    Wii semi-bricked after updating with different region game

    Hi all ye experts and people who generally know better than me,

    I recently bought a Freeloader Disc to enable my region 2 wii to run region 1 games.

    Unfortunately, after running the disc and inserting the region 1 game (Naruto, Clash of the Ninja 3), I allowed the console to update (which I realise now was a big mistake), which has caused it to 'black screen of death'.

    I've downloaded the 'Wii system menu update - PAL v290" Iso, but now have no idea how to run that on my wii (I'm assuming it'll be via USB, disc, or SD card) to reset the firmware & get it working again.

    Has anyone here had a similar problem and/or knows how to resolve this issue?

    Thank you for you time!

    Sincerely,

    Andrew

    Unfortunately not. Forgot to mention that, the Wii has not been modded in anyway since it was bought in 2007.

    Thank you for the quick response!

    I used the Datel Wii Freeloader Mini Disc (Amazon.com: Datel DUS0264-I Nintendo Wii Free Loader: Video Games), and followed the instructions contained therein.

    The process was as follows:

    1. Boot the wii up as normal
    2. On the channel menu, insert the mini disc
    3. Eject the disc
    4. Insert the USA region (NTSC) disc
    5. Clicked 'update' (which I realise now I shouldn't have)
    6. Wii restarted
    7. Stayed black and won't boot properly (I have attempted the soft and hard restarts)

    I was advised that the ISO I mentioned previously could fix this problem (by looking on forums, etc), but the instructions on how to use the ISO were not included.

    I have a PAL (EU) Wii.

    Thanks!

    You could have the nand reprogrammed as long as you have a boot2 compatible wii..... but to figure that out you need to give us your serial number....

    Oh, sorry about that, forgot to include that.

    It's LEH131383430 (the last '0' is in a box, not sure if it's part of it)
