    Help! - bricked wii?


    I tried to softmod my wii today and installed the HBC successfully and also installed bootmii as IOS. i also have a backup of my nand.

    After following the softmod guide i had everything working. this was for a wii on 3.4.

    I decided to upgrade the firmware to 4.0 as mentiond in the softmod guide.
    About halfway through the update there was a power failure to the wii.
    Now when i turn the wii on all i get is a black screen. no video and no sound.

    the wii mote cant connect to the wii also.

    Can someone please help?

    Moved to correct section - Made a bit of a mess of it and deleted WiiJohn's welcome post by accident.

    It's amazing how many people have power failures when updating their Wiis.

    What you have now is a fully bricked Wii.

    You may be able to enter recovery console and autoboot a retail New Super Mario Bros Wii game disc.

    Use the savemiifrii method i.e. Gamecube controller modded to press all directions on D pad at the same time as you power up your Wii. Check youtube for savemiifrii.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    That is the worst luck in the world, power loss at system update. Sorry for your luck, or lack of. Let us know how this pans out.
