    4.3U with Yaosm - Bricked. Please Help

    Hi all... hopefully you can help me out.

    I have an original Wii from release day, and modded it with Yaosm when the mod became available. I have the latest version of Yaosm loaded, and the Wii has given me no problems at all until a few months ago. The issues started with random black screens on power-up, which generally went away after unplugging the unit for several minutes, and reconnecting the power. Now, I get the Health and Safety screen, but the "Press A to Continue" prompt does not appear. I've tried a new power supply, and have replaced the bluetooth module but the problem persists. I've modded a Gamecube controller to make a savemiifrii, but I haven't been able to go any further than the "4.3(USA)" prompt. I suspect that my modchip is not autobooting burned disks properly. Am I basically stuck waiting for an official Nintendo disk with a newer firmware to fix my Wii, or do I have any other alternatives?

    I have never had any other homebrew, etc. mods loaded... just the modchip.

    Thanks...

    Yaosm is an open source Wii modchip... it was available very early, and I had all the parts required so I didn't need to buy anything. It's done the job and has worked great. The only reason I've mentioned it is because I don't think their autobooting functionality of burned disks is very reliable.

    You could have the Wii repaired by someone with a nand programmer (or yourself as you seem at least above average capability if you made your own yaosm).

    If you have not softmodded the Wii, then you will probably struggle to fix this as it sounds like something is corrupt.

    D-word Nintendo and their updates... I'm convinced the 4.3 update started messing up my system. Anyway, hopefully they'll release a newer firmware that I can try. I'd like to keep the NAND programming option as a last resort.

    I've tried that before, and there is no change.

    BUT... I just tried loading WiiSports in the "4.3(USA)" screen. It spun up, and the 4.3(USA) disappeared. I left it alone for about 5 minutes, then ejected the disk and rebooted the Wii. The "Press A" prompt returned, and now I'm sitting at the Wii Main Menu! I know I've tried this before, and I didn't get this far. I've left the unit on in the meantime to see what you guys recommend to do now and prevent the brick from coming back.

    ... standing by...

    Id recommend soft modding it with the guide in my signature to remove some of the stubs from the update you took.

    Thanks for the recommendation. I've picked up a copy of Lego Indiana Jones, and some 2GB SD cards. So far so good! I've loaded HBC, made my NAND backup, and just finished loading the WADs. I suspect that the rest of the procedure will complete successfully too!

    During the NAND backup, it reported that there were 3-4 "factory bad blocks". I guess this is what was causing my corruption.
