    Completely Bricked Wii please assist

    I think my wii is completely bricked beyond repair.

    I should start from the beginning though its kind of a long story. When I started putting homebrew on my wii everything was fine. I proceeded to install cioscorp so I could play backups from the disc channel. At the time I didn't know how terrible cioscorp was for my wii. I read that it messes stuff up bad like messing up IOS's and confusing the wii. I left my wii like that for a while, until I later had to viriginize it to send it to nintendo because my wii disc drive was no longer functioning. I removed all homebrew and updated to 4.3, which may have been a mistake.(Skipping nintendo nonsense).

    I reinstalled homebrew functionality with stacksmash(ios 249, etc.)From there on, whenever I loaded up a game using the homebrew Gecko OS, the gamecube controller wasn't functional. I thought maybe it's because some IOS's are messed up bad from having cios corp and updating to 4.3. Maybe 4.3 in general messed stuff up becuase I still had some hacked IOS's. Anyways I tried a lot of things to fix the problem but nothing was working.

    So when I started running out of ideas, I don't know why but I decided to downgrade to 2.0 and update to 4.3. I downgraded to 2.0, then I from there wanted to vriginize my wii before going to 4.3. I remembered I followed a guide on how to viriginize my wii and I still had the files on my SD card. I used anytitledeleter or something like that, and a bunch of wads. First I had to delete all hacked IOS's and then install all the wad's. I deleted anything 200 and above, then I went to start installing the wad's(which I could still do with hacked IOS 36). I don't remember what number I got up to but it was before 36. That's when I remembered the guide was only for 4.2 wii's, while I was on 2.0.

    I immediately stopped, but instead of going back to DOP-mii to install 4.2, I exited the wad manager turned off the wii for reasons unknown. I hate how stupid I can be. When I turned the wii back on........not good. The input mode on my tv is automatically blue. So when I turn on the wii, nothing happens, it stays blue. No video, no audio, just blue. The wii remote can turn on the wii but can't connect to the wii. I've been trying savemiifrii forever but it doesn't seem to work. I don't have bootmii/priiloader/nand backup/ whatever you can think of installed.(though bootmii is installed as an ios i dont think it matters). My tv does seem to recognize that the wii turns off because it flickers very faintly when the wii is turned off. When its turned on, nothing.

    Is there any solution to this problem, besides sending it to nintendo. Any softmod options seem to be out of reach but would be amazing. If I have to I'll buy a modchip(only non-solder). If there are any trustworthy shops, I'll send it there(absolutely trust worthy, like from experience). Otherwise I'll take this mother******* piece of **** brick and throw it against the wall and smash it with a hammer........nah I'll sell it on ebay for as much as I can. Any help is greatly appreciated. More than greatly appreciated.

    What are the first six digits of your serial number? Your only hope for it to be old enough to have a vulnerable Boot1. If it does then you could have a programmer flash Bootmii/Boot2 into it to recover. If isn't old enough then..... I quote....

    It was quite bold of you to attempt any of this without a NAND backup. Bold might not be the right word but I'll stick with it .

    As Krafter said, the only chance you have for repair is if you have a vulnerable boot1. It is also possible to repair if you have the console's keys stored somewhere. I doubt you have the keys since you don't have a backup but thought I would toss that possibility out there.

    I had that stuff installed a long time ago but when I virginized my wii I never put it back because I remember how annoying it was to have the wii not go to the system menu initially.

    So, what do I do now, since it is boot2 capable.

    All you had to do was rename the bootmii folder on your SD card.
