    I bricked my Wii. Please help.

    I have a wii model LU738.... (newer wii; ios bootmii). I had successfully installed the homebrew channel through using the Indiana Jones method. Then I decided to downgrade my Wii from version 4.3U to 4.1U. I used the the Dop-Mii v16 method. I used the IOS250 as base and installed the IOS60 V.6174(all patch) and IOS34 V.3348 (not patch). The first time I installed them I get errors. I did it the second time and they installed. Now, then, I tried to downgrade to 4.1U right. It downloaded everything correctly and can't get it to install the some error popped up (All of these were done through the method of ARHP something like that). So, I decided to go back to the homebrew brower and tried dop-Mii one more time. However, this time I was curious what happened when I decided to go to base ios250 using the non ARHP(something like that). The thing gave me an error and I couldn't do anything with my remote control. So, I did the most idiotic thing ever. I turned off the Wii and restarting again. And now, all I see is black screen with no system menu and I can't get the wiimote to connect at all. I didn't get the Priiloader install (stupid of me). Is that mean I don't have a way to get back into the Homebrew browser again and I'm basically stucked with a bricked Wii? If it helps, I have the backup of the Nand file and keys. Please I really need help with this. I tried the GC controller method and it didn't work. Are there anything that I can do to restore back my nand or possibly get into the Wii Homebrew channel?

    Sorry. That wasn't my intention. I just want to clarify how did I really get into this situation in the first place. What I did and all that. Here's summary DOP-MII V16: 2 time base iOS250 ARHPO...: IOS60 V.6174, IOS34 V.3348 (All failed install first time though downloaded). 4.1U downgrade download fine. Error installing. Exit. Back to Dop-Mii. based IOS50 non ARHPO.... (B button in DoP-Mii): everything freeze. Turn off, and back on. Death screen.

    That is good. However, building a wall of text using a font to make things look uninteresting will just put anyone with a problem solving brain, into a coma.

    True. Not interesting at all. All I found were unbricking using the older Wii. The way I see it there are 2 options? Nand it out and delete and write it back. The other is Wanniko modchip I believe. Do you have others, oddgriffin?

    Go here have a look around, post you issue there if you can't find anything, but don't use that underline font.

    Wow, I didn't know I underline all that. Let me change that. Didn't notice until you told me I underline them. I am using a nontradional blackbackground on portablechrome and white text. Sorry, didn't see the underline part until now (thought was normal).
    Also, would it be possible to move the thread from here to there? I don't want to double post same topic in 2 different sections. Guess I have to wait for the mod. If you are, oddgriffin, would you mind? Thank you.

    Have a look at this thread ---> http://www.wiihacks.com/bricked-wii-...creen-wii.html

    No priiloader and no bootmii as boot 2 means that you don't have many options available to you. Have a look at that thread above and decide where to go from there.
    You may well need to get the nand reprogrammed - For this a nand backup would be helpful

    Thank you Narse1979. Does the infectius chip works on the newer wii version? As I read, it said it injected the code into the boot2 which the newer wii version doesn't have at all because it starts with LU738... I really hope that I can avoid soldering anything(no experience). Probably gonna burn the chip beyond recoverable.
    Also, on another note. Based on what I did, does that mean that I have completely erase my system menu and make it so confusing that my wii doesn't know what type of system menu I have because I tried the Savemiifrii and it doesn't show up anything at all. Does the Savemiifrii works on the newer Wii? Are there no way to load the HBC again, ever without opening the wii?
