously won't be getting the same story as you guys are getting. I may try the old updating/blackout with combinations involved along with other lies.

    well I'll survive, I don't really care that much about the save data but if there are some save game files on the website guess I will be fine.

    quick unrelated question, is the latest wii update softmod=able? Assuming Nintendo is nice and they give me a working wii, will I be able to get back on track with my hacks? This website just got bookmarked, I hope I can contribute as well.

    I don't think even Nintendo can recover the data without the console's keys. The NAND is encrypted with it's own unique symmetric crypto not common key which means Nintendo would need your exact keys to read the data. The keys can't be extracted if the system is non-functional. I guess sending it to Nintendo may be your last shot at recovery but I don't think it can be done.
