    Restoring a wii without boot2 installed

    Ok, My friend modded his wii using mauifrog's guide for 4.3 softmods. I did as well however I was able to install boot2 while my friend was not. Today his wii decided to stop loading the wii menu, I'm not sure if this is classified as a semi-brick or a full-brick, he asked me how to fix it, and I told him to restore his NAND however he cannot due to not having boot2 installed. Now I;m in dire need of some help, as my knowledge ends at boot2. How do you fix a bricked wii without boot2?

    ps he downgraded to 4.1 im not sure if that makes a diffirence

    Does he have a nand backup? Does he get an error message? Can he get to the health screen?

    Use the "EDIT" button, please refrain from double posting. Your post still fundamentally lacks any meaningful information. What SM/Region? What does the Wii allow you to do --- access to Priiloader? HBC? What? You've given nil info and expect the moon...
