    Talking A Fully Bricked Wii, a pick-apart for you guys.

    Well, I figured I would post this, as it seems to be something I cannot repair, and buying Infectus is more expensive here than buying a Wii at a pawn shop lol.

    SysCheck


    Here's where it gets interesting. I followed THIS guide:
    GBAtemp.net > Trouble getting X game to work? CHECK HERE FIRST!
    To update THESE IOS's:

    Hermes 202 [57] v5, Hermes 202 [57] v4, Hermes 224 [57] v5 , Hermes 223 [37-38] v4, Waninkoko 249 [56] v21d2x5, Waninkoko 250 [57] v21d2x5

    Note that I used Hermes' VERSION 4 for IOS202-b57 & Waninkoko's d2x5 for IOS249-b56 and IOS250-b57

    After that I read up on other posts in other threads of some other IOS's I *COULD* update (Note: No one in those threads ever said that updated them could damage the Wii/Brick It)

    SO, after all that, I did the following using DOP-Mii WiiBrew Edition (The latest SVN as of June 7th, 2011)

    Installed Conents below with IOS236 (rev 65535): Trucha Bug, ES Identify, NAND Access

    Installed IOS41-v3348
    Updated IOS50 to v5120
    IOS60 updated to v6400 and Trucha Signed/Patched via NUS
    IOS61 updated to v5661 and Trucha Signed/Patched via NUS
    Install IOS70-v6912 Fakesigned/Patched via NUS
    Install IOS80-v6943 Fakesigned/Patched via NUS
    BC updated to v6

    Take in mind ALL IOS hashes passed in DOP-Mii, and all installed successfully. Nothing wrong. Was able to browse around my SD Card fine.

    Now HERE is where the fun begins. I backed out of the IOS Install page of DOP-Mii to its main menu, decided to do a syscheck with DOP-Mii to make sure the IOS's were displayed correctly and installed right. And.............

    CRASH!!
    Dop-Mii spits out a DLI Error or something of the sort and a bunch of numbers follow suit, then a break (whitespace etc) then it said HALT and more numbers and the Wii froze. WiiMote's LEDs starting blinking in random patterns and the CD LED was fading in and out.

    Needless to say I had to do a hard reboot, simply to see a beautiful black screen.

    Any Input? I dont need a brick fix, as I have already called Nintendo and am getting a replacement free of charge. I simply want to know what you experienced people think happened to this poor Wii. I woulndt imagine installing a patched IOS70 or IOS80 would brick it, even though those are for 4.2 and 4.3, respectively. 4.1 would have no reason to access them. If you think what I did was dumb, it doesn't matter lol, I have another 19 Wii's to work with.

    Any Input would be great =D

    Assuming that the guide was reputable and poplar (the site you linked to is pretty legit but can't speak to that guide) then I would assume user error. Any chance you installed a system menu that you didn't have an ios for or installed an ios that was faulty? I'm just shooting from the hip here and am glad you're getting a replacement wii. I'm not a brick master and I'm sure some better help will come along, but that's my off the cuff response and questions. Also please do not link to external guides here.

    Firstly, sorry for posting guides. Mustve missed that in the rules. =O

    Secondly, No, there is no user error. I did not install any System Menus at all. And to respond to the other part, unless NUS has faulty IOS's on their server, then no. Everything I posted is EXACTLY how I did what I did.

    It sounds like you know what you're doing and I agree that it wasn't a fault on NUS's part. The site you linked (as long as it was a popular guide) shouldn't have ran you into a wall either. I know one of our brick experts is also active on that site so you might benefit from making a thread there if you find no response here. Hope you get it up and running!

    I would say it's difficult to tell. Based on your SysCheck, your softmodding (previous to the brick) wasn't based on a wiihacks guide. I ass-u-me you tried to hold down on the reset button --- just to verify Priiloader is non-functional/unaccessible, right?

    Well, for the record, i followed muaifrog's guide to the T, and had a perfectly good working mod for months. Then when it came time to play some of the newer games that didnt like my setup, I decided to upgrade.

    Now, given the statistics where any single person can find a plethora of guides on either this website or any other Wii modding website, it's safe to say that one could easily get confused as to which one is "most" up to date, or accurate. Accuracy would then be an opinion. It's kind of hard to know which guide to follow, and plus with all the revisions and versions of IOS's, who's to know if they update one day, that it will be outdated in the morning lol...



    EDIT: Nightstah, Yes, I did that, to no avail. And you are misguided; the way I softmodded my Wii was to par with muaifrog's soft mod any wii tutorial as of January 12th, 2011 at 7:42 PM CST.

    Well let's put it this way. If you follow a guide here and have issues with a particular game, feel free to search the forums for a solution. Then if that yields no results, you can ask and it is a good bet that folks here can help.
    If you followed a site from another guide, it would be difficult to tell what was installed and more factors that folks here are unaware of would come to play. But the site you followed the guide from is the best place to ask before deciding to do anything rash, like updating things.
    Folks here know what our guides will do to your console, and an idea of any resulting issues. We don't however know what a guide from another site will do to your console, or an immediate fix for a problem resulting.
