    Exclamation After clicking on BootMii on the HBC I get a black screen, the dvd slot blinks blinks

    Hi Gurus!

    Please, please, help me!

    Yesterday, before drinking (new years eve), I softmodded my 4.3 according to the tutorial on this forum. Everthing was fine.
    Fine until I somewhat carelesly loaded the wii with various mods out of various sources until no more mods were possible: Blank screen after bootMii was pressed and the bleu light of the DVD slot started blinking in about 1 sec intervals. The system freezes like this and only a lengthy pressing of power turns it off. So much to the symptoms. Ah yes- I dont remember and cant figure out which mod crippled my system.

    What I treid: I reinstalled homebrewn and bootmil but to no avail- the Wii still freezes. Games work but most of thr mods are crippled.

    What do you suggest I do? Buying a new wii is not an option I considerd virginizing thr wii but i only found an instrucktion for the 4.2 version- and I have 4.3. POsiibly i could screw up my wii more than it is. Should I format - would that make sense?

    I will dedicate a shrine in honor of thr person who helps me with this one!

    I know this isn't necessarily a brick, but I'm not gonna touch it and have moved your thread to the bricked section. Moral of the story: don't drink and mod (not to mention only follow wiihacks guides; not "carelesly loaded the wii with various mods out of various sources until no more mods were possible").

    Bandi:

    Waste of breath, I'd not bother (extreme lack of judgment, holiday or not). But hey, whatever...

    @nightstah --- Lol. I just deleted my post because I felt it was a bit unneeded.

    NP; I'm not telling you you can't help this guy. But stop and think of the logic/intelligence/judgment that was involved that caused this problem to arise, lol. You wanna help, by all means...

    Can you get into the Homebrew Channel? If so run a Syscheck. Open the csv file that is created with Wordpad and NOT Notepad.

    do not "virginize" or format your wii. Do some research and you will find your solution.

    Be aware, this user felt it "necessary" to post this same post to more than one section of the site, like here. Merging threads...

    Never mind, I got into trouble with that disrespectful comment and have been told by a mod my thread is closed.
