Bricked US Launch Wii - Should be able to fix it but nothing works
Ok, so I have an original launch date US wii that I have modded following the Softmod any wii tutorial on this site.
I have bricked in the past but have always been able to recover each time. However, this time is different.
I was on 4.1U with Boot2 and priiloader installed.
I decided to go to 4.3U using the guide so that I would have have the most up to date IOS's so that I could play the newer release games.
Everything worked fine for a day or two and then things went wrong.
System files became corrupt but I was able to load to priiloader.
I didn't unbrick right then because bootmii no longer worked from prii loader or HBC.
So I thought I would work on it later.
My wife continued to play it from USB through priiloader but I always loaded it for her.
She only played it twice. Then I forgot about it for a few weeks until the kids started bugging me about it.
Now, priiloader no longer works and I can't get into bootmii either.
When I hit the power button, the light blinks twice to confirm the bootmii is installed.
Nothing appears on the screen at all. Loads straight to black screen.
I do not get a health screen because I previously disabled it with priiloader.
An SD card with my bootmi files on it only causes the wii light to blink on and off continuously until I power it down. Same thing with the bootmii mauifrog bootmii files in one of the threads.
Holding eject on startup no longer loads priiloader.
Trying savemiifrii mode with a gamecube controller doesn't bring up the firmware.
The only thing that has ever revealed anything on the screen is when I tried to use the B.L.I.N.D. recovery method. I put the files from the guide on my SD card and when I loaded the Wii, it brought up the following:
cBoot2 DOL loader v16
IOS Version 2 v16 0X00020010
Failed to load IOS.
Ok. That's it.
I am open for suggestions.
I did just see a guide on using a NAND formatter program. I will try that and post what happens.
For now, any comments and suggestions are appreciated.
