semibricked wii with an interesting history.
the wii i am trying to unbrick has me a little stumped.
i'm pretty used to PSP modding but i dont work with wii's much.
heres what i know about it:
US wii, purchased within 6 months of wii's release.
currently running 4.3u.
currently has bootmii on boot2
formerly had HBC, it was removed manually.
it has never been downgraded directly, aside from NAND recovery.
it has gone between bricked and semibricked status multiple times. we do have a NAND backup, but the backup was made in what appears to be a semibricked state.
before successful NAND restore: wii menu does not load, freezing at health and safety warning. trying to load HBC or wii menu from bootmii resulted in a hard crash.
after multiple attempts, an apparently successful NAND restore leaves me in this position:
system is barely functional, it actually booted to main menu once, so we tried to update:
newer titles (skyward sword) allowed me to run an update, from 4.3u to 4.3u (lol?)
SD menu of data management= freeze. on ANY SD card. including freshly formatted wii-branded ones.
system settings = system data is corrupted, refer to manual blahblah.
aside from these issues it appears to be functional.
ive got a feeling someone out there has a pretty direct answer to this one, but i see too many different answers, and many dont seem to apply to my individual case; so i thought i'd finally just make a thread.
