    Bricked Wii No Preloader no IOS

    So I've had my wii hacked for a long time. I let my mom mess with it once and she semi-bricked it. I just let the wii go. Couple months later I mess with it and it is some how back to normal and i'm able to enter the wii settings and what not. I think I might have reverting to the back-up without knowing it. Stopped playing for like a year. The 4.3 update came out. I tryed to install it knowing that it would get rid of my homebrew for good. Tried to download it but it wouldn't let me. So i just removed the homebrew and bootmii the exact way I installed it, but it still wouldn't let me download it. Kept coming up with error 32007. I had gotten Black Ops for Christmas and when I put the disc in it would come up with error #002. The wii just would not let me update. So I said forget it and tried to update it myself, but luckily me I am a rushy person and tried to rush through. Downloaded 4.3 System menu from NUSD but I forgot to pack it into one wad. Took all the single wads and tried to install them one by one with wad installer. Got done some of them didnt install, rebooted my wii and it was bricked all black screen. Is their anyway I can unbrick it my any chance. This is my moms wii, I could appreciate the help. Thank you and sorry for the length just wanted to get the full story in.

    and i had installed homebrew back before trying to manual update it and forgot to back-up.
    Thanks again.

    Well, if you have bootmii as boot2, then you can easily unbrick it. Look at the disc drive light when you power it on, 2 flashes = bootmii, 1 flash = no bootmii. If you have bootmii as boot2, then you can use a guide in the bricked section to fix things, you do not need a NAND back-up for this.
    If ou don't have bootmii as boot2, you can probably send it to one of our members with a NAND programme who will be able to install bootmii as boot2, provided your wii is bootmii/boot2 capable. You could do this yourself, but you would need a NAND programmer.

    Moved thread into the bricked section of the site. If you have a NAND backup, someone can reprogram it (for a fee). We have several well-known users on this site capable of this. If your Wii is three years old or older, these same folks can flash boot2 into your Wii even if not installed (again, this is for older Wiis). If you are neither of these cases, you are screwed.

    My Wii is bricked too. I removed some of the IOS by mistake two years back and am unable to go past black screen. I do not have NAND back up either but luckily I purchased my Wii in April 2007 and have already contacted one of the site members for repairs.

    As shared by the member who would be recovering my console, my Wii is bootmii as boot2 capable, this is like a "bootloader" and I should always be able to get into it even if I brick the wii. The only time it could vanish is if theres a boot2 update (which there currently isnt). He would flash bootmii directly into the NAND, using a hardware programmer. Then from bootmii he will reinstall the missing IOS.

    As mentioned by nightstah, I guess I am one of those lucky people whose console is three years old or older.

    The first five letter / numbers of my console's serial number are: LJF11548

    Looking forward to getting my Wii repaired and start playing games soon.
