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.

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