    I need my wii flashed--who can do this for me

    I have a bricked wii that I cannot unbrick. I have tried NAND restore, and about 3-4 other options listed on these boards with no luck. If I need to have the wii flashed, who can do it and what can I expect to pay?
    Thanks,

    I can flash it for you if it needs to be flashed. I'm located in Connecticut so I would be the closest programmer to you. Can you provide more detailed information please? How do you think you bricked? You say you tried to do a NAND restore so do you have access to Bootmii?

    If you have access to Bootmii, you don't need to have your NAND flashed by a programmer.

    Hi Streamlinehd, This is a wii that my friend modded (his first). This is a paste from a previous post where I asked for recommendations: (http://www.wiihacks.com/bricked-wii-...reen-4-3u.html)
    "My friend modded his wii (4.3u) using the 4.3 soft mod guide. It ran fine for about 2 weeks and now all he gets is a black screen. He says his kids were in the middle of watching a netflix streaming movie when it went black. I know he also had wiiflow installed. I have his bootmii, nand and keys.bin file. His bootmii says v1.3, stub v1.3, mini v0.4, sysmenu: 4.3U boot1b boot2v4. I first tried to restore his nand and got a message "dump from another wii". I opened the keys.bin file in a hex editor and put the space between console and ID. I then inserted this new keys.bin on the end of the nand.bin and saved (per the forums here). Bootmii now recognized the nand and ran a restore. The green blocks were very choppy and sporatic. after it ran the restore, still no luck with the wii booting up"

    I got his original remotes and they did turn the wii on/off so it is not the bluethooth.

    I tried the tutorial "Fully Brick, Bootmii/boot2 installed but No Nand Backup? Solution Here!" (http://www.wiihacks.com/bricked-wii-...tion-here.html) with no luck.

    I got a gamecube controller and tried the savemifrii to see if it would come up but it didn't. (I didn't have the proper screwdriver to take the controller apart but tried several times pressing down on all directions very hard as other post's said you could do. So savemifrii may have worked but i might not have been doing it right.

    I also tried the NAND formatter tutorial (http://www.wiihacks.com/bricked-wii-...-your-wii.html) as a last resort. It seemed to run fine but the end result was still a black screen.

    I've modded a lot of wii's for friends but still consider myself a noob when it comes to a full understanding of what does what. I assumed that flashing was my only option at this point. My friend is trying to decide if it's worth it to pay to have someone flash to fix or just grab one off ebay.

    Thanks in advance for your help.
    Dave

    If you still have a black screen after the nand formatter, you have a hardware issue - bluetooth or wifi module most likely.

    Yeah I concur... as with my post in your previous thread.

If recovery mode doesn't come up, you likely have a bad wifi module (since the backup didn't fix the issue I don't think it's software related.).
    Since you can power on with your Wiimote, I'm guessing the problem is with your wifi module. It's possible that the module came loose and needs to be reseated or it may just need to be replaced. The NAND formatter not working rules out any chances of it being software related.
