    Priiloader bricked my wii.. Black screen of death.

    It's my families wii and I am praying to god I can get it fixed. I got the homebrew channel and bootmii on our wii with this video. [Removed: Do not re-add. ~ Staff]
    I have the NAND backup but I don't know how to fix it. The DVD drive only flashes once and that's it. I think the priiloader I tried running was only for 4.2u and I ran it on 4.3u and it screwed the wii over. I also powered on our wii with the wiimote with success but still, a black screen. I modded my wii with Smashattack. Can you guys help me?

    Oh buddy that doesn't sound too good. So i guess you didn't follow one of the guides here and are now madly trying to find a life line here at Wiihacks.

    If I'm not mistaken your first post here at Wiihacks should have been in the introduction section (saying hey whats up I am new here , for example ), then search the forums for answers, if an answer still isn't found then Post a question. I will leave your fate to the Mod's lol

    I am sure there is a similar case and lots of information about NAD back ups some where on the site.
    Good luck

    Yeah, sorry grim but a BSOD from installing Priiloader would mean you have a full brick. Try getting into Priiloader by holding the reset button while powering on the Wii. If you can't access Priiloader you are indeed fully bricked and will have to send your Wii out to a NAND programmer to get it fixed. Here's a list of members who can do this type of work for you (for a fee of course) you can PM whoever is closest to you:

    Bad_Ad84 (England, UK)
    Streamlinehd (Connecticut, US)
    Krafter (Indiana, US)
    Erikie (Netherlands)
    Cogita ante salis

    So you mean there's no other way even if I have my NAND backup and keys?

    for YOU the nand and keys are no good... you need to reprogram them into the wii.... normally you could using bootmii boot2 or other options.... but since you are a full brick there is no way unless you sent it to a programmer

    Why did it give me a brick though? I just don't understand how something that's supposed to prevent a brick would brick my system.

    It is really hard to say what you did or did not do, since you obviously didn't follow any Wiihacks supported guides to do your modification or installation of priiloader.
    Bricking a wii console from following random youtube videos are one of the most common things here.

    did you not read
    This guide assumes you have bootmii already installed as boot2 (you can do this with bootmii/IOS but its not recommended). If your Wii is bricked and bootmii ISN'T installed you need to follow Erikie's guide, which is found here:
    you have to have bootmii as boot2 to do this.... YOU ARE FULL bricked.... you can not do anything unless you can get to priiloader on boot or GET A programmer

    So that's out of the picture.. and there's no possible way to get priiloader on my wii right? So I'd have to send it out .-.
