    Need help! Wii broken?

    First of all, I'm not sure if this is the right place, and I'm sorry if it is! but I don't know where to go!


    And this is a pretty long message, but please take the time, and bear with me, please.
    Thanks in advance!


    Hey, thanks for the amazing tutorials, but now I think I screwed up big time.


    My friend wanted to softmod his wii.
    I told him to wait, and let a friend of mine do it who did it more often. But here is what happened, the modding went great until the wii shutsdown, and goes into Bootmii, which it did not (used a Micro adata SD) now, we thought all was well, but games did not load, "Monster Hunter Tri" went to the main screen but can't press start, and "Zelda Skyward Sword" doesn't work at all.

    So we tried to put back the NAND file, but the wii didn't boot to bootmii, we couldn't enter via Homebrew, it said bootmii wasn't installed, after a while we got there but the back-up part said: "try harder Hashimoto san"
    My friend got fed up, and did a memory format, now no crack works. Priiloader works, from there we can go to bootmii, still same error. And we can't update, and it seems IOS is still on it and can't be deleted.

    *EDIT* (more information)
    During the Hack we changed the wii to 4.1E. Since a youtube tutorial did this as well and we wanted to make sure we'd follow every step. Now that the memory is erased, Homebrew and all the other channels we got are gone. We tried to Letterbomb it again, but the wii just froze with that. We also tried a 4.1 hack. But this gave us a message that an later version of IOS is installed. I forgot the details, and my friend is gone now and took his wii. But this is probably the most. We couldn't install Homebrew aswell.

    Can you help at all? or is the wii destroyed now?


    Tools used:
    SD: Micro adata SD card (BAD)
    HDD: Samsung M2 portable (should work)
    new SD: kingston SDHC 4GB Class 4 (Also wrong)


    Going to get a Sandisk for my own, letting someone else do it who knows about this.

    Bootmii wouldn't load up because you need the bootmii folder on your sd card. And it can be picky with what sd card you use. sd(not sdhc) and 2gb or less is what you need. Formatting the Wii didn't do anything but erase your game saves and your homebrew channel. Those 2 games need a little attention to get to work. You probably just needed to change the cIOS they load with in game settings of your loader.

    I would suggest getting the correct sd card and start from the beginning of the softmod any wii guide.

    Thank you for the reply!

    We've tried to start the softmod again, but letterbomb didn't open, it just froze. I will get the Sandisk SD card though and I will try it again. But I also used a 4.1 hack (which the wii is currently at) and it said there was already an IOS on it.

    We have tried that one, but it said we had a newer softmod on it. Because we downgraded the wii's firmware during the letterbomb hack (with all the modding that came with it)
    So basically, the hack is still there, we can't use it, can't delete it, can't install it.

    Also: Sorry if I'm a little vague in this. I don't have the wii at this moment, and can't remember all the things it showed us.
    But Thanks for taking the time to help me!
