    Fully bricked wii, bootmii not loading

    Well everything was going good. Tried to load Punchout from gsxloader and it black screened on me. Held the power off. Turned it back on, back screen. Haven't gotten it to day anything other than that yet. Tried holding down reset while turning it on, nothing. Removed SD,usb card, nothing. Disconnected to power source for a few minutes, nothing. Tried a factory disc, nothing. When it boots up with no disc it does NOT blink more than once. This leads me to believe that my bootmii must have been installed as an iso I guess. I had no clue what I was doing really when I installed it. I just had a vague idea that bootmii was needed if I messed up. I thought I installed it as the tutorial explained but maybe I didn't. I checked my SD card and there is nothing with bootmii in the root menu.

    I have not tried the GC method as I don't have a GC controller.

    I have not tried the pink fish cd thing as I am not sure if that applies to me.

    I think I am probably completely screwed. Are there any options for me at all? Send it back? Its not under any warranty. Nintendo wants $75 +shipping for a repair. Replace some parts? (motherboard off ebay)

    EDIT: Would providing my serial number work or is that not an option for me at this point? LU39266607(5)

    No sir I don't believe I do as I don't really know what that is or where I would have it. Is that something that is too late to make? Can I make one off my friend's wii or is it specific to mine as I would guess it is?

    it has to be off your wii

    nand.bin
    keys.bin

    check your sd card for them 2 files if you dont have them then you might have to get a GC and try that method if that doesnt work just hope nintendo fixes it for you but its possable they wont because its been bricked my softmoding so they might just send it back to you

    Definitely don't have those files. The GC trick works even wih bootmii as an iso? Will give it a shot. I might just try and get a wii with a broken drive off ebay for $30 and put my drive in it rather than send it to nintendo.

    Just for giggles, try unplugging the power supply at both ends for ~5 minutes. That is pull the power from the back of the wii and pull the power cord from the adapter. I doubt this will help but since its so easy to try, give it a whack.
