    Bricked Wii Red 4.3u

    Sorry for putting up a post that someone might have answered but I've seen some many different answer for different wiis so I'm asking about mines...

    I'm pretty much new to the whole softmod wii. well i was able to softmod my wii and playing around with it i came across the boot2. and I know for a fact i installed it cause i uninstalled it and re installed it. That was a month ago...I went on and do something (can't remember what) but it cause it to brick. I've tired everything possible. GC controller, Turn on and hold the reset button...and i only get the Black screen....Is there any way i can fix this? cause if not i'll just have to buy me a new/used Wii....

    If it's red, its IOS. Your best bet is likely going to be SaveMii. Read Mauifrogs blackscreen guide.

    Knowing what you did (or better put what you're doing) is helpful to solving problems and/or making things work well.

    How many times does the drive flash when you power up? If once bootmii is installed as a ios and if twice bootmii is installed as boot 2.

    But as mentioned above its prob going to be 99.9% installed as a ios.

    Can you power the wii on with the remote?

    Can you get into priiloader by holding down reset and then hitting power?

    I have to disagree with Narse. If you bought a red Wii then you installed Bootmii as IOS and not as Boot2 100%. It sounds like you tried Savemiifrii as BluePhant suggested but did you disassemble the controller and break the tab on the d-pad? Did you use an official Nintendo GC or aftermarket? What do you mean by "I went on and do something (can't remember what) but it cause it to brick". Anything you can add to the story might help.

    Did I not say 99.9% that it would be installed as a ios? User was sure he had installed it as boot 2 so why not give them the 00.1% (note the decimal) chance that it could have been. Talk about splitting hairs....

    Ok guy thanks for all the help. Like i said in the first post. What i did. I really cant remember. but the bottom line is that it's bricked. I brought a GC controller from Gamestop. I didn't open it so that could have been it. but when i turn on the wii....(wait i'm really checking the light thingy narse asked me) it flash one time. the power does come on with the wii remote and No i can't get into the priiloader..I think that pretty much covered what you guys asked me
