Low Level Brick?
Hopefully someone can help me..
I softmodded the wii with bannerbomb, installed bootmii as IOS (only option), got HBC and preloader.
All worked great.
Yesterday I wanted to play call of duty online, but my internet wouldnt connect so I unplugged our router and plugged it back in, as to where it asked for an update, which I was too fast for my own good, and pressed yes..I cant believe I am that stupid, but the damage is done.
Then the wii would still start up, but wouldnt read discs nomore, not even the original ones, and wouldnt start games using usb loaders either, it would all freeze up.
I did do a NAND backup, but I didnt put it back on my computer, so i couldnt restore it, cause the update messed everything on my sd card up i guess.
Then i was reading and somewhere it said downgrade your system with anyregionchanger , to 3.2, which i tried....
And yes thats where it fucked up completely, now it starts up with a black screen and then it wont even turn off untill i unplug it.
the wiimote can still turn the wii on though..
I tried the safemiifrii method, opend up our GC controller and press the dpad buttons all at once,, but nothing happens...
What to do??:(
im afraid you may have a white house brick, until a solution is found, sorry :(
