    Almost a full brick

    Okay, so quite some time ago i softmodded my friends wii using this guide:
    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html
    i believe his will was at 4.3u and ended up getting downgraded to 4.1u using MMM. bootmii was installed, i'm fairly certain it was on boot2 but i could be mistaken, it was awhile ago. i have his nand backed up on my computer currently. priiloader is also installed.

    Anyway he just gave his wii back to me a few days ago and says that his wii doesn't work anymore, that it black screens at start up. he said for awhile now it was doing "weird stuff" in the system menu, and that he had some corrupted save files. i don't know what the weird stuff was, but he said his wii was freezing.

    So for the past week i've been trying to restore it, but to no avail. something else was where bootmii should have been, something called "cboot2 dol loader v16" which i had no idea what to do with. i looked it up but couldn't quite grasp it, seems very complicated. anyway i was able to get to priiloader, and then from "launch title" i could start the homebrew channel. i tried starting bootmii from there, but it just went back to that cboot2 thinger. so then i tried running hackmii installer, but that wouldn't run either because it was mad about the ios'.

    So then i was browsing on here for some days, and i came across and followed this guide:
    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...am-freeze.html
    that allowed me to run hackmii, which i did, and i reinstalled bootmii on boot2. then i celebrated to early, popped a cold guinness open, and went back to my room to load his nand up. but when i started the wii, it did nothing but flash its little disc drive at me! just blinkin. tauntin me. whatev.

    so i can still get to priiloader, but i don't get bootmii or that cboot2 thing to come up at all. i can still get to the homebrew channel from priiloader. oh and priiloader is version 0.4, if that helps any. i'm totally lost. i really was browsing alot, and didn't find anything of use... sorry if i missed something obvious, but i would really appreciate any help you guys can give. this side project is keeping me away from MY wii.

    Thank god you have priiloader and/or boot2. This wii can be fixed.

    Im not the absolute best at fixing wii's so i'll wait for a specialist in this kind of stuff to come in.

    Allright, no problem. First, try restoring the NAND back-up to his wii using bootmii. To do so, first make a back-up of all the files on the SD card, then format it (you do really need to format it) and then download the bootmii folder and place it on the SD:
    bootmii folder-E.rar
    bootmii_folder-U.zip

    If that doesn't work, try it with another SD card. If it still doesn't work, try this guide: Fully Brick, Bootmii/boot2 installed but No Nand Backup? Solution Here!

    I thought i responded to this already, but maybe it didn't go through or something... weird...
    anyway, like i said in the original post was that i can't actually get to bootmii, it just black screens and my disc drive blinks forever. all i can do is get to priiloader and homebrew channel. i either need an alternate way to reload the nand, or some way to make my boot2 work. i don't understand whats going on there at all. thanks anyways though!

    Do you have the bootmii folder on your sd card?

    Load priiloader, ensure that the settings are set to autoboot the wii, disable all hacks except block update. Perhaps you are autobooting to a file that is not on the sd card, perhaps you have a hack enabled the causes the system menu to black screen.

    @playerkp420: i understand that there are a lot of special people out there, but that's just insulting. yes, it's on there.
    @mauifrog: i checked, and i am set to autoboot to the wii menu. i have no hacks enabled currently, i tried to boot with and without block update. is there a way i can erase whatever is on boot2 right now, and then try installing it again?

    I read that as trying to help, not insulting at all. It's a comon mistake and I wondered it when I was reading your post as well. When you power on does your dvd light flash once, or twice quickly?

    if the sd card is in it flashes once, but then once it gets to boot2(i think anyway) it starts to just blink on and off repeatedly until i turn it off. if the sd card is not in, it blinks once, pause, then blinks twice, black screen. also, i don't know exactly what this means, but if i have the sd card in and turn it on, it isn't "going" to a black screen, instead it actually displays nothing. my tv displays the blue screen that it normally displays when there is no signal. so when it displays a black screen, like when i have the sd card in and turn it on, it actually is displaying something, i guess. its just black. i hope you understand what i mean by this. i don't know if it's relevant, but it certainly is interesting.

    oh, and appologies for my snide comment. terrible day.

    Run syscheck
    You can run it from priiloader, from HBC, or via cboot2. Then post the syscheck report here.

    Just format your sd card and extract
    http://www.mediafire.com/file/p7oyz8...10-CB2-BB2.zip to sd:\
    Boot the wii, syscheck should load via cboot2. If it does not load, rename the bootmii folder to cboot2, then boot the wii into priiloader. You can load the boot.dol from priiloaders load/install, or load it from the HBC.

    If needed there is a bootmii and HBC loader that you can load from priiloader if you need to.
