    Hi there StreamlineHD.

    Yes I am very sure that it is not modded. Now it was modded in the past but all of that was removed when my client updated it to the 4.3u firmware.

    I checked out the Maintenance mode as you suggested but it did the same things, froze when a game disc was in after pressing play and the Mii channel would restart the console after pressing play on the Mii channel.

    Is there a way around 4.3u to get it back to the way it was? I do have the nand files, how would I restore it using that file?

    OK the most likely scenario here is that the owner of that Wii used an app called DOP-IOS MOD. Certain versions of this app (v 11.3, 11.4) have a bug which cause the issues you describe. They then likely upgraded to system menu 4.3 thinking it would fix the problem. Upgrading to 4.3 makes the situation worse because you no longer have working exploits like Bannerbomb and games don't work so you can't use game exploits. If they didn't upgrade to 4.3, the fix would be to simply run a Dop-Mii system check. Unfortunately you only have a few options at this point which I'll list in order from the easiest method to the most difficult.

    Bootmii Method - If the console has Bootmii installed as boot2 you can use that load Dop-Mii and then run a system check. You could also just reinstall the working backup if you like.

    System Menu v912 Downgrade Disc - If the owner had mauifrog's softmod with a patched IOS80 this method is possible. You can do a Google search for instructions on how to use the disc to recover from this bug along with the requirements.

    Flash NAND With Programmer - This is the most difficult way but the Wii is 100% repairable via this method since you have a working backup. You can read my guide here http://www.wiihacks.com/bricked-wii-...ing-guide.html

    FYI - Updating the system menu doesn't return the Wii back to stock. This isn't a stock Wii.

    I'm moving this thread into the bricked section where it belongs.

    Dop-ios mod bricks again. A certain someone is working on a solution to this. So perhaps in the future it can be fixed via nand programing without keys. Something about corrupting the proper super block, or something, over my head.

    @OP, since the wii is old you should be able to send it out for nand reprogramming, regardless if you have the keys or not. That is probably the only way to fix it, unless you think he had Darkcorp installed on the wii, or perhaps he followed my softmod guide. If he did have darkcorp or follow my guide you could update the system menu with streamlinehd's downgrade disc. This would allow you to fix the issue.

    Thanks to the two of your for your generosity.

    Here's what I can report.
    I followed the method of using the System Menu v912 Downgrade disc. Downloaded, extracted and saved to a formatted SD card the Dop-Mii files.

    Purchased a Gamecube controller, followed a video about the SaveMii procedure and all that comes up is a black screen showing 4.3(USA) and nothing else happens.

    So I guess it's obvious that is doesn't have any of the cioscorp/darkcorp/dip patched on it's memory.

    With all of that said am I missing something really obvious or is that a homework assignment that I'll need to go digging for?

    Thanks all the same.
