You do need nand reprogramming
I have a friend, who has done 10+ Wii's, following the guide, to the letter. He has never had a problem.
This was my 1'st Wii mod, so I followed everything to the letter, checked, verified, etc. It seemed to be going till HBC with priiloader install I clicked on to load/install, and I know I pressed the power on/off button by mistake instead of reset. I didn't have a GC Controller at the time of the soft mod, so i was using the Wii controller, and the power button reset button for manuvering arround the black screen (bootmill for installing all the wads). When it came back on, it was black screen of death. I just purchased it (GC Controller) to attempt the port #4/dpad reset, with no luck whatsoever.
Anyways, no doubt, NAND Programming is needed.
I have every step documented, and every program downloaded from guide, with all backups before BSOD (Black Screen Of Death).
I hope these extra precautions can save it (with reprogramming help), as it is a very lightly used (10-20hrs max), 2010 Black Model (my friends).
I will start writting out the messages now to the 3 USA experts mentioned in the reply.
Thank you for the help mauifrog.
Hold on, it sounds like priiloader did install and load, you set the hacks and installed the usbforwarder.dol?
Try to hold the reset button and power the wii while holding the reset button.
Hello,Just folow this tutorial step by step to softmod a 3.3E (updated to 4.1 with patched IOS60) and after installing Priiloader, went back to HBC, Power OFF and hold down Reset button to enter Priimenu but the wii console remains on black screen; so i never got in Priimenu..
Bootmii is instaled as a IOS.
Serial number of console is LEF1176, it seems that is not boot2 compatible.
Any chance to get it fixed from here?
Googled just 5 minutes and i got to the conclusion that this is a full brick. I don't have a GC controler to try 4 button trick.
Anyway, i have made the nand backup with bootmii.
I read that to reprogram wii nand's you need Infectus.
Well, at the moment i have Olimex-LPC2148 witch i used to jtag my xbxo360 my console, read/write ok the nand of xbox 360 console.
Olimex seems more cheaper than infectus at that moment to read/write the xbox nand.
So, is there any tutorial around or workaround to program the wii nand with my Olimex nand programer?
Or the only solution is to buy the infectus?
Hopefully mauifrog will step by here and give a clue about what is possible to recover...
Thanks in advance!
thx so much.. now im certain that i have a full brick and i did it while installing a bad wad... i think the solution is simple.. i just need to load wad manager with cboot2 and unninstall the wad that bricked my wii.
the problem is that when the wadmanager loads my wiimote does not connect... even thogh i turned my wii on with it.
what are my options from this point on? get a gamecube controller? i think i red somewere that gamecube does not work with wadmamager :(
pls help.. i had given up on my wii if it werent for this thread.. so thx again ;)
Place this on the root of your sd card and switch the wii on
thx! ill try this when i get home from work...
edit: just tryed it.. my wiimote still wont connect.. :(
is there an app i can load with cboot2 to sync my wimotes?
Hey Maui. The black screen of Wii can also be caused by a bad BT controller. This can be fixed for under $10. If the wiimotes are not working, the Wii will not load the SM. Check for Blue toooth connectivity before formatting your Wii.
Just noticed you have addressed the bad BT issue- my bad.
Well, I got my new BT controller from China and installed with nothing new happening. I have no controllers sync, since letting the kids play on the Internet channel on my softmodded Hollywood ver. 4.2U. I downloaded the file you had on he thread with the old version of HBC and priiloader and got them running with the gamecube controller and SD card. I had checked on the status of boot2 and it says its installed as 4. I now have functionality using Neogamma 8 RPC4 on the SD card- recognises the USB hard drive and I'm running any game that you don't need the wiimotes for.
I've learned- my IOS's are perfectly fine- I'm running games which require them, so they must still be good. I even got the SM to show the version on the corner of the screen by using my priiloader hacks.
I'm wondering if the NAND is corrupted, why are all the games still working? What would happen if I apply a System upgrade? If bootmii is installed as IOS, can't I run it off the SD card? Is there a tutorial for that?
Some of my other programs are working as well, but most require the wii motes, like pimp my wii and dop mii.
I'm kinda happy I got the hard drive operating with the classic controllers, but I'd really like to fix this.
Also the SM screen does load.
