am I bricked
Hi, I was new to this modding lark, but I managed through tutorials to install homebrew, cios rev 14, anyregion changer, wad installer etc,
I have a wii 4.1E USB 320 passport drive etc
I installed a wad if I remember and it came up and said that I had an error, I had to power down the wii, when I tried to power it back up it did nothing the drive tries to spin but there is just a black screen i get nothing through to my tv... is my wii bricked, im sure it probably is..
if so whats the easiest and quickest way to fix..
thanks in advance.
That is a full brick and this is for bannerbricks. Unless you had a NAND Backup and bootmii installed as boot2, your only option is to send it back to nintendo who will most likely charge for the repair. Also try powering on the with the wiimote to ensure that it is not a bluetooth module problem

My guess: he probably messed around with IOS60 but i could be wrong.

I have tried booting it with the wiimote and it wont have it still balck screen.
I was trying to install a theme, so was in or around softmii at the time, cant remember exactly what I did.
Is there defo no way that I can recover this console myself??? (C'mon surely theres a way)
Not even with a bootdisc??
Also.. If I really do have no other option than to send it to nintendo does anybody have any idea roughly how much it will cost, I sent back a wii last week that had a broken disc drive and it cost 27.40GBP.
I appreciate all of your responses.. thank you

I had Cioscorp installed and Softmii NAND browser... ?
I also had Preloader installed on the SD card so it was showing on the homebrew but I never had chance to install it from there...
Man Im gonna be gutted if I have to pay nintendo to fix it !!!
I cant believe in this day and age with all you clever folk on wiihacks that you cant think of a way round this lol :p
I don't think being clever has much to do with it. Anything we can do is limited by the hardware and software of the Wii and the way by which we can access said hardware and software.
If you did, as has already been alluded to, delete or compromise your IOS60 you have no chance to recover as IOS60 is needed to run the System Menu, Preloader and also the recovery menu. Important one that IOS60.
Themes, despite being very pretty and clever, do come with several risks and you seem to have found one of them. They replace critical Wii files with custom ones and when they fail it's kaput time.
Your only chance, and this has already been mentioned, is that you installed bootmii as boot2 prior to messing about with dodgy themes.
Off to nintendo it goes then lol
Cheers anyway guys
