Hello, I know this thread hasn't been updated or anything in a long time, but I am having the problem stated in the 1st post but all the download links are no longer available. Is there any chance anyone has updated ones? Would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
I moved your post into a new post of its own.
Do you have a boot2-capable system with bootmii installed in it?
If so, you can look at the Softmod Any Wii guide, look at "other desperate options" (instead of choosing letterbomb or bannerbomb), and it should give you a set of files to try to start remodding your system based on using bootmii as boot2, once you get started, it should start working from there.
If someone else is reading this that has more experience at handling this sort of brick, please chime in. :)
I do have bootmii installed on it, but that's it. I'm actually not sure if it's IOS or boot2, I did this a long time ago.
I have been trying several different sets of files, almost everything, nothing seems to work. The most I can get is bootmii , and/or a black screen with "cboot2 dol loader v16" and "IOS version____" or something like that, spazzing down my screen. (what could that mean?)
Thank you for responding and I hope you and/or others can help me, it's important to be able to use this Wii again and access my online save files and stuff.
P.S : I love your avatar llaffer : D
My disc drive only flashes once when I turn the wii on so I think that is an indicator I only have Bootmii installed as IOS? I don't know what I can do..
Hello, thought I would update this..
I believe I do actually have Bootmii as boot2. Bootmii does load, however bootmii is all I can seem to access. I tried the files you suggested ,llafer, but it hasn't worked (I just get text spamming down my screen and nothing will load). The only thing I have that can help me other than the fact I have bootmii as boot2 (I think) is my keys.bin. I suppose at this point my options would be reprogramming NAND , or replacing any buggered hardware (not sure if this is the case though). I would greatly appreciate some insight from someone knowledgable, haha. I would be willing to pay someone do that kind of work for me , I just don't know anyone or where to look for someone who would do this kind of work, as I know I am not suitable to do it. In my amateur opinion I think that would be the route to go, would just appreciate some advice, and perhaps a point in the right direction to someone who can do this work. As you can see, my wii data is quite important to me lol.
Thanks in advance.
You have your NAND, or keys only? You can check your Wii's serial number against this thread to have a good idea if BootMii is IOS or Boot2.
There are some milds options such as this, and far more serious options like this or this.
I only have my keys. Each time I've attempted a NAND backup on the bricked wii, it would freeze during the backup and have alot of bad blocks.
My bootmii is most likely boot2, LU317 which is compatible. As well when I turn on the system without an SD card I get 1 flash when I power on and then 2 quick flashes (which I think indicates boot2).
I was able to get a complete NAND backup, but there were about 20~30 bad blocks (didn't verify). I'm not sure what I can do next but I do have my keys and a bricked wii NAND backup lol.
Well, a backup of a bricked NAND doesn't help you. If you had a NAND of the system when it worked, then you could use bootmii to restore it back into a working system.
I figured. Well here's another question.. All I really care about is my gamesaves/data from 1 game on my bricked wii. Is it possible to retrieve those from the NAND dump, with the ability to transfer them to another Wii? It sounds doable, but what do I know
