bricked wii 4.2u
well first off i never said to leave wiihacks to go to youtube, get your facts right. 2. you need a nand backup to restore your wii too 99.9% original. obviosly you your self have no idea how to fix a bricked wii, or else you would have given advise already, 3, nintendo will charge you for fixing this problem, and they are not dumb when it comes to updates, play it dumb yes, theyll just shake there heads at you, i mod and fix wii;s all the time here where i live and never have bricked ONE!! WII. sorry but i know what im doing, yes you uninstalled the ios30 which is the system menu. now if you press power and then instantly hold the reset button untill priiloader starts then you can indeed statrt the proccess to fix the wii. unless of course you didnt mod your wii correctly in the first place and didnt install priiloader, inwhich case your dumb, and shoulldnt be attempting such a delicate mod. in which case you bricked and now you wasted 200 bucks. as for me, im not gonna reply no more since incimpitent people who replied to my post trying to help someone out are being ass h&le's. and fyi, youtube is a very helpful place in doing research on wii's. i use it often, and have found more and more and more things for my wii. thanks and have a great day. there are many many sites on wii;s, not just wiihacks
as for mauiafrog
if the person posting this thread about bricking his wiii has priiloader installed he can fix it, if he doesnt, which would be a dumb move in a mod, he cant fix the problem, i my self have it installed, just last night i accidentally updated my wii, it wiped out the cios for playing back ups but nothing else, i just got a black screen on my neo gamma and my wiiflow usb loader, i simply redid the b1 and c1 steps to reinstall the correct cios for these loaders, my wii still works perfect!!!
as for have the ios30 on your sd, thats just not a good idea, never uninstall a wad you dont know anything about.
Youtube guides are horrible, they are non specific and can and have bricked wii's.
Ios30 is not the system menu
You are confused and don't understand the issues of this thread.
A nand backup is useless in this situation, short of a nand flash.
All advise can be found in post #2.
Question? What would happen to my wii if I install ios30 and system menu 3.2? You should know the answer.
FYI, according to searches on the internet, even your own wiihacks, it says system ios30 is the system menu. i only mod wii's on the 4.2u menu!!! nothing lower, i just did one today with the new driveset, everything works exept dvdr playback. the one and only ios that should be on your sd card should be the ios70 for vc's, and even that shouldnt be on there, nicely enough i have obtained the persons personal email, not thru wiihacks to communicate with them, all my modded wii's, over 50 now has never had a problem, not been bricked, priloader is the essential tool in this case and all!!! the files for fixing this problem can be found via the internet.
like i said before, im running 4.2u, same as the guy in the thread, no one around my parts of the state and city are running lower, that i know of. 4.2u is fully moddable and mine is modded to the fullest,,
im going to go ahead and personally email this guy and see if i cant help, chances are he has a fully bricked wii, but hey it might only be a semi bricked wii. who knows.
as for my backups i run cios38rev14, with an ios222, 223, ect. with an ios70 for my vc's.
thank you for your opinions on youtube but i and thousands of others find it very usefull, sorry there not coming to your site instead,
OK heres my story i installed bootmii and preloader correctly my wii is fully bricked if i can remember my FW was 4.2u and tried 2 downgrade it 2 4.0u all im getting is a black screen when i turn on my wii and now my preloader isnt working ive tried holding the reset button about 20 to 25 times already but nothing comes up what could happened to my preloader:(:(:(:(
How long do i have to hold the reset buton for and how long does it take to get to the preloader screen can someone please reply ASAP thanks
Help mii please
How long do i hold down da reset button to go to the preloader menu
You only need to hold it for a few seconds. I think by trying to downgrade u will have wiped out preloader.
